All smile because the sun is out, all spring up because the spring is in the air. To bypass the grey and gloomy winter out of the calendar, I stepped out wearing the spring palettes and headed to the West London gem at Bywater Street in Chelsea. Year in year out, the houses of Bywater Street continue to hold on the vibrant pastel colours they have been painted with, but especially when its spring time, this cul-de-sac shines in all its colourful tones.
Why do some leaves turn red during autumn? Is it because they are angry at the prospect of an incoming chilly winter soon precipitating their decoupling from the mother trees?
The sun has got its hat on, hip hip hooray!
A staycation makes you enjoy the beauty and charm of your own city or country without having to venture out a great distance. The nice little stint at the Macdonald Bertyeside Hotel & Spa was that opportunity to teleport myself into the realm of the illusion of being far away from home.
The end of the week is the start of rekindling the connection between us. A lunch or dinner date, a movie, may be a stroll around the best city in the world. Not to mention we try to match the breathes we inhale and exhale with the number of photos we take of everything. Last weekend was yet another attempt to foray into this ritual by immersing ourselves in the amazing mazes of Soho in Central London.
Be careful, be very careful when there is a ‘den’ hidden in the name of a place. All things secret, all things cult, all things unique and outlandish – a perfect melange of typical tourist like items and characteristic Londoner attributes – nowhere in London will you find the presence of both but in the intriguing, historic, camouflaged den of London, Camden.
