Little Venice and Camden Lock · 29 May 2006
I never knew London had canals. Not before I moved here at least. They even have a place called Little Venice, which is the place where Grand Union Canal meets the Regents Canal. It is great for walking, because you can walk along the old towpath (from the time they used horses to pull the [...]
Natural History Museum, London · 28 May 2006
If you like museums, South Kensington is the place. Here you’ll find the Science Museum, the V&A (design) museum and the Natural History Museum very close to each other. And Kensington Gardens, and Royal Albert Hall are just around the corner too. If you are a National Geographic reader or Discovery Channel fan you would [...]
Take me somewhere I can call a home · 26 May 2006
I met up with 2 girls in the Starbucks on Leicester Square, and after some text communication about what we looked like, we found each other. We were going to see Prime. Prime was actually quite fun to watch, a real girls night out film, and if you love films like Love Actually you probably [...]
Notting Hill Coronet · 22 May 2006
The first time I popped up from Notting Hill Gate station, I was disappointed. I had expected to see the market, and the house with the blue door. And maybe even run into Hugh Grant, spilling his orange juice on my Love Actually t-shirt. But then, you might say I am a dreamer.
My name is Rachel Corrie, Playhouse theatre – London · 14 May 2006
I did give the half price booth of TKTS a go again yesterday. I was there on Saturday afternoon around 3pm, and the queue was impressively long. So long that I was in doubt if I wanted to queue at all. But I had my book with me, and the sun was doing it’s best [...]
A Moon for the Misbegotten · 11 May 2006
Fall in London is going to be fantastic with Kevin Spacey back on stage in the Old Vic Theatre. Kevin Spacey has just announced The Old Vic’s program, and he is going to play in A Moon for the Misbegotten.
The Thames Barrier · 1 May 2006
Thames Barrier, London and London skies … Some things just intrigue me. One of these things was the Thames Barrier, I guess because I like water and everything that has to do with it. And because the design of the barrier somehow reminds me of the Opera House in Sydney, which is a beautiful building. [...]
Blue Man Group – London · 30 April 2006
I took a picture of this bus on one of my first days in London, after my move, in the beginning of March. Already there I noticed the face of this Blue Man on the bus. And these blue faces popup on several places in London, in the underground, in cafe’s, in cinemas. Just the [...]
Dico and Dingwalls and Camden · 13 April 2006
“Hey, you want skunk ?” That was one of the first things people asked me when I hopped off the underground in Camden yesterday. “No thanks” I said. I am crazy enough in my head already without that.
Canary Wharf · 8 April 2006
Canary Wharf – the spaceship, just landed If you look through the Tower Bridge on this picture, you can see the skyscrapers in Canary Wharf. And that is where I went today.
Spring in London · 2 April 2006
London City Hall On a day like today, where spring has arrived in London, I don’t need anything else than my book. a sandwich from Marks & Spencer (still waiting for love flowering at the counter for people with under 5 items though), and a bench in a park to sit on. The sun is [...]
The Prince Charles Cinema · 16 March 2006
Yes, the cinemas on Leicester Square are incredibly expensive. But there is a way around that. Just 50 meters from Leicester Square there is The Prince Charles Cinema. This is an independent cinema and they are showing a lot of independent films, but they also show a lot of blockbusters after they have been running [...]
A week in London – a wrapup · 6 March 2006
The Milleniumbridge with St. Pauls Cathedral in the background If you are sick and tired of reading about London already : you can skip the rest of this post.
The National Portrait Gallery · 2 March 2006
The Girl In The National Portrait Gallery Even though I am still not relaxed enough to really enjoy London, I did visit the first item on my to-see list : The National Portrait Gallery. Now 2 cool things about London to begin with : many museums are open until 21.00 Thursdays and Fridays and really [...]
