Stop raining!

I have school project to do and it doesn't seem to stop raining any soon. In London you definitely need waterproof camera! 

Village in the City

Moving flat seems like to be on the repertoire of each month in London. Me, my friend, friend of friend, my sister, me again and me once more. Luckily it was my sister's turn this month. After sharing room with her for one lovely month she has finally found a flat near North Greenwich station in the Millennium Village. 

Good times have arrived as she left; not just that I can walk around my flat without falling over in a random suitcase but I've got my new camera delivered. :) 

I took these pictures around my sister's place when we went for a walk to discover her new area.

Portland in 48hrs- The next 24

"Do you believe in magic
I was heavenly in love
It's a dangerous concept
'Colours so beautiful, my bluest ocean and
Tears of luck in the sky'..."- @hazels_wonder

While I was drinking my black americano I was listening to the sound of the ocean meeting the pebbles of the strand, the most relaxing sound I've ever heard. Sound of the Ocean

Waiting for the train in Weymouth.

Portland in 48hrs- The first 24

"If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hoper, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!" -Shel Silverstein

Road trip Part II.- Cheddar Gorge

On the way to Cheddar Gorge. Endless foggy green fields everywhere you looked.

And after 45 minutes of driving (probably less if I'm not there stopping the car at every other bush to take a picture) endless super-high mountains have replaced the fields.  

We drove into the centre of Cheddar Gorge where we visited the Cheddar show caves, where Britain's oldest human skeleton (the Cheddar Man) was found in 1903. The caves, produced by the activity of an underground river, contain beautiful stalactites and stalagmites painted in all colours of the rainbow.

The water was so clear that has tricked our eyes when we looked into it. Instead of the actual reflection we thought we are looking down into a deep rocky gap.

The ground was so slippery and the tunnels quite narrow so I ended up with an aching hump on my head
(I cared about my shoes more then my own skull...), but even that couldn't stop me climbing 300 stairs up to the top of the rocky mountain.

When we reached the top we met a horde of goats jumping on the cliffs, wondering around us or just having a dinner from these yellow flowered bushes. I've never seen them in their natural environment before, was such a nice experience.

The view was so amazing up there that I have forgotten about my fear of high.
Next time I should visit a beautiful place full of spiders, will might work as well :)

In those 2 days I've spent in Bath and Cheddar Gorge time has stopped and I only felt curiosity, admiration and happiness. And slept sooo well when I got back home:)

Roadtrip Part I.- City of Bath

And magic happens sometimes.
My cousin phoned me on Sunday afternoon to go somewhere out of London the next day. I suggested Bath since I've never been there and have heard about its charm many times.
City of Bath is about 3 hours driving from London and once you are there it's like an enchanted fairy tale.

It's the Bath Abbey in front and the Roman Baths on the right

 Mark Foster's (Olympic swimmer) torso made of Bath stone.

Beautiful randomness of English gardens.

 Circus, the Royal Cresent on top of the city.

I loved the colour of the buildings, gives a very special mood to the town. (Mostly Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.)

Haunted town, Bath after the sun goes down.

We had limited time for everything as we arrived only in the late afternoon. But tried to make the most of our visit so decided to stay for the night and experiment the night-life of the town of students. This is our hotel from the back.

Early waking in the next morning, a little bit hungover from last night's freshers parties but new day, new energy for the next plan. The destination: the gorgeous Cheddar Gorge. ( on the blog tomorrow)
