I love being a tourist at home, especially in an area as vibrant and colourful as the east end of London. It’s fun to look around with fresh eyes, like a holidaymaker exploring somewhere new, or a child discovering the world for the very first time.
Sometimes spending a day not looking at my watch or iPhone, can feel like a holiday. And in this busy world of plans, schedules, to do lists, and so on, it’s welcomed escape from my daily routine.
My man and I walked miles, and treated ourselves to plenty of coffee shop breaks. After all there are few things more relaxing than a cup of Earl Grey tea while watching the world go by. We ended the day at an Italian restaurant off Brick Lane, and as the sun set it definitely felt like we were on holiday.
