Namaste London !

Happy weekend from London!

It has been a while since I updated my travelogue, the moving around, settling down and all other things that come with moving into a new city has kept me busy the last few weeks.

Travelling to a big city and visiting all touristy places is very different from living in one. For many years now, I have been looking for an opportunity to live by myself for atleast a month or two in a new place where I have never been to before and my wishes came true when I was got seconded to the UK three weeks back by my employer. London is going to be my home for the next 6 months and I am gladly looking forward to it.
 
The very next day I landed here, I got my Oyster pass made which will help me travel the length and breadth of the city via their public transport system (underground rail, DLR, bus and also the ferry service in a few routes).
We were welcomed to a very pleasant weather in London the day we landed, our happinness however didn't last long when we woke up to a rain Sunday morning with plans to travel to the Notting hill carnival,  which despite delays we reached the event and had a gala time.

 
Look forward to a whole lot of travel posts from in and around London in the coming days :)

Have you visited London or the places around it ? Where did you have your best time in London, let me know your favourite places. You never know, it could turn out be my  favourite as well !
