In my ongoing attempt to cross off everything on my London to-do list I ventured to God’s Own Junkyard. Number #46 of 2,559 of Tripadvisor’s things to do in London.
I’ve been looking for an alternative to the Sky Garden for a while now. It’s not that I don’t like the Sky Garden, but I really don’t like the Sky Garden. And thankfully, my prayers have been answered because I have finally found a place that I’m happy with recommending.
Located on the 9th floor of the Post Building in Holborn you can now enjoy views of London any day between 10 AM and dusk. For free … and without having to book.
100 days until the New Year seemed like a good excuse to write another ‘My 22 For 2022‘ update.
It’s going okayish: some of the goals I’ve let go of (writing monthly updates) and some I’ve reached without even trying too hard (reading 12 books I already own).
I’ve been very restless this year, so I’m happy with anything I achieve at this point. Here are some of those I (almost) crossed off.
Farringdon, situated between Holborn and Clerkenwell and the City of London, is a historic area known for the famous Smithfield Market, as well as being the location of many great cafes, restaurants and bars. You might also know it for being home to the super club Fabric, regularly voted among the top clubs in the world.
The new Elizabeth Line station has really opened up this cute neighbourhood to all parts of the capital! So grab a coffee and hit up all the famous historical landmarks and museums, then splurge on some great food and get ready for a night out. So here’s some of the best I’ve seen and Farring’done’.
Staying At Cabin X
I came across Cabin X on Instagram, but this was back when Instagram would target you with actual good things, and it ended up on my to-go list. It was the bathroom photos that made me click and in July I finally got to check it out.
While my previous cabin stays had been in tiny houses, this was a converted shed originally used for children to play in, and it definitely felt more spacious. I was impressed with the setup of the cabin and the woodland setting had me in awe. And obviously, it takes being an architect to come up and execute that amazing bathroom.
You may be familiar with the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo, but a newcomer has arrived on the scene with bigger exhibitions, more to see and do and all set in the beautiful Aichi Expo Memorial Park outside Nagoya. And it’ll be welcoming excited Ghibli fans inside on 1 November 2022.
