I have never been to the UK. One thing on my bucket list was to go to Monaco for the Grand Prix but scheduling and $$$ was a factor. As a substitue, we ended up getting tickets to the Grand Prix in Silverstone, UK. We used the Fourth of July holiday to take the vacation while I was working and Bear was transitioning from his old job to his new one.
We stayed in Shepard’s Bush and went to Paris for a day. It was an exciting time since the UK had made it to the top something for World Cup. We got to experience London and Paris during the last final games of the World Cup. The energy was UNREAL.
The best part of the trip was the F1 race of course. My future ex-husband Lewis Hamilton did not win the race in his home country but he made it to 2nd on the podium after a bump right after takeoff.
I can’t wait to go to all the F1 races in the future!!!
As for London, I’m okay with never coming back. It was just another version of New York with mediocre food.
My first visit to this hotel was back in 2005. I was taken to The Polo Lounge for lunch one day and from that moment, my life had changed. I loved the feeling of arriving into a grand entrance. Not that I’m a fan of pink, but the hotel is pink with accents that remind me of South of France or some chic European setting.
Every corner of the hotel is exquisite and the service is impeccable. I giggle and tingle every time I get a change to visit.
Only thing I’d add to this establishment is that I’d wish they served my vodka.
The most amazing structures are in France and the emotions I felt are so unspeakable. I am so happy to have been a part of this trip and to see and understand a different culture unknown to me has opened my eyes! Every moment of the trip I wanted to experience something new, my mind was expanding and I realized how much I had been living in a bubble. There is nothing greater than traveling and exploring. Each second was memorable and everlasting.
I didn’t take a photo of the hip-sack (fanny pack) cause my room is a mess, but it is so fucking awesome. Usually I don’t like their stuff cause it has the Herschel logo everywhere, but this one didn’t and the fabric was in velvet, so it looked designer-ish and fashionable. Def. something I strive for, to be chic and put together.
I love that it has a bunch of compartments for cards and such so I don’t have to carry a wallet with it. 🙂
I wanted to take a carry on only so I can travel easily but guess I’ll have to figure out another way to take everything I need. 🙁
It’s so hard to travel to a place I’ve never been. I’ve been given some pointers but I can’t be too sure about the weather which is really irritating.
I know it’ll be cold as fuck but maybe not that cold? I have been to NY when it was freezing. I want to take my leather trench but my wool trench may be better, I want to actually take both but it takes up too much space.
