Back in London - More of the City and its Boroughs

London Skyline - View from Primrose HillI went back to London for work. I made sure that I was going to be in London and try to see London the way locals do. So for two weeks, I made time to see the city after office hours and during the weekend. It was a lot of effort but it was rewarding.

Seeing London how the locals see it made me like the city even more. Bonus was seeing my childhood friends M and J once again.

Life is a beach - My unforgettable trip to Mykonos

Mykonos - Little Venice harbor bw Mykonos is like Santorini's younger and hipper sibling. Whatever Mykonos lacks in sunset views it makes up for its beaches and the party atmosphere to lure the monied and the beautiful.

The trip to the island of Delos to get a dose of archeology and history was a bonus!

Life is a Beach - My memorable trip to Santorini

Santorini - Fira St John Theologian morning view bwSantorini for me was blue skies, island landscape, white on white houses, turquoise water and the sunshine.

After this trip, Santorini is just pure magical beauty where time stands still.

Pinoy in Greece - My unforgettable travels to Athens

Athens - Acropolis bwI had been told before that skip Athens or give it only a day when traveling to Greece.

Mijo and I were skeptical about this suggestion and we wanted to give Athens a chance. We were rewarded by our decision and the longer we stayed in the city the more we loved it.

Back in London - My unforgettable visits to the city, Stonehenge and Wimbledon

London - Parliament Building Thames bwLondon was the first city I visited in Europe. That was sixteen years ago. I went back to London, this time with Mijo.

They say love is better the second time around. I'd like to say my trip to London was like that. Mijo loved it too. Bonus points because I saw one of my good childhood friends after many years of not seeing each other.
