Another London ambition fulfilled! The next stop on my London day trip was Old Spitalfields Market. I will admit, this was the first time in the day where I got a little lost. I don’t think I’ve ever walked up and down the same street three or four times in quick succession while holding my iPhone with Google maps open. I found it eventually though.
Since I took so many photos in London on Friday, I decided it was best to split up the posts. First up, Portobello Market.
One of my first posts on this blog was about how much I would love to go to Portobello Road (here) so it was a dream come true!
One of the great things about Manchester at this time of year is the Christmas markets. They are awesome. And now I can go during the day on a weekday and actually be able to walk around without being crushed! Me and the bf went today for the first time this year.
Because who doesn’t need chocolate cake dipped in chocolate?
Actually need both these fox and owl earrings!
These penguins are so friggen cute!
Not only are they ducks, but they are ducks with massive shoes on!
I’m quite proud to say that we lasted about half the holiday eating purely Indian food. By the time Wednesday evening rolled around we gave up and had pizza! Too much of a good thing and all that.
This was our first meal on the first day. It was at a vegetarian restaurant and with some help from the very kind waiter we picked out a variety of dishes which kind of worked out like tapas – Indian style.
They were a mix of savoury and sweet which was a bit of a surprise but very fun! It was a good way to ease our jet-lagged selves in.
On the way to Jaipur we stopped at a restaurant for lunch which had a gift shop attached and was full of tourists. Something I noticed though was that it was just us and the locals in the restaurant.
“The tourists seem to just be buying Pringles and running away!”
They were definitely missing out as I loved this meal. We shared all the dishes again which were saag (potatoes), daal (lentil type sauce) and I forget it’s name but it was vegetables and cheese in a sauce. All picked up with naan bread. Delicious!
Our dessert that evening was yummy! We decided to share some ice cream cake, kulfi (kind of like ice cream which was amazing!) and gulab jamun which is like balls of sponge with syrup.
For lunch my parents unknowingly ordered special dosas (rice pancake with potato filling) not realising how HUGE they would be. Challenge accepted.
Some of my favourite photos from India. Warning: Picture heavy!
