London Part A: the Un-gorilla part

Thursday, September 30, 2010


You guys, London completely stole my heart, I wasn't prepared for that! We had the best time. Plus, it was ridiculously refreshing to hear English everywhere and know what the heck was going on around me for once :)

-We stayed in Fulham
-We ate fish and chips, Indian food, pasties, bananas (aahaha), thai, and had a traditional tea experience
-We rode on the back of a bike thing - in a cart!
-Got to do some dancing ;)
-Infiltrated the Maddox Club - funny story!
-Paid a lot for cabs, oops
-Shopped...a lot. 
-Ate the best cupcakes at Hummingbird Cafe
-Shopped around Portobello Market in Knotting Hill
-I did not like Oxford St. one bit - Primark was batsh&% crazy.
-We had our hair done (as finding a good stylist in Switz is nearly impossible) and we loved it!

...and so much more. yet, I still have a huge list for the next time I return
Oh, and of course ran around in a Gorilla suit...those pics coming soon =)

Links & Things/Swiss Sundays...

Friday, September 24, 2010


I'm all packed and ready to visit London for my first time! I've written down all of your suggestions (huge thanks) and will report back on Tuesday!  The Great Gorilla Run is on Sunday...we'll see how that goes =) Maybe I'll be back with a gorilla picture or 2...or maybe I should be asking how much monies you'd pay to see them ;)
Ok, now I just have to get on the airplane...fun fact - I'm terrified of them, my stomach and heart already feel tight :(
But anyway, here's a 'swiss sunday-but-on-friday' picture that I had to take when I saw this scooter in Zurich the other day - I'd love to see who is driving that around!

*I like the internets*
And way special thanks' to
Bella Gets Real
Selma, Crazy Little World of Mine
Cocktails & Orgies

for the awesome blog awards while I was away =) Thanks!
