Traveling

London, UK

What can I say about my trip to London?
Well I loved it and I hated it. It’s weird, but it’s true. London can be very overwhelming. It’s a lot of people in such a small town. I wasn’t expecting it to be that crazy. Probably that’s why I didn’t planned ahead every single day of my trip and every single move. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did.
The rain didn’t bother me at all, just embrace the idea of your hair is not going to look perfect all the time and you will be fine. Don’t drink any tap water. Make sure you have fun and enjoy yourself. Take a lot of pictures.
I would definitely recommended to all of my friends. I also want to go back and visit London again.

    1. The type of rain they have in UK is not that bad, it’s just a little bit annoying cause it’s constantly raining even it’s just a little bit. The weather in Portugal it’s just perfect and that’s the type of weather I’m used to 😂
