London; I'm Coming, Love

Savul Londra, Ben Geliyorum


Hooray! I'm super excited because if all goes well I'm flying to London-the most inspirational city ever- tomorrow morning! With all the dark places my mind had been wandering lately, I can say I really needed this break. I'll be there for 6 days, so I'll see you next week! Last time I visited it was for business, and although I had the privilege of my British collegue taking me to all the awesome design shops, I had too little time and was so overwhelmed by all the amazing things that I never got to take photos or make notes of the places I went to. Also I was dumb enough to miscalculate the currency and thought everything was double the actual price. Hopefully this time it will be different and I will be back with some blogging material. To my luck Design*Sponge just posted an amazing London guide! I already have lists of the main gigs and the well-known stores but if you have any additional suggestions of shops/interesting places/great cheap food, do share tonight:)

Yaşasın! Heyecandan kıpır kıpırım çünkü bir aksilik çıkmazsa yarın Londra'ya uçuyorum! Son zamanlarda zihnim karanlık yerlerde fazla oyalanmaktaydı, doğrusu ilhama, ufuğumun açılmasına, biraz da havalanmaya çok ihtiyacım vardı. 6 gün orada olacağım, yani sizlerle haftaya görüşeceğiz. Geçen gidişim bir iş ziyaretiydi, İngiliz iş arkadaşım tarafından en iyi tasarım/dekorasyon mağazalarına götürülme ayrıcalığına sahip olduğum halde zamansızlık ve etraftaki herşeyin dayanılmaz cazibesinin yarattığı şok yüzünden gördüklerimi doğru düzgün belgeleyememiştim. Üstelik pound'u da gerçek fiyatının bir hayli üstünde zannetme enayiliğim yüzünden elim cebime pek gidememişti. Umarım bu sefer daha farklı olur ve bol bol blog malzemesi ile dönebilirim. Şansıma Design*Sponge tasarımseverler için çok iyi bir Londra rehberi hazırlamış. Gidilecek genel turistik yerlerin ve bilindik mağazaların listesini yaptım, ama kıyıda köşede keşfettiğiniz güzel dükkanlar/ilginç yerler/ucuz güzel yemek yenecek yerler varsa gün doğmadan evvel paylaşınız lütfen :)

How wonderful! Sounds like you need a real vacation, I'm so happy for you! I'm sorry I haven't got any tips; I haven't been to London after I grew up, actually... but I'm sure Design Sponge's list is great. Have a relaxing and fun trip - and safe flight(s)!
Hugs,
Trudi

Calanon said...

Spitalfields benim de en sevdigim pazarlardan biridir. Yemekle de aran iyi ise Borough Market'e gitmeni tavsiye ederim. Sehirdeki en lezzetli Chorizo sandvic ve Raclette peyniri orada yiyebilirsin. Ayrica Camden'in yangindan sonraki halini bilmiyorum ama irmak kenarindan gecen guzel bir yerdir, gorulmeye deger.
Iyi yolculuklar.

That is such a lovely picture of London. I may have to save it.

jade_ashley said...

where to start? i live in london, stumbled across your blog! i recommend the museums! south kensington is the best stretch. v and A, (there is a hat exhibiton at the moment, it looks amazing) natural history and science! spitalfields is nice. there is the most amazing shop ever near there! full of dolls, and fairys and im sure mushrooms! id recommend covent garden, its always lovely there. oxford street for your main shops, including john lewis habedashery. libertys has a good hab aswell, umm carnaby street is fun! vintage shops are great by spitalfields/brick lane way aswell. theres too many side streets and places to explore! im still finding them!

Eee nasıl geçti, yorumları alalım? :)

alis said...

Hanako - Thank you!

Trudi- Thanks, funny I kind of had trouble with the flights actually, even managed to get into a fender bender with the city bus while I'm there! Lol, bad luck with transportation I guess.

Delfina - Orada internet ulaşımım yoktu ama bu sefer fotoğraf çekebildim, bloga koyacağım inşallah:)

uyuz cadı-Günde 12 saat yürüdüm herhalde bütün blog community'sinin yerine gezmişimdir :)

Calanon-Borough market'a geçen sefer de gidip aşık olmuştum, bu sefer annemi de götürdüm beraber büyülendik, çatlayana kadar yedik, yiyemediklerimizi yanımıza aldık. Spitalfields'a da uğradık, nedense orada da yemek standlarının başında bulduk kendimizi :)

eski dost-Gökyüzünde de havalar esprin gibi soğuk olduğu için mecburen uçakla gittim zaten :P

denizero- Teşekkürler, yazacağım inşallah :)

pinkstilettos- I'm back and I'm already jealous of everyone else who gets to go now.

corine-Next time definitely go with him, London is the decor-lovers' heaven.

owl-Teşekkür ederim, vallahi çok iyi geldi yeni bir insan oldum adeta :)

vogued out-Thank you so much :)

coco- You're so lucky to be a Brit, I'm so jealous :P

jade ashley-Awww you are so lucky! Even though I had made a great trip plan I had to compromise a little, I definitely have to go back again :)

Lolla- I just came back:) I intend to write a few words about it in a post :)

Jen- Yes I noticed, next time I plan a trip I'm gonna let you know first :) Btw I guess you are hooked like me, I already want to go again!

Electro Geisha- London is like traveling heroin, I can't stop thinking about when I can go back. Keep an eye on plane ticket prices, I got to go because they were 1/4 of the usual price!

Fashion Garden - thanks :)

C.T. - Thank you, what a nice surprise:)

Moda Cadısı- Aaah ah bilirsin işte, güzel şeyler cenneti :) Yazacağım ayrıca.
