A Day Out To Kingston Upon Thames

Wednesday, 19 November 2014


















It's been ages since Emil and I went on a roadtrip together because of work and uni commitments etc. However, we both had a free day on Sunday and decided to visit Kingston Upon Thames. It's only about 40 minutes away from my house and I used to go there quite a lot with my parents, but we haven't been in years, so I thought it would be the perfect place to visit as it wasn't too far away. We parked just outside of Kingston and walked along the Thames, which was lovely, although I imagine it would be a lot nicer to do in the summer as it was a rather grey day. We walked around a few of the shops and then went for lunch in yet another cute, hipster - type cafe. My obsession with these kind of cafes is still going strong! We had the most amazing sausage and onion chutney sandwiches and also tried a melon, spinach, kale and apple smoothie, which was interesting! There were some really cute Christmas markets in the square which were lovely to walk around and the food smelt delicious! As it got darker, the little streets became alight with fairy lights and Christmas decorations, which was so pretty to see. I had such a fun day, it was so nice to get out of the house and have a day where I didn't have to worry about anything.
