"Tourist Traps"

This weekend I visited London, spent most of my time in the upcoming area's like Shoreditch, Brick lane, Sevendials to name a few. Had a great breakfast in the Albion on Boundry Street, a splendid pizza at Pizza East on Portobello Road, it's worth the long walk from Notting Hill Station. Popped my eyes out at The Vintage Showroom and RRL, you can find the originals at The Vintage Showroom and the copy's at RRL. Even the guy I spoke at RRL worked before at The Vintage Showroom. Visited the first Pop-Up Mall in Shoreditch, all the stores and restaurants are located in sea containers, enjoy some frozen yoghurt on one of the pick-nick tables. Visit Brick Lane on Sunday next to vintage shops you can smell and taste all the flavors of the world, as the street is packed with food stands. It's hard not to do anything touristic in London, so even I had a High Tea in the Orangery of Kensington Palace, and took some pictures of the Big Ben and Horse guards.
