One Year in England! Let's go to London.
That's why we booked a trip the following weekend to London! We were celebrating our one year living in England. It truly has been amazing and we are so grateful for all the people we have met here.
We went on Expedia and did the surprise booking. We picked our location and how many stars we wanted. You get a discounted rate but you have no idea what you are going to get. We got The Grange Fitzrovia. At first we were a little worried with some of the reviews it had but it seemed to have more good reviews than not. So we stuck by our booking.
Friday after work we took the 6:12pm train from Snow Hill to Marylebone Station. Our hotel "Grange Fitzrovia Hotel" was about a 15 minute walk from the station. We were pleased with our hotel upon arrival. Actually, we felt a little under dressed... We checked in and the receptionist was very polite. So far, so good. We went up to our room, by a glass elevator which was quite scary. I'm sure it is 100% safe but it looks crazy.

The bed was a little uncomfortable and they could do with getting new mattresses. Other than that the room was quite lovely. We generally enjoy quiet rooms with free wifi, tea and free toiletries. This hotel had all of these things.
By making easy food at the hotel we were able to save some money, as it is quite expensive to eat out in London!!
Camden Town is super busy. It wasn't very busy last time we went but it was later at night and colder last time.

|Salted Caramel Vegan Milk Shake|
The food was prepared really quickly and it was glorious!
The next day we woke up late and made our way to a vegan ice cream shop called Yorica which had delicious ice cream made with rice milk. We are usually sceptical about rice milk based desserts but these were fantastic. We had cookies and cream and wow butter which was a nut free peanut butter option. Neither of us are allergic to nuts but it tasted great.

We took a lot of photos in the British Museum. Too much to post all of them on the blog so we just posted a few.
Thank you for reading.
