My cousin V is a doctor in Australia. When I was there last year, she and her sister L toured me around Melbourne. At that time, she had just purchased her condo unit right smack in the middle of the city! What more can a single and highly-successful woman ask for?! Hmm…a boyfriend, perhaps?! Hahahaha! Nah, I’d say… more time to travel the world! And that’s exactly what V did this month. She took on a vacation from her practice to go around the US and Europe.
From New York, she went to Rome and Paris. Then she hopped on the Eurostar that brought her to London!
After picking her up at King’s Cross Station, we headed to her hotel then out for dinner at Covent Garden. Destination: Shake Shack! I know, she should have tried the one in New York but, as usual, the line was impossible so she decided to skip it.
We spent the night chit-chatting about the most trivial (showbiz gossip) to the most profound (keeping the faith and finding the one). We talked about what it takes to being busy women and how the love aspect seems to always take a step back when one is at the height of her career. We pondered upon self-enrichment and shouting to the universe our heart’s desires.
The next day, we met-up at a quiet Covent and saw pretty things like:
1) This Chanel bus. I’m not so much into luxury brands but I really find Chanel chic.
Then we rode the hop-on, hop-off bus which brought us to London’s iconic places.
1)This is where the palace guards parade every morning.
2) The Buckingham palace gates
5) Taken from the bridge where you can see the Big Ben and the London eye at the other end
10) My friend C a.k.a. Miss Earth (coz she once joined the Miss Earth Beauty pageant) accompanied my cousin the next day as I was out of town. We met-up for dinner and ate at Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant. Another treat from the generous and gorgeous Dra. V!
Cheers to finding one’s bliss,
