London… I can feel this undescribable energy that fills my heart and lift my spirits, the best way to start the week is with a mini break alongside the Thames on a surprisingly quiet Monday morning.
There is always a bright side to everything and today I was even able to embraced the brighter side of a boring doctor’s appointment. London Bridge hospital is my spot for visiting the doctor and I have to admit it, I LOVE IT! no, not going to the doctor but to take a moment to walk on the Bankside of the river, enjoying all the narrow pedestrian routes full of history and the best combination of old, traditional and new, all mixed together to offer that unique London feeling that makes us adore this city. Today my special route from London Bridge to Blackfriars gave me just what I needed to kickstart my week.
It is always nice to see the city outside the normal rush hour. On a daily basis I see London with a sea of people walking as quick as they can, minding their own business and unaware of any beauty around them…yeah.. that is me, walking from A to B with my headphones on, dreaming about things and trying not to get too stress with work before I even step into the building and although it was Monday’s peak hour, today was very different. I stopped to take in the ordinary things I tend to take for granted, today I paid attention to my beautiful surroundings, I allowed myself to feel the soft wind of this crisp winter morning, letting the city whispering into my ear the urban secrets of this ‘concrete jungle’. London transported me for a moment to a life where every brick, every person, every moment meant something and I found myself wishing that I could have more moments like this and lets face it, this is the UK, every corner is a ‘Cosy Corner’ it shouldn’t be difficult.
From arches of London Bridge to the ruins to the Winchester Palace and the amazing traditional pub, The Anchor, there are just too many locations to count. The Shakespeare Globe and Tate Modern connected to St Pauls’s cathedral by the Millennium Bridge, I couldn’t ask for a more scenic view.
Arriving to my final destination, I can’t stop thinking how just a little break can do so much good for the soul in our daily lives and here I am… with my office in front of me, such a beautiful building, a great vibe inside and now let the week begin…
