We LOVE traveling and exploring new places! It’s one of our favorite “little things” to do in life. Every part of it is so much fun… from the planning of what to pack… to deciding on what places we will stop and see… to anticipating what interesting foods we will get to try and sharing new experiences with our favorite people in the world! We even have a new tradition we couldn’t wait to share… taking our little nesting dolls along for our adventures!
Recently Megan, one of our Product Developers, headed on a long holiday weekend to London. She just loved our new lucky little token nesting dolls so much, she decided to carry them along for the ride!
Growing up she had absolutely loved the Flat Stanley tradition, always bringing along a little token to capture fun moments and special memories of her travels. The nesting dolls seemed like the perfect traveling companions for this fun adventure!
She nicknamed them Chelsea and Carrington after two of our other Product Developers… the English names seemed perfect for this trip across the pond!
Their first stop in London town was a Silent Disco at the Natural History Museum. They listened to all the tunes, sang their hearts out, and danced the night away!
In the morning, they hit the streets early and explored the city in their favorite mode… by way of a double decker bus! They left from Piccadilly Circus, soaking in all the sights from the top level of the bus and learned tons and TONS of new and fascinating facts about all the stops along the way!
After the tour, they headed to Notting Hill to brunch at the charming and oh so eclectic Electric Diner.
After brunch they stumbled upon the amazing Portobello Market. They spent the afternoon antiquing the day away, searching for vintage treasures and inspiration!
From the Market, they continued their shopping spree, spending hours drooling over all the things and exploring the caverns of Liberty London
They had to stop for Steak Frites at Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecote – it’s literally the only thing on the menu!
Then they brunched on Lebanese delicacies at Comptoir Libanais.
They took in all of the fancy frocks, fabrics, and youth quake fashion and prints that they could feast their eyes on at the Victoria and Albert Museum for the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams and Mary Quaint exhibit.
They explored the Natural History Museum to see Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon art installation
We had to stop at Harrod’s for all the dreamy flowers, desserts, cheese, treasures and things!
Next up on this busy day was Buckingham palace for all the royal gossip and champagne!
We enjoyed an overly fancy dinner through rose colored glasses at The infamous Sketch.
The next day, we had Waffles for breakfast on the way to the changing of the guards at Wellington Barracks
We HAD to stop at Selfridges and Fortum and Mason for ALL the sauces and things to fill our picnic hamper full to the brim!
We stopped to feed the parrots apples in Kensington Gardens and walked around Diana Memorial and Statue de Peter Pan.
Here we are with a little rest & rosé at Serpentine Bar and Kitchen
Dishoom Carnaby has the BEST Indian food that’s not in India!
Tower of London to see all the jewels!
We took a scenic ferry ride in the bar car around the Left Bank
