Spring is official here and I could not be more excited. I'm completely over the long winter, short days and shiver-inducing weather. April heralds the arrival of spring and the end of hypernation, and it gives us the promise of long days full of sunshine(as much sunshine we can have in Landan). Is finally time to put our sunglasses on, grab our favorite frap and enjoy our city. Even though London has the reputation of being dull, as soon as the sun is out it transform to a place of bliss with endless things to do from morning to night.
Highlights this months includes a cocktail cruise, enormous amount of caffeine at the London Coffee festival, allow your self to get lost in the many food markets and explore food from all over the world.
London Coffee Festival.
Even though British people are slightly obsessed with tea, we definitely need a shot or two well on Mondays three shots of caffeine. So a festival that celebrates the reason (coffee) we get out of our beds in the morning is definitely a must.
Sip on Margaritas whilst cruising down the river on a two-and-a-half hour trip. There will be an abundance of alcohol which is absolutely perfect for borderline alcoholics like me or for people who like to have only few, and also plenty of cheeses from Neil’s Yard.
