columbia road market

Sunday [our last day in London] was definitely one of my favourites. It was market day! First we headed to the Columbia Road market in Shoreditch. It’s mainly a flower and plant market, but there are lots of cute shops and second-hand stores that are part of it as well. I found these amazing chairs [photo 6] that I wanted to buy so bad, but they would have been pretty impossible to bring home. I have a nerdy obsession with maps, and they were basically covered in maps from different parts of London.. how cool is that? My lovely friend [and London hostess] Bev bought some bright orange flowers for her place, and although it was kind of a grey day and drizzly day none of us seemed to really mind.. there was so much to see around the markets, we forgot all about the bad weather.
On a side note, I’m totally excited to be heading to Berlin in about 3 weeks time! Going to do a bit of research for my architectural history thesis and general exploring. And of course lots of photos. : )
