AU CAFE



One of the things I enjoy the most here in London, is going to some of the many lovely cafés the city has to offer. When you have good friends like Toni, it doesn't seem hard to make a morning pass with the help from two french toasts in Soho and some sunshine.

I'm going to be spending most of my summer here in London, but have in June managed to tick three more English towns off the map, Brighton (see the photo diary here), Seasalter and Cornwall. All helping me piece together what England is and I've come across some incredibly lovely people on my way. This Sunday, I was running towards Bodmin Parkway station in order to reach the 1 o'clock train towards London Paddington. Don't hold your breath, I missed it.. After spending an hour in the sunshine on a little station in Cornwall surrounded by (beautiful) nature, I jumped on the next train to find one seat free despite having no reservation. The girl sitting next to it apologized for her stuff taking up so much space, she was on her way to spend a month in Sardinia whereafter she would spend two weeks driving across Italy with her boyfriend. We instantly clicked and she soon knew about my passions and heartaches and vice versa.

I just love how summer makes our paths cross in these unconventional ways; she was leaving England whilst I was exploring it. My four and something hours in the train was suddenly long at all. To mess up the timeline of this story - sorry guys - on my way to Cornwall, I met this lovely American historian, who gave me the most amazing smoothie recipe. Bonus! Now see, if I had not talked to either of them, I'd be a friend and a crazy good smoothie recipe poorer. It's always worth saying hi!
