On the second-to-last day that Sara was visiting, we decided to spend the day in London playing tourist.
We didn’t really know what we wanted to do, so as per a recommendation from a friend, we went to Camdentown to try out a restaurant called Rossopomodoro. Since Sara and I both lived in Italy for a year, we’re tough critics when it comes to Italian food. But we both ordered pizzas and when they arrived at our table, we knew we were in for a treat.
They were some seriously delish pizzas. I definitely recommend it if you’re around Camden, and turns out they’re worldwide too!
After lunch and a stroll around Camden Market, we took the tube to London Bridge in search of something to do.
We found a walkway right on the river that led us from London Bridge to Tower Bridge.
It was a nice way to get from point A to point B (or bridge A to bridge B). Once we got to Tower Bridge, we realized that we didn’t have much time until we were meeting my friend Stef at the Victoria tube station. So instead of taking the tube to Victoria like normal people would, we decided to try out the Boris bikes– even though we had no idea where we were going.
It was an interesting experience.
By the time we reached Victoria station, we were already 20 minutes late, were sweaty and extremely parched, and couldn’t even find a docking station to leave our bikes. We probably won’t be hiring them out again any time soon.
At least we had a nice little dinner ahead of us!
Stefanie’s co-workers recommended Thomas Cubitt for our dinner and drinks meet up. The place was beautiful and full of people happy to be done with work for the day. And we were able to sit right by the open front doors.
Sara and I ended up just getting a Pimms Cup (a must-have drink when you’re in England), and Stefanie got a burger that she said was really good.
It was so nice to see Stef and catch up on life back in New York.
