Out and About in Kensington
Hello, hello! Follow me along as I stroll around Kensington and also, my 100th post in my blog! I seriously can't believe that is my 100th post. Crazy! As always, I hope you enjoy and I'm so, so thankful for every one of you who has read or visited my blog frequently, it means a lot to me.
Now, back to the post!
On this very grey day, my dad and I found ourselves in the very hectic and crowded National History Museum that I've seen a lot on Instagram. Now, you must know that I'm generally not a big fan of skeletons and all that shiz, but the view I got from the staircase lived up the expectations to the pictures that I saw many times on Instagram. Advice time: go before noon before there a lot of fieldtrips and kids during/after lunchtime!
We got to see some realistic looking dinosaurs, which I thought was super duper cool! Despite not liking skeletons and all that shiz, I'm quite fond of dinosaurs, and I have no idea why. :P
I'm no Harry Potter fan (SHOCKER!), but I really felt as if I was in Hogwarts whilst I was chilling by the museum! Such a pretty location.

Next on the list, we walked for a couple of minutes and came across this cute as hell neighborhood called Kensington Gore that was so photogenic and oh so, gorgeous! Then on we were finally facing the Royal Albert Hall, and I've got to say, I'm so darn impressed by the architecture there. Doesn't hurt that this was one of the things Queen Victoria built for her Albert after his death.
Got to sit by the music hall for a bit as my legs were killing me by the time we arrived at the hall. Alas, we got to sit by the most beautiful buildings on Earth, so, I didn't mind that at all. Honestly could picture myself living by Kensington because I'm in love with the neighborhood!
Albert Memorial. This like Royal Albert Hall was built for Prince Albert by Queen Victoria after his death. Goes to show how in love she was with him, and he to her.
Our last stop before heading to our hotel and chill for a bit was none other than the Round Pond! I went to Kensington Palace the day before and since we were right in Kensington Gardens when we went to the Albert Memorial, I just had to go back to the pond! It was quite a walk, but so worth it. Sadly, five minutes after we sat by the pond, it started raining so we had to go back and find refuge inside the palace for a while. Ha, that's London life for ya!
See you guys soon! Once again, thank you very much for sticking by me for the past nine months (how has it been this long since I first blogged?!), and well, let's hope for more in the future! I appreciate every single one of you. ❤︎
