Jaunt: a short excursion

I must be suffering from withdrawal. Although it has been less than three weeks since I returned from Brussels and Paris – I was needing another trip – albeit a very brief one. So I am on my third visit to London for an extra long weekend. It has been close to four years since I was last here. No real pressure on what I need to see or do in this trend-setting city.  London, after all, is inexhaustible – one cannot get enough of it.

First stop is the V&A Museum to catch the brilliant Boticelli Reimagined exhibit.

Trendy Shoreditch is in the east end of London which has become a hip hangout with good restaurants, bars and stores. The area has also benefitted from re-purposed uses including a retail “mall” comprised of shipping containers and a former gas station converted into a food “truck” area.
