London was such an amazing first stop on our European adventure. My 10 friends and I stayed in a lovely 3 story Air B&B apartment in the suburb of Islington, which was perfect due to the abundance of cute cafes and little boutiques (plus we were right next door to Aesop- their lip balm saved my dry lips!). We used our apartment as our base to explore London via double decker red buses and the tube. Some highlights from the first few days include seeing all the famous landmarks, fresh berries everywhere and of course shopping at Oxford Circus. There were all sorts of amazing fresh food and green juices via my new loves Pret a Manger- plus they had the best porridge ever (in my opinion anyway. Please open in Sydney!). Another highlight was the huge Topshop where I ate lunch and froyo and shopped up a storm! One thing I did discover was a lack of good coffee- that is until I stumbled across a little Australian cafe where I was majorly excited to order a flat white!
