Illy in Wonderland

 

And finally… here we are.

After a never-ending waiting list – we have been waiting a couple of months to get in! – we are here with a skyrocketing enthusiasm.

My ex colleagues Jessica and Francesca and I decided to give ourselves a treat, the Mad Hatter afternoon tea at the Sanderson Hotel .

Are you ready to follow me and the White Rabbit?

Bring together two friends who, due to a relocation, haven’t seen each other lately – but each and every time they do, it’s party! – put them in a welcoming city with a rare sunshine which makes it even more beautiful and you will have the perfect weekend.

I’ve finally decided to visit Emy, a precious friend with whom I shared almost everything for a year, house included. Now she lives in Dublin, a city that was on my “compulsory places to visit” list since too long.

They say that London is a crossroad and that’s it’s something normal to see people leaving in here.
It’s quite impossible to get bored in this hectic mish-mash of languages, ideologies, ethnic groups and habits, but it’s quite difficult to spend here an entire life.

            ICE SKATING:

Choosing an iceskating ring in London can be hard as since November it seemed like you could find one of them in every corner… I really wanted to go to the Somerset House’ one but unfortunately we were not able to find a single ticket… never mind! My friends and I had a wonderful afternoon at the Natural History Museum ring sponsored by Swarovski.
It was great fun even though I do believe 15 quids for an overcrowded 50 minutes round it’s a bit too much… Anyway we were absolutely amazing… none of us felt down!  😀
