London once more!

Since I left England after my ten month exchange I missed the UK so much! All the people and also London.
I've spent nearly every second weekend in London meeting up with friends and exploring all the nice its of this cool city!
So now I had the chance to go back to this cool place again for a week!

First, after arriving in Luton on Monday, I went back to Huntingdon to see my hostfamily. It was so nice to see them again and spend some time with them! We cooked dinner together, talked a lot, I played with their new very cute puppy and of course we watched the Bakeoff!
I also met with my friend John who visited me once in Switzerland, with whom I ate lunch and took a lovely walk. And I also saw my neighbours again which was so cool! We had so much to talk about!

On Thursday I went to London again. We've booked an Airbnb apartment with my mum and I went to get the keys at eleven in the morning. Then I was to meet my mum at Luton airport and I wanted to pick her up because the trip from Luton to Pancras can be quite complicated if you've never done it before (I even had problems on Monday and I've been there a couple times..!)
Well.. The fight had a two hour delay and I first walked to the airport from the train station (which usually you're not meant to o: )  and then watched a movie..

On Friday my hostpartents came to London to visit us and we had a lovely lunch at the Dishoom. Later we walked quite a way and visited the British Library.

Saturday two friends who are on a four week exchange in the UK came to London so we could spend some time together.
We walked all the way from Victoria to the Southbank so they could see Westminster and the London Eye :)
In the evening, after dinner, I went to do some Lightpainting with my mum. It's a photography technique, for those who don't know, it's when you paint with some source of light in a long exposure shot so the camera captures every light that enters the camera and you can create forms and lines and capture movement.

This morning me and my mum finally had the time to sleep a litte longer than usual. We ate a lovely breakfast, went to Spitalfields Market, bought some weird paintings and clothes and then visited the Pavillon at the Serpentine in Hyde Park. The weather was so nice all morning and early afternoon, but then suddenly it started raining (so very British ^^)
The Serpentine pavillon was really worth a visit! It's such a cool building!

It was such a cool time here in London!
