First Day in London: Brick Lane Shopping and Eating

Everyone should fly Virgin Airlines at least once in their lives! On the way to London we were treated to hot chocolate, tea, and red eye masks and socks for cold feet. These are the little things that separates Virgin Airline's economy class from the others. After napping a few hours in a quiet East London neighborhood, I headed out to check out the sights, smells, and shopping on Brick Lane. Transportation was easy and cheap-I rode a bike! This was my first experience riding a bike using a shared bike system and I really enjoyed it until I fell......but I was fine, it was hilarious! I loved that if you use the bike for less than an hour, your rental is free! Here is more info about the bike share system.

Brick Lane is super hipster and I love it! The streets are lined with vintage shops and small boutiques, funky bars, and an open air market with more clothing and food vendors. I plan on returning next Sunday to get the full experience as I only spent an hour or so there this trip.

Here are a few pictures from the day. Time to get ready for tonight. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!






Three amazingly unique tops I bought from a vendor. I won't see these in the US!
