London Series: Year 2 (2009)

The year I took my best friend to Portugal, my brother came to London and we visited André in Madeira! 2009 was a memorable one.

2009 started in a party mood having my work Christmas party a little out of season. We went out to the enjoy the London park life in Hendon and Hampstead Heath and strolled in central London.

February was eventful with drinks at work, a lot of snow, Valentine’s day, my boyfriend’s birthday in Southend-on-Sea, Carnival at Guanabara and some London shots.

In March we went to central London, walked through Epping forest, fed squirrels in Hyde Park, got drunk at Guanabara and watched stand up comedy in Portuguese in Brixton.

April was super special as I took my best friend to Portugal. We had the best time!

In May we visited Little Venice and Cambridge.

June saw my brother in London, I had a great time on my Birthday and we went to Portugal to celebrate our anniversary.

July was fun, I went to the pub and to the roller disco with the work lot.

August was sunny and wet and we enjoyed it at the park.

September was the month we visited André in Madeira and had a blast.

In October we were tanned and it was time for a “bad taste” house party at Filipa’s and to make sushi at home.

November was another sushi at home month, we went to Camden and watched more Portuguese stand up comedy in London.

December is the month for all the Christmas parties. In 2009 we spent Christmas in Portugal again.

Another great year! Loved you loads 2009. Hope you all enjoyed all the silly selfies. Brace yourselves for more from 2010 coming soon.

London Series: Year 1 (2008)

This year in March is my 10 year anniversary of moving to London! Can’t even believe it has been this long. To celebrate I will be creating a “London Series”. I am sharing the highlights of each year in pictures.

On the 4th of March 2008 I moved to London with my boyfriend. We had no job and no bed to sleep in but we didn’t give up!

In March we had a couple of new homes after sleeping on the floor for a week at my auntie’s place. First one was in Kilburn and the second one in Willesden Green.

Settled down in our new place, April was a month to explore Brighton and London.

In May we visited Windsor, had the crazy idea of going to France for lunch, got a tan in Hyde Park and spent a weekend in Southampton!

In June the Euro was on so we watched a fair bit of football and celebrated Portugal day at the park eating sardines.

In July we moved to Hendon, went on a day trip to Winchester where we met Tochas (a famous comedian in Portugal) and enjoyed another Summer day at the park.

In August we didn’t do much.

September was a great month. We went back to Portugal for the first time to spend time with family and friends.

In London we were tourists again and partied hard.

October was another busy month. I organised my best friend’s birthday, visited Oxford, went out bowling with friends from my new job, went to Southfields to spend time with André, went out for drinks and it snowed!

In November we went to a Karaoke place with the Portuguese group and I went bowling again with the work lot.

December was a busy month with all the festivities.

And we went back to Portugal for Christmas and NYE.

This was 2008 in pictures. It was a very special year. I really enjoyed this trip down memory lane and I am looking forward to going back to 2009.
