Aybige Kerim heading to sun01

Our three years stay in our little kingdom comes to an end and we are heading back to sun, turquoise blue Aegean and Mediterranean waters, fluffy street cats, variety of juicy and tasty fruits and vegetables, amazing smell of the bakeries, adventurous motorcycle rides and Mediterranean style slow living.

There is a long list of the things we won’t miss like rain, unbeatable British summers, health and safety craziness, tea with milk but we gonna miss our home, the pubs, antiques shops and markets, city foxes, first class football, film quality British dramas, the smell of the fireplaces in the middle of the city, Guinness, canal walks, small theatres, delicious Indian food, our friends in London and also in a very special little pub in Edinburgh.

But,

at the end,

the question still is:

What’s the meaning of Stoneheeeeeenge?

Up series01

Up series02

Last two evenings and nights, we were in front of the tv watching during hours and hours 7 DVD’s of a fabulous documentary: Up Series. Even we are living since two years in UK, we never heard about this documentary until reading the post of Joanna Goddard about the last film of the series.

It was the first days of january when we saw the post and very impressed about the idea of the series and same day we bought the box of the six first films and the last one of the series, the 56 Up.

The documentary is about 14 British children from different cities and social circles. The director Michael Apted filmed the first one, Seven Up in 1964 when the children were seven years old and then they decided to keep filming them every seven years. During two evenings and night, we watched how this children growed up, where the life brought them, their happy and sad moments, they angers.

Even watching only the first black and white film where you can see the differences and their points of view, how they are expressing them selves was very, very impressive, but after watching the whole series and when it was the time to watch the last one, 56 Up which is released in 2012, we couldn’t wait to see where they are, how they are when they are 56.

We don’t want to talk more about them and ruin the magic of the documentary but we recommend indeed to everyone to watch this fabulous documentary. It’s just fabulous!

Aybige-Kerim Geffrye Museum01

Farewell to Christmas01

Farewell to Christmas02

Farewell to Christmas03

Today we had a short walk by the Regent’s Canal to the Geffrye Museum to be part of an old British tradition which we learned from the Book of Christmas: burning holly and ivy on Twelfth Night of Christmas to avoid the bad luck.

When we first arrived there, the big garden of the Geffrye Museum was ready for the event. The Twelfth Night cakes and mulled wine on the tables decorated with candles, the place of the fire, the little scene for the band.

When it was getting dark, the garden was packed by people. When the time arrived we ended up by eating Twelfth Night cake, drinking mulled wine and singing christmas carols around the fire all together with the lyrics of the carrols on our hands. Farewell to christmas and another well lived day in our little kingdom.

The Teahouse01

As two people who grown up in Turkey, the tea is a important thing in our daily life. We love the tea and at home, we have always ready a good brewed tea in our teapot. And when the tea jar is less then half full, we immediately visit our tea shop in Covent Garden.

The Tea House at Neal Street no:15, is our favorite tea shop in London. This 30 years old, small, cozy shop has a variety of tea leaves and also any kind of teapots, tea cups and tea accessories.

By the way, after talking about our relationship with the tea, with this magical plant’s leaves, here is a video we like and want to share with you:
