Today was a  perfect, sunny day in our little kingdom. After a nice breakfast at home we walked to Southbank for a special car boot sale: Classic Car Boot Sale.

It was a very special car boot sale because all sellers came there with their vintage cars and motorcycles, even the food vans were vintage style. It was a real heaven for vintage lovers, classic car and motorcycle fans and there was also some little treats for foodies. We tried lobster rolls of Bob’s Lobster which they were serving from a vintage VW van and it was just “delicious”.

After the car boot sale we walked through Gerrard Street and filled our stomacs with chinese food. Then a little grocery shopping in our favorite Turkish supermarket and finally washing down the chinese food we ate, in our pub with few pints.

Now it’s time for some cups of good tea with homemade peanut butter cookies and enjoy British crime dramas!

Today was another sunny “end of summer day” in our little kingdom and was a perfect reason to have a walk through Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Westminister, then to the Borough Market by the riverside.

There was the Real Food Market in Southbank. Queen’s Walk was surprisingly uncrowded. Even the Founders Arms in Blackfriars was half empty and we enjoyed our cidres there on the riverside under the sun. Then we headed to the Borough Market for a yummy duck sandwich.

Afternoon, we went to our first “afternoon tea” in London. In Turkey we call the afternoon tea “five o’clock tea”, that’s why we reserved our table for five o’clock in Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon at Fortnum&Mason.

We tried two of the three afternoon tea options, the traditional and the savoury ones. We were happy to combine both and to have the chance of trying different tastes. Because of not writing a afternoon tea “quality” critic here, as a couple who has a good tea and patisserie culture, we can just say that it was nice to live the traditional English afternoon tea experience in a place like Fortnum&Mason but that’s it.
