Whether it was the reflection of my inner state or a newly developed passion for blue, this deep navy shade leaves me wishing for more, and so are the floppy hats since wearing the black version all day long on my last vacation in London.
Ever since i visited London for the first time, I’ve promised myself to go back every year for at least one week.
DEFINITELY, London is my favorite city!
I completely fell in love with the city and I know for sure that I’m coming back there! I would even consider living there.
Just a little ‘seasonal’ note to show you how beautiful the in-between seasons can be the world’s greenest capital. Despite the cold, this time of year is my favorite to be in London. On our way to Westminster Abbey on a chilly morning after we saw the famous Changing of the Guards in front of Buckingham Palace, we took a refreshing walk in St’ James’s Park and just couldn’t help ourselves, instantly becoming five years old feeding the ducks and squirrels, the most likely mammals for visitors to see. Nevertheless, their athletic antics and begging for food are a constant source of entertainment to visitors.
St James’s Park is at the heart of ceremonial London. It is the setting for spectacular pageants, like Trooping the Colour (in 2014, it will be held on Saturday,14 June), and is surrounded by some of the country’s most famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, St James’s Palace and Westminster Abbey.
St James’s Park, the first of The Royal Parks to be opened to the public, provides habitats for a variety of different species of birds.The park welcomes over 5.5 million visitors every year and is one of the most visited parks in Europe. This heavy use inevitably has an impact on the wildlife in the area, yet it can be surprising to some how much can live and grow alongside humans.
One of the key habitats in St James’s Park is the lake. It is home to a wide range of bird life (including 15 different species of waterfowl) and has nesting sites on Duck Island and West Island.
The Mallard is probably the most well known wild duck on the lake in St James’s Park and can be seen all year. The male has a dark green head and white collar around the neck and the females are a speckled brown overall with an orange bill. Their natural diet is mainly aquatic vegetation.
There are plenty of birds other than pelicans and ducks that live or feed on the Lake, including the Moorhen and the Coot Look out too for the Great-crested Grebe and the Little Grebe – one of the shyer birds that breeds here despite the bustle of city life.
Living near Duck Island are St James’s Park’s famous resident pelicans. Pelicans were first introduced into St James’s Park in 1664 as a gift from the Russian Ambassador. Regular visitors can see the pelicans basking on their favorite rocks and getting fed fresh fish between 2:30 pm and 3:00 pm every day.
There are currently six pelicans in the park: 5 Eastern White Pelicans and 1 South American White Pelican which is distinguished by different coloring and a crest on its bill.

If u are in London, you must take a break and enjoy the city’s delightful parks!
Whatever the seasons, whenever the days, where ever you are, make the most of it ))
