Andrew Travels London – Colourful Notting Hill – Part 2steemCreated with Sketch.

in #travel5 years ago

The sun came out, I was hungry and so I went out and documented my day in beautiful Notting Hill.

I visited Kitchen & Pantry, a corner café where I bought a mixed berry smoothie and resisted the urge to buy cakes and pastries. I ordered to take away and ended up walking around in the sun with my cold drink.

The colourful houses in this part of London seem to bring out a lot of joy in people. Everyone was taking pictures of them, enjoying food and drinks and having a great time with friends and family. It’s wonderful how in Notting Hill you find million pound homes across the street from council flats. Because of this you get a mix of interesting people from all backgrounds in one area.

The Portobello market is lively on sunny days like this. Food stands have long lines, the fresh fruit and vegetables from the stands shine, people shop for clothing, dogs get taken out for walks, life is great!

The smell of seafood drew me to a fish and chips stand where for 5 GBP I purchased a basic fish and chips portion which included salad, fried peppers and onions, fish and fries. It was delicious!

New stands, shops and restaurants are always being opened in Notting Hill and in the summer you get an international bunch of tourists flocking to try and see everything that the area has to offer. It’s never too full here and spending the whole day out in the neighbourhood can be done comfortably.

That market looks like a place i'd shop at everyday. So many fresh veggies and fruits.

Hey, @vegetarianbaker! You would love the market. They have almost every fruit and/or vegetable you can think of! It's great being able to walk to it almost every day and grab fresh lemons and create lemonade during the summer!

Have you been to London before? When you plan on coming next, do visit the markets! :)

I've never been to London. It's on my to do list.

Great job!
Quite elaborate :)

Thank you, @taraamin77! I'm glad you really like my post!

Have you been to London before?

No. but believe me I will one day! I see all these amazing posts people post here on Steemit, you as well, and all I want to do is just note all the names down and start travelling.

Definitely do note down the places that you find appealing and choose a certain date to come here and explore! You would love London. I've met someone in his 90s who lives here and he told me that he still hasn't gotten bored of this city, despite living here his whole life!

That is amazing! :) And I will :)

My kind of joint, @andrewe. So very colourful and any place that has such a market is a winner for me.

The market is unlike any other! Cheap produce, jolly and nice vendors who serve you, and lots of variety! Whenever I walk down the street, I talk to all the vegetable and fruit vendors because they see me shop there so much! It's so colourful here, you would love it!

Sounds deliciously wonderful...
