London Lovin’: St Pancras Station

Across the road from King's Cross Platform 9¾, and a Eurostar ride away from Paris! Apparently has "Europe’s longest champagne bar, shops, restaurants and cafès" which baffled me because I didn't notice. Loving the architectural majesty and grandeur of the station. xoxo, Viktoria Jean

London Lovin’: Notting Hill

Autumn leaves crunching beneath my feet, light rain smattering wet droplets on my leather outer. Can you imagine how happy I was to see the 'travel bookstore' with a blue door on Notting Hill?
