My family knows it, my friends know it, and you probably know it, too. I love food. That’s why I thought it would be a good idea to share my favourite places to eat in London. Sadly, I’m terrible at food photography, so don’t expect artistic pictures of burgers here. I’m too busy eating to instagram it most of the time. Anyway, let’s get on with where to eat in London!

Can I tell you a little secret? The tour was free!

My first stop in Namibia was Orange River, the longest river in South Africa. It flows all the way from the Drakensberg mountains in Lesotho, through South Africa into Namibia. After arriving to the Felix Unite rest camp in Namibia, we had lunch and packed our stuff for the canoe trip.

We left around 3 o’clock in the afternoon to canoe the first 6 kilometres of around 30 k in total. It was a fun but difficult canoe trip.

Recently I was on a long-haul flight with a neighbour from hell. Let me sketch the situation for you. I was parked on an aisle seat in a middle row of three seats. It was 6 o’clock in the afternoon and we’d be on the plane for eight hours. My neighbours were two Asian guys. I greeted them, settled in, and started a movie. Turns out that it was an airplane neighbour from hell.
