Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

If you're ever in Covent Garden in London, don't forget to stop by this charming shop on the corner near the Theater Royal.  Hope & Greenwood is tiny and adorable and the purveyors of fine confections.  One quiet mid-week afternoon during one of my stays on London when the tourists weren't so heavy I managed to get this shot.

There is great shopping in Covent Garden of course, all manner of things to buy - but besides this delightful shop I'd love to mention Monmouth Coffee a few streets away on... Monmouth street off Seven Points.  No matter the day or time there is a line out the door to sample their delicious coffee -- I used to bring home pounds of it when I could, but I've luckily found a local roaster to sate my coffee needs :)

I have never shared this photo before despite knowing about it for quite sometime and I have to think it's merely an oversight.  I remember when I asked if I could take it of the lady behind the counter.  She was concerned I would "try and make money" off it but I assured her I had no intention of that at all.  Maybe that's why I never shared it - it was taken over a year ago.  Who knows!
