Last February, me and a few friends were able to pursue our plan to tour some distinguished places here in United Kingdom. And guess where we went? *drum roll please* The Stonehenge!
I know this appears to be just a bunch of rocks scattered on the field, but the feeling was different when I saw it face to face. “Surreal”, as my friend Harry took the exact word right out of my tongue. You know the feeling when something you just watch in documentaries and films before or you just see when flipping through a magazine is now in front of you? Stonehenge gave me that feeling. I am no National Geographic geek, but I suddenly had an interest on what was Stonehenge all about.
The heritage site built back around 3000 BC to 2000 BC, had a lot of theories why is was put up. Some believed that it was used for rituals of pre-historic people and some said it was used to observe astronomical behavior. I even heard some people in the tour saying it was built by the aliens! Lol! Well, whatever reason it may be that Stonehenge was built, they sure had people all over the world talking. Here are some of the photos of me and my friends cam whoring around the area!
I originally planned to take outfit shots in this exquisite place but I backed out coz’ the stones might took the limelight from my clothes. Talk about Kenn being afraid of boulders! Haha! Stonehenge was actually the second stop of our tour. We first went to Salisbury and roamed around the great Cathedral they were famous for.
I was always fascinated with old and ancient churches when I was back home but this Cathedral was indeed distinctive from the rest I’ve seen before. Architecture was different compared from what we have in the Philippines. Too bad there were scaffolding on one part of the structure when we visited it.
Every part of the cathedral was made in detail. I can’s stop looking at those statues.
If you think the outside of the building is nice, you would be mesmerized more of its interiors. The place was huge with a lot of pillars, carvings and ancient finds inside.
The last stop of the day was in Bath. I ran out of words when I saw how picturesque the place is. I kept on pointing and shooting my camera on all angles. It seemed like the place was enormous location for a photo shoot! It was indeed beautiful! We explored the popular Roman Bath and a few things around the area. I also had my outfit shots taken around the town which you will see on my next blog post.
And that was it guys! I’m looking forward into posting more photo diaries in the future. What I wore for the tour is in my next post so stay tuned for that! Have an awesome weekend guys!
Ever since I arrived here in London, my thoughts about the city seemed to be on the flat note-“disheartening and monotonous”. I think its because I got here during winter time wherein everything is down right depressing. But I have to say, my notion on the metropolis is slowly changing. London is indeed endearing! Well, it all started on this Sunday morning when me and my flatmates woke up to the bright sun rays revealing itself on our windowpanes. It was a signal from the heavens that it will be a terrific day for us.
We decided to tour the beautiful city of London that afternoon. It was a perfect mixture of the cold weather and the warm feeling coming from the sun. My friends and I immediately hopped on to the bus hoping to see beyond what London has to offer. We were like toddlers all giddy to see the scenery around the place.
First on the list was the famous St. James Park adjacent to the Buckingham Palace. If you would recall I did my first outfit shot in London on the same area. It had a different vibe from what I felt last time. It was more fascinating than before. Just seeing the wildlife around, the few flowers starting to bloom in the fields, children happily playing around and people taking pictures made it livelier.
We went to Buckingham Place afterwards. The place was full of people, both locals and tourists, trying to get a souvenir photo in the royal place. I did not let the opportunity pass and snapped a few pictures for an outfit shot. Blame me and my passion for fashion. :)
The gates around the palace were the ideal backdrop for the outfit shot. I felt regal posing in front of those gates making it more cool and interesting. There were some moments where I found shooting on the area funny because a lot of people were also doing their own creative shots. I don’t know if they were bloggers as well but I was trying my best not to be the photobomb on their pictures. Haha!

This royal guard made my OOTD look bland. Kudos to the stylist of the royal guards (If they have any?) The clean lines and silhouette of their uniform is a standout! :)
After cam whoring in the Buckingham Palace, we then headed to Westminster Abbey. There were more people on this area as we expected. It was like the whole on London was just walking around the vicinity (exaggerated me!) Haha! We dropped by Big Ben for a bit of picture talking and then decided to leave right away.
No UK experience will be complete without seeing “Big Ben” himself. Situated in Central London, the clock tower is well-known to tourists around the world.
Captured by the camera lens being all “turista” mode in London. Lol! :)
Sorry for the blurred photo, this was only taken using a camera phone. Good thing it still showed the beauty of the London Eye at night. :) It was the February and the theme of their lights is about love.
Then we went to see the Tower Bridge of London. They say it is more enchanting and magnificent at night, so we followed their advice. And they were completely right, we were blown away by both the view and the freezing cold breeze by the River Thames. Haha! Lol!
Our last stop is pretty well known to everyone especially to kids and kids at heart. It’s in the lyrics of a famous nursery rhyme. Yes, you are right. London Bridge it is! It is not as you would expect it to be but just to be where it stands before it fell gives me goosebumps.
And that is the end of our London mini tour. Hope you had the good taste of London through my blog! Till the next blog post kiddos! :)
