  Small break by the river
by purplekedi

Favorite thing: You will surely take a walk on the South Bank on the way to London Bridge or H.M.S. after checking what's going on at the Tate Modern. You can't miss the "pocket" with snack stands and small shops on your way, to your right. You can snack on a bagel, have a Nero coffee or shop around at a smaller version of Monsoon (dreamy outfits), accesorize (for bijuterie) etc... You will also find these statues made of steel, to co-memorate the happenings of the WW II. They're modern and kinda cool..

Of course, I'm such a wonderful traveler that I don't remember the name of this spot and never actually paid attention! Anybody who knows; please let me know? Thanks...

Fondest memory: Countless times, I sat by the river with a coffee in my hand, alone or with many of my friends who were so kind to visit me... On happy days, sad days, lonely days, the day that I got promoted, the day that I thought I'll never find a job, an apartment, etc... The river, just has this calming effect, reminding you of life flows just the way the Thames does...
