Whimsical London

To help everyone at Tea “go there,” we make a yearly contribution to each employee for international travel and exploration. Upon their return, our Tea travelers write blog posts to share their adventures with all of us (and the world).

Isabelle, a Technical Designer at Tea, recently returned from a trip to London. She enjoys exploring new destinations, flowers, and  her favorite dish, kale. When she’s not eating kale, she enjoys a pastries.

I have been to London twice before and knew that on my most recent trip that I didn’t want to see sights I have already seen. I also wanted my trip to be less about being a tourist and more about just relaxing and enjoying good food with good company. I found that just taking time to wander and discover a city without any pressure to do anything meant discovering fanciful things that make me smile. Here are a collection of things that delighted me on my trip.

We stumbled upon an art opening in East London one night. There were colorful characters there for sure.

My trip wouldn’t be complete without tea! And believe me, London knows and loves their tea. And, I love my (T)ea too!
