After a hot and sunny two weeks in Mauritius, I’m now back to the cold streets of London Town, and of course Gifville. I’m now getting acclimatised to life in the UK. Its very cold though.
It’s one thing to travel for business, but this man (Jeff Santos, a graphic designer and serial traveller from London working with Hostelworld) doesn’t let work get in the way of lots of travelling.
In London, well, the whole country, temperatures these past couple of weeks have been ranging in the high 20-early 30s (deg. Celsius). It’s just been wall-to-wall sunshine, with nary a drop of rain. The chatter about dried-out reservoirs, hosepipe bans (and yes, THAT summer back in 1976) started up as soon as the heatwave did. Now everyone is begging it to rain like it’s doing in the London GIF above. Mmmm… maybe wait until October, my lovelies.
Yesterday was the hottest day of 2018 so far, with temps of 30+ degrees Celsius predicted for London/the South-East this Wednesday or Thursday. It’s roasting in London, how do you deal with the heat? – Choose your weapon…
Today as a treat and a shot of inspiration, I visited the Design Museum, off Kensington High Street. One of London’s newest museums, the DM showcases examples of everyday design throughout the last century or so, from men’s shavers to graphic design. It’s a small and quiet museum, but very fascinating if you have an interest in design at all.
