The Travelling Pixie in London
Chilling before School Starts
Now I am faced with a beautiful Friday afternoon with nothing to do, and staying in my small London bedroom didn’t seem like a good option to go for. So I got dressed, left home with my kindle and started wandering around for a place to sit and read for the rest of the afternoon. Before I knew it, I’ve arrived Oxford Street and decided to go to the Starbucks I used to go to last year. But only after 3 months and one summer holiday, everything seemed to have changed. The Starbucks I used to go to was not there anymore, so I walked towards New Oxford Street, only to find the 2-storey Starbucks outside Tottenham Court Road Station to be very crowded. A few stores down New Oxford Street, I came across Joe & The Juice and decided to go in for one of their smoothies. I’ve always loved the Iron Man smoothie, a blend of strawberry, kiwi and apple juice, yumyum! This Joe & The Juice store, without the usual crowd of customers, provides a relaxing ambience for one who wishes to find somewhere for a quiet afternoon. So I sat there with my kindle and my favourite smoothie for a couple of hours of quiet relaxation, and enjoyed the afternoon to myself amidst the vibrant Central London.
