IN NOTTING HILL DREAMING

            London, United Kingdom

“Plane landing down in London do not fail to seize the chance to visit ravishingly beautiful Notting Hill” read my travel book and I had to follow the advice. I had already visited the area innumerous times but each time felt like the first; it never failed to astonish me with its cosmopolitan vibe and new cultural happenings.  Located in West London, this upscale district renowned for its cultured character has a lot to flaunt.

“Plane landing down in London, do not fail to seize the chance to visit ravishingly beautiful Notting Hill” read my travel book and I had to follow the advice. I had already visited the area innumerous times but each time felt like the first; it never failed to astonish me with its cosmopolitan vibe and new cultural happenings.  Located in West London, this upscale district renowned for its cultured character has a lot to flaunt.  Its appeal stems from the famous Portobello Market the world’s largest antique market for which thousands (including myself) flock from around the globe, with the terraces of large Victorian townhouses seamlessly framing the event. High-end shopping and restaurants with a twist of alternative culture and art complete the picture for this superb corner of London.

In my perfect outfit for the day; a tweed vintage like floor-sweeping dress with puffed sleeves and buttons I started wandering around, secretly hoping I might run into a star in a travel bookshop just like the movie. A helpless romantic and optimist like myself never ceases to believe in magic and my child-like outlook on life is one of my most cherished attributes; a legacy my family passed down on me. “And above all watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you…” Ronald Dahl’s famous words resounded in my head  leaving me happily grinning.
