Greenwich Market

A few weeks ago I did a pretty short trip to London. We spent most of the time with family but one day I had the chance to hang around with my one of my friends. Seeing as I have been to all the sights not just once in life and time was pretty tight, I really wanted to have a relaxed fun day away from the busy and crazy city center. My friend lives pretty close to Greenwich so we decided to go to the Greenwich market and just wander around. 
We walked down the river Thames and had a peek inside the beautiful painted hall situated in the Old Royal Naval College. Loads of films were shot in this building. It just got restored and the colours are amazing. After that we passed the Cutty Sark, a big floating boat from 1869, until we eventually reached the Greenwich market. No matter it wasn´t even completely open we spent hours there, having a look at so many nice handmade accessoiries and trinkets but I was mostly impressed by the food market there.
We tried so much stuff: Cheese toasties, bhajis and Spanish churros with caramel sauce. Afterwards we went straight to the pub and in the night we met up with friends from Erasmus and uni time. You can also see my new coat I bought a week before at Boxhangener fleamarket. It´s way too big but I really like it and I am getting used to it from day to day. This was definitely one of my best London trips because we just wandered around and enjoyed the day without any hassle and running around.
