Matcha made in heaven! Tombo, London

img_3722
Tombo is a Japanese Cafe & Matcha Bar in Southwest London, just a stone’s throw away from the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert. I came across it by sheer accident one time I was looking for ‘a sushi place’ near me on the Foursquare app. It was rated high and it was close, so without another thought my friend and I headed its way.

For this, and many other reasons, I was absolutely ecstatic that I was boarding a plane that would take me on what was to be an unforgettable adventure.

Andalucian adventures {Part 3}: Seville

Visiting Andalucia has been on my bucket list for ages, and seeing the Alhambra palace in GranadaΒ and the Cathedral of Cordoba was frankly a dream come true. However, Vera and I were just getting started with our trip, and we were very keen to finally explore Seville. We had whizzed through the streets on our way to the train station and back, and we hadn’t had a chance to stop and gape at the jaw-dropping beauty lurking around every corner.
