We landed in London Heathrow and spent the next hour and a half on the Piccadilly line to get to Delfina’s house in Highbury & Islington. Although exhausted from our 5am start, we managed to hold a conversation with an elderly Australian couple for a whole 9 stops. I learnt that they had recently bought a house in Richmond, swapped summers between the UK and Australia, and loved my ignorance regarding illogical Australian phrases like “How you going?”. We finally got to Delfina’s, showered, and swiftly made our way to a nearby cafe called Fink’s Salt & Sweet which is everything I need in a cafe, complete with Victorian packaging vibes. The weather was cool compared to Berlin and we felt like walking, so we went towards the canal via Clissold Park. The best part was the deer, and the goats were pretty cute. There was also a greenhouse with exotic butterflies in a geodesic dome but it was closed that one day we were there. Always nice to have animals…
