This year as part of Pablo’s birthday gifts, I got him a 2.5 hour tea workshop in London. A friend of mine had been to it and told me it was awesome so I went ahead and booked it. After over a month wait – yes all other the workshops were fully booked – the day of the workshop arrived. I really enjoyed the experience so sharing it with you guys.
A hot summer day in London I was lucky enough to visit the underground world of The Vaults where I attended Sounds and Sorcery, a new immersive music concert experience, inspired by Disney Fantasia. And it was an excellent way to spend the afternoon!
I am a huge fan of Fantasia. I used to watch it over and over when I was a child and I just get so much joy from simply listening to its songs so I was super excited about this experience.
Argentina has shitty beer. At least it did when I left over four years ago, I’m aware it’s got better, but then it was hard to escape Quilmes, Heineken or Stella Artois and only a few craft beer bars where around. Getting to London was a total upgrade. So many options in the bars and pubs, beer brands from all over Europe. But I still had to get to the next beer level, so I discovered craft beer bars, shops and the Bermondsey beer mile, which is essentially a bunch of awesome craft breweries all located within approximately one mile. I’ve written a detailed guide to it here. But those breweries are not open to the public all the time, so how do I get my craft beer fix the rest of the time?
On a certain Sunday I decided to pop over to the Palm Vaults in Hackney. I’ve always wanted to go as it’s a vegan cafe and well, I’m a vegan. But I have to be very honest, it was the rainbow lattes and pink glitter coffees I saw on a Facebook video in my feed that gave me the last push.
So there I was after over an hour commute from Tooting on Mare Street in Hackney. Didn’t look like much from outside. It was a cold Sunday in December so the windows from the cafe where all steamy hence I couldn’t really see inside.
