London Flashback: I Heart Hackney

Because I didn't have the time until now. And because when visiting London, our most favorite thing was returning to our old hood, if only for the week. We stayed in a loft conversion (entry with stairs!!!) just two blocks up from our old flat on Regent's Canal. And it was awesome. We booked through… Continue reading London Flashback: I Heart Hackney
