While studying abroad, I have had the pleasure of enjoying a visit from one of my best friends, who also happens to be my number one travel buddy. She had been to London before coming to visit me but hadn’t been to the area I was living in. Camden is arguably one of the best places in London, so she was in for a treat. I am a tad biased considering I’ve lived here for almost four months, but there’s nothing to not love in Camden.

Me and My Best Friend Who Visited LondonMe and my best friend who came to visit me in London.

When my friend arrived, the first thing I did was take her to the Camden Market. With endless food options including Crosstown Doughnuts, Buzzfeed’s named #1 UK dessert to try before you die, and countless shops that you never know what you’ll find in, she was sure to have an incredible experience. We had stellar grilled cheeses for lunch. Then we wandered in and out of the shops. She bought a couple of rings, and I had to restrain myself because I’ve bought too many things from there already.

For those that have read my blog biography on CAPA’s website, I have exciting news; the anticipation is finally over! The coffee-fanatic within me has been having the time of her life trying lattes’ from Goldhawk Road to Central London.  In this blog post, I present to you a list of London’s top ten (and more) lattes I have been indulging in over my stay.

10. Starbucks

I am a creature of habit, as some may say.  Although I have a Starbucks right down the street from my apartment at home, I thought it was only fitting to at least get one drink in London from my favorite chain.  Although my love for Starbucks is never-ending, on my list of London’s lattes I have to rate it for my unoriginality at number 10.

Good news, though, this was a one time experience.  In my travels to Paris I was able to stay away from Starbucks!
