Yesterday was our 5th anniversary and usually we prefer spending our anniversary in a romantic way. However this time we decided to do it differently. The stress of setting up a house has taken a toll on us, so we decided to do something that we love i.e exploring different parts of London , especially the markets. This time we decided to skip the market and explore one of the coolest parts of London known as Shoreditch.
I work in Shoreditch and while walking to and from the station, I encounter the wall art which is very famous in this area. I always used to get intrigued and mesmerised by the art, felt like stopping on the road and look at the art till I was satisfied. I was always eager to find out the meaning behind each piece, the artist's motivation and the story. However the busy life and the need to reach work on time stopped me from doing so. Hence Dinesh and I decided to go to Shoreditch and explore the inner nooks and creaks, discover the wall art and spend time absorbing everything that the artist had to say.
There are many organised walks in the area that takes you through all the wall arts but we decided against it as we wanted to get drawn to the art and the streets on our own and walk in a trance enjoying each scenery. It was a perfect anniversary!
Personally, I was left a bit unsatisfied as I wanted to spend more time so we have decided to return to Shoreditch for more. Meanwhile I will devour the sights on my way to work.
Enjoy the pictures.
