Just as in the 90’s British Romantic Comedy ‘Notting Hill’. It was a great day spent exploring famous Notting Hill, Portobello Road and the sights around.

The visit to ‘Lisboa’ one of the oldest Portuguese grocery shop selling Portuguese Cod – Bacalhau, Octopus, Cheese, Sausage, Ham, Deserts, a variety of Regional Wines and much more. It’s delicatessen, a haunt of the rich and famous and Holland Park residents, was particularly enchanting.

Later, savoured some authentic Portuguese cuisine at nearby ‘Sporting Restaurant and Tapas’ a very lively party jaunt dedicated to all the fans of Sporting Clube de Portugal. The staff ever so very warm and hospitable, something the Portuguese are known for.

The day ended with a visit to High street Kensington where one can feel the buzz of high fashion, sophistication, glamour and affluence. Another great day experiencing new things and making new friends. It’s been a learning curve all along. These most vibrant and happiest memories will be always cherished.
