My Adventure in Richmond Park, London | Lost in London

Over the past few months I have asked people to slide into my emails sending me their favourite places in London hoping that when I finally got over here I could go on a whole lost of adventures. 

My idea was that you could introduce me to London. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of emails that I have come my way; So, finally and rather spontaneously, after being in the UK for what has felt like a lot longer than what its actually been, myself and now-friend, N, (who up until that point was more like a stranger) went off to find an adventure.

RECOMMENDED BY: Richmond Park was suggested to me by bloggers,  Laura, Harriet and RosiePlease be sure to check out the blogs of those who recommended Richmond Park to me (they have good taste)!

We had a lovely time meandering the muddy paths of Richmond Park. Obviously, we got lost- multiple times. But, we found ourselves out. London's sunny sky was on full display for most of the day, up until the 'doom and gloom' clouds began to roll in, with rain ultimately coming down.

Richmond Park is one of 8 Royal Parks in London.

I have heard so many complaints about London and its weather in my life time. What? The sky on Saturday started as it would in any summer's day dream! It was a delight. Fine. The weather did take a drastic turn a few hours after, but it was idyllic for the most part! 

A lot of people mentioned the deer in Richmond Park. I have no idea where I was in the Park, but I definitely did not see any deer.
I'm not even going to deny it- I found this leaf beautiful! I think I carried it around for my of the day... or up until I put it down to take a photo of something and then left it behind. I LOVED the colours and the autumnal feel of it!

Richmond Park is also great for Instagram opportunities! I had several cheeky photoshoots along the way in various forms of shrubs and bush. The best part was that no one minded! No one so much as blinked an eyelid at all the posing and twisting that they saw going on- not to mention al the smiling! I had a great time!

Also, I'm publicly declaring autumn as my favourite season. I always considered it to be spring...up until this day. I fell in love with the soft and gentle whistle of the wind and the yellow, green and red colours that started high in the trees and ended on the ground in heaps. 

Now, I'm left with these photos and the mud on my boots as memories of a day well spent!

If you ever found yourself in London, where would you visit first? If you've been to London already, what has been your favourite place to visit?
