Ahoy Kaptens! Today we take you with us on our trip to London – the European capital of cultural diversity! The city combines urban coolness with elegant chic. London is definitely one of the most multifaceted cities in Europe and should definitely be on top of your bucket list.
We took some time off and travelled to London to discover the European metropolis with all its hip districts and cool photo spots - which we will of course share with you!
With us on our trip to London: our new Backpacks - Helsinki, Fyn, Alesund, Lillestrom and Lohja.
FIRST STOP- STROLLING WITH OUR HELSINKI THROUGH THE STREETS OF COVENT GARDEN
Covent Garden – a movielike backdrop! The district in the centre of London, decorated with ornate house facades, is no longer an insider's tip, but should be a Must on your list. Especially away from the hustle and bustle, you will find pretty boutiques and small cafés in hidden alleys.
Our tip: Neal's Yard! The mini quarter with its colourful houses is perfect for taking breather from the turbulent city life. There are also many cool photo spots worth a holiday snapshot.
With us on our tour through the trendy quarter - our new backpack model Helsinki. The Helsinki is an absolute all-rounder! Whether on your way to the office, for your next weekend getaway, or for a shopping tour through the trendy districts, our Helsinki offers a lot of storage space and is also a stylish eye-catcher when strolling through the alleys of London’s coolest districts.
LET'S CONTINUE TO SOUTH KENSINGTON WITH OUR BACKPACK FYN
The elegant quarter on the western edge of London's city centre is one of the hippest spots in the European metropolis. A special royal flair characterises the ambience of this area. Exclusive buildings and chic boutiques reflect the image of the affluent district in London and make it a special photo spot.
One of our favourites: the London Mews. Former stables now capture beautiful small townhouses in various colours – definitely a Must-See.
We dived into the elegant atmosphere of this quarter and admired the impressive buildings with our new Backpack Fyn. A camera, a laptop, a water bottle and many other daily essentials can be stored in it. But our Fyn is not only practical, but also stylish. Thus, this backpack is the perfect companion for a trip to the trendy district of South Kensington!
NEXT STOP - GOING ON A VINTAGE SHOPPING TOUR THROUGH NOTTING HILL WITH OUR ALESUND
Let’s continue to Notting Hill. Notting Hill is one of the most famous districts of London, probably not least thanks to the movie of the same name. Trendy, lively and constantly changing. Whether it's strolling along the Portobello Road with its famous weekly market, discovering hip vintage shops or marvelling at colourful costumes during the annual Notting Hill Carnival and soaking up the positive energy - Notting Hill is another Must on your list!
You should plan a bit more time for your visit, because you will find cool photo spots and pretty cafés around every corner.
Our companion on our vintage shopping tour through Notting Hill was the new backpack model Alesund. Due to its small, handy shape our Alesund is perfect for a trip to the hip quarter of London with its special vintage flair. Coming in the colours All Black and Sandstone, the Alesund can be combined with any outfit - whether chic with a dress or casual to a pair of jeans, our Alesund will definitely attract attention.
LET'S GO FURTHER TO THE WEST END OF LONDON WITH OUT LOHJA
Welcome to the West End of London! There's always something going on here - double-decker buses lined up behind each other, a great variety of theatres and bright neon signs on the world-famous Piccadilly Circus. You cannot escape the hustle and bustle of the West End - here you will feel the pulse of the metropolis London! So, don’t miss out on it on your visit to London.
The new mini Backpack Lohja is the perfect companion on a tour through the pulsating streets of the West End. Our Lohja has the ideal size to explore London's turbulent quarter and in its cool colour 'Rust Red' it even stands out in front of colourful neon signs and will be your It-Piece in the urban jungle.
LAST STOP - DISCOVERING THE CITY OF LONDON WITH OUR LILLESTROM
The journey continues to the old financial district of London. A combination of modern skyscrapers and historic buildings from Victorian times characterise the picture of this particularly diverse area. During the week you can feel the exciting hustle of the stock exchange and around late noon you will meet most of London's bankers in the bars and pubs.
With us on our tour through the energetic streets of the City of London: the backpack Lillestrom. It reflects the unique flair of the historic quarter and is suitable both for the way to the office and for a tour through the surrounding pubs after a long workday, because the Lillestrom can be either styled in an elegant way of dressed down casually.
