BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir London

 Dear Diary,

It`s been exactly one week since  I came back to London and it couldn't have been more fabulous!
You can officially call me `London Girl`!
Here I feel free... That says it all.

Though I`ve been living in London for over 2 years, I still love playing tourism!
One of the places I wanted to go to since year1 here in LDN was BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, also known as Neasden Temple. It is a Hindu temple in the London borough of Brent in northwest London.
The Mandir was cited in Guinness World Records 2000 as follows: The biggest Hindu Temple outside India.  It was build by Pramukh Swami, a 92-year old Indian sodhu (holy man).

It`s really an outstanding building that gives you the impression you`d travelled miles away, to a different country and culture, to witness such an impressive structure! For example to India, lol!
Unfortunately, didn`t have a look at the interior... I will do so as soon as possible. But, you are not allowed to carry either your bag or camera/phone with you...No way of sharing anyways!

It`s a big world we live in indeed; go explore it, folks!
Till next time!
Kiss kiss-hug hug,
Litsiana K.

Happy 2016/ Bittersweet symphony

Dear Diary,

HAPPY 2016!

A new year has been delivered.
A new year full of lots of new things...
Keep the good stuff from the previous one and throw away whatever you didn`t like.

I adore Christmas holidays!
Christmas is all about showing love and being with people you care !
Holidays are a form of escapism from the mundane life! 
Also, holidays are a good excuse to stuff your tummy with a lot of delicious food!

I spent Christmas in London!
I had good company and a full schedule to follow...
Here are some of the exciting things I did.

After a lot of years, I finally decorated a real xmas tree! Isn`t it the cutest lil tree you`ve ever seen?
Love at first sight!

Winter views!

Everything happens for a reason...
Everyone that`s been in your life has been there for a reason; to teach you, to love you, or to experience life with you...
That`s why we have memories and photographs.
They say people come and go like the seasons. So, be as much prepared as possible. But, let no one come to you without leaving happier. Spread love and be kind wherever you go coz the right ones will always stay!

Bedtime callin`!
Kiss kiss,
Litsiana K.
