We've arrived from a mini-break in London last week... Although the weather wasn't as gracious as we'd hoped for ( rain and thunder in July, anyone? ), London is always an inspiration with its elegant architecture, beautiful shops and museums.

Passionate about books, one of our favourite shops in The Big Smoke is definitely Daunt Books in Marylebone High Street.
A true treasure trove, besides the wonderful travel dedicated books, this Edwardian bookshop is a delight to the sight. Beautifully decorated with teal painted walls, vintage wallpaper, huge skylights, bright green lighting fixtures, and long oak galleries and staircases, Daunt has the old english ambiance down to a T.
Sprawled along three storeys - basement, ground floor, and galleries - the book selection is vast and conveniently organized by geography, so you can easily find not only travel books but also novels and other works regarding your desired region.
Besides the colourful display of books, you can also attend evening talks by writers.
