Fish and Whole Foods

I was used to the weather here in the UK until the wind decided to go crazy and try to blow me off my feet and smack me in the face with a million leaves. 

It reminded me of that one Winnie the Pooh, where Piglet gets blown away by these insanely strong winds and then Pooh is extremely unhelpful per usual. All Pooh does is mix up the words 'Wednesday' and 'windy' to create 'winds-day'....way to go Pooh. 

Honestly thats probably where my love of puns comes from. 

Today was not Wednesday, but it was certainly a windy day. I almost got blown off a bridge into the Thames while taking these lovely photos. 



 

I love aquariums because I absolutely love fish. They're really cool to watch and unlike all other animals, they do not make me sneeze. So to celebrate the first week of Spring Break I went on a little excursion to the London Aquarium. Which was full of small children and tourists but still a really good time. 


Jellyfish are basically living lava lamps. I love how everyone just stares at them completely mesmerized. 


Having the fish swim around a fake skeleton of a giant fish is a bit macabre if you ask me. But it did add a certain ambiance. 

Male seahorses get pregnant instead of females, and that's reason enough to love them forever.  


After all the horror stories I heard about Piranha as a child I expected them to look a lot scarier and have murder in their eyes but they just looked like little cutie pie losers. 


I forgot that trick to tell the difference between an alligator and a crocodile by looking at their teeth. I feel like I failed my childhood hero Steve Irwin :( 




I also visited my gluten free haven in London: Whole Foods!! 


I can finally eat pancakes!!! Plus Matzo crackers to get into the spirit of the holidays. 



Finished off my trip with a visit to Chipotle. After months of really bland food the amazing beautiful flavors of Chipotle were a literal heaven. It was truly a special moment in my life that I will remember forever. I meant to take a picture of it but I was so excited to eat it that I totally forgot.
