A Mews in Kensington

Not being able to travel freely means that I’m well aware of where I was a year ago and where I can’t be today. Thankfully I don’t get those “engaging” or “enraging” social media reminders that rub it in.

About a year ago I was in London decompressing from ten days in Italy.

Not wanting to accidentally harm myself with a rapid return to normal, I felt like five days of flaneuring in London would add a layer of protection.

After a leisurely breakfast at 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel on my third day in town, I laced up my shoes for some exploration. In short order, I found what I was looking for. It was an arched and ivied entrance to a London mews.

The autumnal greenery and the weathered stone offered up something intriguing to me.

The gateway was better than the contents but no invitation to explore should ever be refused.
