My next week is going to be quite insane as I am basically spending my days either queuing/attending Cabin Pressure recordings or running from a job interview to a temp job to another job interview and more temp work and then I also have a few movie screenings and the Bafta preview + Q/A for Game of Thrones to cram into my days (my life, it is so hard). Anyway, I was getting pretty stressed about it and what I'd like to do best to clear my head is hike. I am not a sporty person at all but give me a hill or a mountain to climb with the promise of a beautiful view at the top and I am game (must be mountain envy because I am from a country known for being entirely flat XD). Sadly I am no longer living in Australia, New Zealand or Canada, instead I am living in a big city not particularly known for its scenic mountain ranges, but I read somewhere about "Primrose Hill" and figured it'd might be worth checking out. So on Saturday I spent a few hours enjoying the beautiful weather and exploring a part of London I had not been before. I started off in an area nicknamed Little Venice, where an arm of the Grand Union Canal meets Regent's Canal, wandered along Regent's Canal to Primrose Hill and Regent's Park and finally worked my way down to Queen Mary's Gardens. While not exactly comparable to the Blue Mountains or Whistler it was still a very nice walk and of course I took pictures along the way:

Some of the mansions along Regent's Canal? Wow!

Just chillin'

Primrose Hill. Not very high but a bit steep closer towards the top.

The London Eye can be seen in the distance, far, far away.

Evil red eye!

You should come up to the heath, where I live, and I can take you to Parliament Hill, it's even taller than Primrose Hill and you can see SO much of London!

More pretty pictures! Looks like you made the most of the great weather! I've only been to Primrose Hill once before, but the views are nice and it is fun to walk around. Never seen the canals though, they look great!

Glad to hear you have some more interviews lined up as well as some temp stuf. That much take a pressure off a little bit at least!

I've never heard of this place in London before. Looks like a lovely walk.

My uni had so many hills. I miss them now.

and then there's San Francisco...
