Before this walk, I didn’t think much of Wapping, in the borough of Tower Hamlets. Moreover, I had never thought of walking from there all the way to Canary Wharf either. One of my really good friends lives near Wapping Woods and since she joined me on this walk she was pretty happy to have found a beautiful new walk to do with her dog and baby. This walk was extremely cold due to the fact that Storm Emma hit nearly a few days after. We felt pretty adventurous, and cold, once we finished.

Why Am I Walking All Over London?
It’s official, we are collaborating with 111 Places in covering their book “33 Walks in London that You Shouldn’t Miss” : ) Nearly two months ago I was in Waterstones in Hampstead and came across this really cool book in their London section. After taking a look at some of the pages, I knew that I had to have it. I’ve decided to do all of these walks for the rest of 2018, which will allow me to explore London (my new home), stay active, take some photos for the ‘gram and even bond with some of my friends. I’m looking forward to sharing my adventure on my blog and my Instagram. To follow me around London, make sure to follow me on Instagram and the hashtag I created for this project #evydoes33walks
