UK: Portobello, London

Portobello Road is the famous address of a number of London antique shops, selling everything from quirky rugs to second-hand riches. It’s also notably known for being the setting of the rom-com classic, “Notting Hill” which was mostly filmed along the street. On weekends, when the road is closed and a full-blown market is in place, it can get as mob scenic as the tiangges in Greenhills. But it was far from the usual ruckus when I went with my high school classmate Michael as snow settled big time that day. It was a good walk nonetheless thanks to Portobello’s distinct charm…and to Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant.
