Late Night Adventures in Alexandra Palace

Hey there, my name is Sylvia and I’ve been living in London for 2 years now. I’m originally from Hungary, but I have moved here from the states. I’m a really adventurous person and I love travelling but if I’m not on the road, being out in nature and exploring is one my favourite things to do. In my eyes, leaving behind everything, getting fresh air, clearing my mind and enjoying beautiful sights is a truly amazing experience. The best part is that it’s free and just a foot step away, all I need to do is to make that first step.

I joined Furthermore, a digital product and service design studio in August 2016 as their Apprentice and it is a great opportunity for me to be part of the GoJauntly family which is a mobile app that’s going to launch and take off by the end of this year. Guys, it’s going to be a lot of fun believe me. ;)

With that said I thought I’d share a story about one my favourite walks to Alexandra Palace in London.


It was 3 o’clock in the morning, my housemate and I were struggling to sleep and the Internet was down so instead of sewing her broken clothes, we decided to go for a walk where we could see an incredible view of the city.  She was up for it, so we changed out of our pajamas, grabbed some boots and stepped out the door. It was winter time and freezing outside but this did not stop us. 

In the past, I had walked up to Alexandra Palace when I had felt the need to clear my mind. It’s such a beautiful walk. As you go up the hill, the view of the city slowly reveals itself from behind the trees. When you reach the top of the hill you find yourself beside the beautiful Alexandra Palace. Whether you want stop to enjoy the landscape from the palace or the park  down below, there are plenty of benches to sit down and rest. For those who like to run outside, it’s a perfect opportunity to get away from the noise of the city and challenge yourself with the incline.


That night was a lot of fun and when we got home we told everyone about our mini adventure. Reflecting back I’m now so pleased about the lack of internet access that evening as it encouraged me to experience the real world and the great outdoors instead.  I think we all need more of this.
