It’s been a year this month, since I started my blog. This time last year I started my journey in Thailand and now I thought it would be cool to share my first time in the city of London:
- Trying not to get lost on the tube is an adventure in itself. I felt stuck in a time-lapse and thank God I was with people who knew their way around or else I would probably still be stuck there today.
- The variety of food! OMG. Try not to get fat. There is every cuisine and nationality of food available. I met more Italians in the city centre than Italy itself and stuffed my face with cannoli’s.
- You will pay more for things in central London. Fact.
- Didn’t bother taking a car into the centre as the amount of transport available was overwhelming for me. I loved the fact I could hop on and off a bus or take the tube. Bicycles are available to rent on the streets too, if you feeling like you should work that massive jacket potato off.
- The vibe. I tell you. It’s amazing! I am actually at a loss for words to even begin to describe it.
- If you’re heading to Harrods, and you’ve never been before… brace yourself. Firstly, I felt like a homeless person walking in there dressed in below casual clothing, couldn’t afford a cupcake in that place, yet the amount of people walking out with Prada, Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton and every other international luxury fashion brand was…f!#$%? insane. To put it lightly. It’s like Canal Walk and the V&A Waterfront combined, with steroids. My favourite floor was the 6th floor, toy section and then of course the gadget section. The very expensive gadget section. They even have a millionaire’s collectables section.
- The history of this city intrigues me and I hope others appreciate it like I do as there’s so much beauty in the details.
- The variety of different cultures in one hub blew my mind! I met people from all over! And it’s like that everywhere in the UK.
Ok, enough talking! Here are the pics: [Click any image below and view the gallery]
So London isn’t only about football and shitty weather…there’s so much to see and do in this city! I try visit as often as I can and always feel blessed to be part of this ‘world’.
