I like you. I really do.
My London visit and all the things to do in London were an unexpected surprise. After all, I’ve been here before and thought I wouldn’t really be phased by you.
But during my week-long visit to London which led me to deeper corners of this city that I previously hadn’t seen, I discovered there’s more to London then just a big old city.
A visit to London will consist of exploring the breathtaking architecture and landmarks, shopping, great live entertainment and fine dining.
On every corner within the city, there was an opportunity to try succulent cuisines from around the world, and follow that up with an award-winning play at the local theatre. And luckily I had the chance to see one of the comedy shows which sent me into hysterics. This one was called ‘The Play that Goes Wrong,’ which I highly recommend.
There are major landmarks which you must explore, like Big Ben, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Palace of Westminster, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Tate Modern Museum, Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square.
Don’t get overwhelmed by this list. These points of interest are close together and seeing them isn’t going to take up your entire holiday.
I also loved wandering through the Borough Markets. A sea of fresh foods from around the world and locally prepared meals and brewed alcohol stalls which will do wonders to your palette.
Furthermore, London, I would like to pride you on your people. Well-mannered, well-versed and full of life. My kind of people.
When I travel, it’s mostly people that I love meeting. All the untold stories that I desperately want to hear.
And London, you delivered. I stumbled upon incredible people, from my kind Uber drivers, to the memorable mind-provoking conversations with strangers that are now friends.
If you would truly love to experience what London has on offer, you must include a London makeover in your visit. I had the pleasure of working with a local stylist and also getting a new hair-do from Kim Lomax at the ‘Best Voted in London’ award winning The Chapel Place in Islington.
It’s the perfect start to my Best Job On The Planet adventure. Looking fine and feeling fine.
I will miss you London. You left an impression on me.
So much so, that I wouldn’t be opposed to calling you home one day.
(PS. I’m slightly worried that every place I visit, I’ll want to call home.)
