5 Quirky Reasons Why I Love London

I know a few people who don’t like visiting London for a number of reasons, mainly because of how over-crowded it can be and how fast-paced life is. However, I believe that they just haven’t found the right side of the city yet; it has so much to offer, and I can guarantee it has something for everyone.

The Best Way to See Hyde Park

London is one of the places that I hold dearly to my heart, along with New York. I always say I’m a city gal, and whatever city I am in is my favourite – but truthfully I can’t actually choose!

Shaun in the City Challenge!

Back in February/ March time last year one of my best friends relocated down to Cambridge to work, so naturally I saw it as an opportunity to explore a new UK city! I’ve heard a lot of people say that we go on holiday and travel abroad but haven’t even seen close to 20% of the country that we live in. That’s probably true but my point is that when I’m 60 I don’t want to be going on 12 hour plane journeys or 18 hour bus rides…I’ll explore the UK when I’m old!
