I was thinking about writing a post about London, but I was also thinking about what kind of new information I could provide in connection with the city, when you can find a London's guide on every travel blog.
I knew I had to show this place to everyone, no matter if they've been there or not, but I also knew I didn't want to post the same thoguhts everyone else does. Therefore, I decided to share with you my first impressions of the city, my favourite snapshots I took so long ago, and some hidden corners of the place.
I've been to London several times, and always loved it! My last time there was about 5 years ago, but I hope to return soon. It's not a secret, London is not my favourite city, but England in definitely a favourite country of mine. :)
I liked how "international" the whole city was, and how many cultures mixed in there - but this is also a reason why I wasn't so fond of London. When I'm travelling, I like to experience a nation's own culture and soak it all up, but I couldn't do that here. Good thing is, it's possible all around England, and this city is just az exception.
It's also full of history, which I truly admire! It was so much more different from the history I experience in the middle of Europe, and I liked that!
Everytime I travelled to the UK, it was spring, and I remember very well seeing my favourite flower, the red tulip, all around the place! It says a lot about both the country and its capital how many wonderful parks they have, where people go out and take a walk, have a picnic, or have their lunch. Oh, and those adorable squirrels!
I loved wandering its beautiful streets, admiring its great architecture. While Madame Tussauds was a memorable experience, seeing the city from top of the London Eye was breathtaking, and my favourite things to do were exploring the Tower and our visit to the Emirates Stadium!
I also found my favourite monument in London: the monument to the Women of World War II.
How do you feel about London?
