I didn’t really plan to post anything like this, but I was going through some photos albums and I found a picture of London (from when I went to the Warner Brothers Studios, which is amazing btw). The last time I went to London was the end of Summer last year to visit a ‘friend’.
I’m not writing what happened back then, but seeing the photo and remembering London made me realise how much I miss it.
London, if you somehow don’t already know, is the capital city of England. England is normally stereotyped to be posh and snobby, but trust me; it really isn’t. Of course in comparison our accents can sound quite sophisticated, but we really are regular people. Yes, we do like tea. Yes we’re allowed to drink at 18. No we don’t all care and obsess over the Queen.
Anyway, the thing about London that makes it so great is the diversity. There really are people from all walks of life. It’s not scabby, it’s actually rather pleasant. There are places like the Olympic Park, Madame Tussauds, 221B Baker Street etc. When I went up there I did things like puzzle rooms, zombie paint balling and an outdoor cinema. They even have a large store named ‘Forbidden Planet’ which I’ve heard has plenty of anime/ manga/ comics for you to spend all of your money on. My point is, whether you go on a 4 day vacation there or decide to live there, London will never bore you. Sure, it’s expensive to live there; but you don’t necessarily have to live in South Kensington (but if you go to Imperial College you will). The point is you don’t need some fancy house, because you most likely won’t be spending a lot of your time there. Not to mention it’s easy enough to get on a plane and just leave.
I may adore London more than the average Joe because I live in a very poor countryside area. But in the future, I do wish to go to University and live there (or abroad). Whether it’s a concert, scaling a building or going to a Comic-con, there will always be something for you to do, and something new for you to see. Not to mention the city is very beautiful and good enough for you to take plenty of pictures for your Instagram. So in conclusion, I suggest you add London to your bucket list; if it’s not there already.
