I’ve been living in London for almost a year and have a love-hate relationship with this city. I can see that I need to make an effort to step out of the rat race and tip the scales in the direction of ‘love my city’. So for 2016 I’ve promised myself 2 touristy things a month, thats 24 touristy things a year. I’m already behind as January was a crazy months for me. I’ll be flexible about when I do things, but the goal is 24 touristy outings in London during 2016.
My wish list contains things like:
- Tower of London
- Buckingham Palace when the state rooms are open (Aug/Sept)
- St Paul’s Cathedral
- Greenwich and the Royal Observatory
- See a West End show (a famous one)
- Tate Modern
- National Gallery
- Museums (incl, British & Natural History)
- Yoga class at the top of The Shard
There is plenty more and I’m hoping to do some random things too. You know, go to a new part of town and do what the locals are doing. A few weeks ago my brother and I ended up in Ilford and went to an Turkish restaurant, it was very traditional and the food was so good that it took me back to Istanbul. London is a really good place to travel the world via visiting restaurants!
