"Mind the Gap!" London by sabsi

London Travel Guide: 25,575 reviews and 58,298 photos


Following an old tradition I have been thinking what London is for me... ?!?!

Oh well in the 1990s when I went there about once a year London was for me ....

.... shoe and clothes shopping .... New Year's eve chaos and bomb alerts .... cold nights everywhere I went "to bed" .... walking in the rain and sleeping in parks .... aching feet and "postcard sights" ...

Now that I finally went back to London without a big ambition to go shopping I saw new bits of London and even old bits I'd never seen before. I went on the London Eye and was scared of heights like NEVER before, I found a personal tour guide in Tate Modern, a great VT south bank guide and I finally went to see a play at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre!

Enjoy this page. There even will be some travelogues soon ... I couldn't stop taking pictures now that I have finally seen sunny London...


Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great shopping, many things to do, gorgeous buildings
  • Cons:London is too expensive if you are on a tight budget!
  • In a nutshell:An amazing city. Wish I could go more often to see more!
