I Heart…

People frequently ask me why I chose to move to London and not to a warm, sunny city like Barcelona or ever-exciting New York. I must admit, most of my reasons for choosing London are completely rational:

  1. Spanish is a lovely language. I can say a bit more than “Dos cervezas por favor” and “¿Hola, cómo estás? No hablo Español.” I can get the gist of newspaper articles. But that’s about the long and short of my Spanish knowledge. I could learn, of course, but that brings me to my second reason;
  2. I love my job. With my less-than-conversational Spanish I probably couldn’t get a nice PA job until I drastically improve my skills. And to while away my time working in Starbucks… Enough said, really.
  3. And finally, although I’m not the type to homesick, I quite like the idea that my family and friends in Holland are just a short plane ride away. Can’t do that from the other side of the world, now can you?

Logic aside, there are so many things to love about London. This page is about just that – my favourite places, restaurants, things-to-do or simply a ‘je ne sais quoi’ feeling.

London Skies

“Will you let me romanticise
The beauty in our London Skies
You know the sunlight always shines
Behind the clouds of London Skies”

– Jamie Cullum, Catching Tales, 2005

Listen and see for yourself…
