It can be tough appreciating London with all the traffic, pollution, rude people, high rents and awful experiences via public transport, so I have been on a personal mission to find the little things that allow me to appreciate this city. I mean, I've lived here all my life, there must be something keeping me here...
Don't get me wrong, there are lots of beautiful countries and cities that I have fallen in love with and that are superior to London in many ways: San Francisco's got that lovely laid back vibe, Gaborone is beautiful and has gorgeous weather, Berlin is always alive and keeps you entertained... even up the road in Scotland! When I went to Edinburgh I tasted the BEST water EVER! Yes, water, Yes, the best. It is surely the Elixir of the Gods running from their taps! No lie! Delicious!
Yet I cannot deny that London has firmly taken a place in my heart and always will.
So in order to remind my soul of the beauties that London still beholds, I have been posting "Why I love London" pictures on my Instagram.
I tell you what, it helps! The more I look, the more gems I find and the more I begin to fall back in love with London.
Any time you feel like it's all gone to pot and that you can't wait to pack your bags and emigrate, have a gander at my Instagram pics...perhaps, just perhaps it'll make you feel just a little bit better :)
Or try it yourself, you never know what you may discover!
