So it’s another of those posts where I try to become at peace with London… or something like that. I’ve become tired with the city I’ve been born and bred in, and now I’m tired of being tired of it. Something has got to change, including my repetitious riddles.
Travel and destinations aren’t always about “I love this” and “I love that” and “Look at this amazing place I’m in”. Sometimes it has a darker side, and sometimes we feel stuck. I’m part of the latter, so before I move on from London (whenever that may be), I want to leave knowing we’ve kissed and made up. We’ve been through a lot, London and I.
So, I’m reminiscing the things I love about London. In my last post, I wrote about (well, mainly posted pictures) spending time in gardens and parks. BBQs, Pimm’s, company, sometimes a cat or two… they make up some of my favourite memories.
This time, it’s views. If there’s one time I melt back into the charm of London, it’s when I’m given a damn good view of it. I can sometimes get a bit jaded and think “Meh, I’ve seen it before”, but there are those moments when the scenery brings up a sense of pride in me. And here are some examples…
There are many, many other views of London, from all sorts of angles and directions. There are quirkier ones than this, which I hope I can share with you in due course. These are just a few that no matter how often I walk them, they do take my breath away.
