Hi lovelies! I know I promised you this post a week ago, so I finally got some time to edit the pictures I took in my short trip to London. And yeah, the title might seem a bit too unrealistic, I probably won’t actually move to the UK any time soon, but I’d be damned if I wouldn’t love to.
I was impressed by this beautiful city and its amazing architecture, but also by the British people and their accent (you know, I’m a sucker for British accent, I absolutely love it). London is the first major European capital I’ve ever been to, and I loved everything about it.
I think what I liked the most is the cultural diversity, you can see a lot of different people that speak different languages and belong to different cultures, leading different lifestyles. I was also fascinated by the fashion sense that a lot of people seem to have. The streetstyle scene of London is beyond expectations, I spotted so many awesome outfits and styles, so many well-dressed people. I can only imagine what happens during Fashion Week 🙂
Why I would love to live here? Well, for multiple reasons. I know it sounds cheesy, but I felt like that is the place where all your dreams can come true, the place where you can just be yourself, without the fear of being judged or hurt for your choices. But then again, that’s just something I felt during the 5 days I’ve been there. I can’t make big statements about it, but I can definitely share with you my excitement and happiness.
I loved every minute of my trip (even if it was for business purposes, not a city-break), so I’m grateful and I honestly can’t wait to visit London again, because there’s just so much more to see.
I spent a lot of time at the office, but I also got the chance to eat dinner in some amazing places, visit some of the main touristic attractions and make some shopping. So I can’t complain 🙂
I has the most amazing time at Skygarden London, a restaurant located on top of a 35 floor high building. As you may imagine, I got to see London from a whole new perspective. The food, the company, the view… everything was just perfect.
I explored many stores from Camden Market and Oxford Street, I visited the Big Ben, the London Eye, London Bridge (where all the cool action movies place their heroes – remember James Bond, Mission Impossible, etc?), China Town. We had a lot more on our list, but didn’t get enough time to visit all of them.
As for the shopping part, I didn’t get a lot of new things, but I think I did some pretty good deals. I bought some clothes from Primark, some make-up and beauty products from Superdrug and Boots, some books from an antique shop. Basically, you can find anything you want in London, regardless of your budget or preferences. I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to find a vintage shop, because I really wanted a unique printed silk shirt, but maybe next time.
The only crazy thing about London is the traffic… it was really hard to get used to their driving habits. And it’s super crowded all the time. I guess that can get exhausting at a certain point. But otherwise, I think it’s an amazing city and I can definitely understand why so many people I know decided to move here and never come back.
Realistically speaking, moving to the UK is not something that I plan to do right now. The cost of living in London is really high, you need a very well-paid job to survive there. Plus, I have other plans in Cluj, which I can call “home” now. My career, the blog, everything are going well at the moment. But you know the saying… never say never!
YOUR TURN: Have you ever visited London? Do you live there, or did it ever cross your mind that you could actually move there? Or what are your thoughts about this city?
