Learning to Love London

London is awesome. That may seem obvious to you, but I’ve lived here for the best part of six years. And sometimes, the minute you start to call a place ‘home’ it’s in danger of starting to feel a bit too familiar and flat; it’s all about the hour long commutes, your local supermarket, the […]
