“Dublin by birth, London by choice”, that is me. I moved to this city over 25 years ago, and simply love it. “A man bored of London is bored of life” and never has a truer word been spoken. London for me is the one true “world city”, and is without question the worlds capital.
Now I do have to add that I have been very lucky in my life, I have travelled the world, 89 countries thus far, not yet all the world’s great cities, but far more than most. Equally although I have been to many cities I did not always get to explore them as fully as I may have wanted to, or that they deserves to be, and I am certainly not saying that other cities do not have their own positives, even Paris, but for me London has this unique way of encompassing all the rest within this one city and that is just one thing that elevates it above the rest.
London as a city does have its faults, but even they, for me, just add to the character of the place. Yes the London underground can be a nightmare, at times, but that’s what you get when you have the biggest system running through the biggest city. Yes London’s crime can be quite scary, however that’s what you get from politicians with no balls, no principals. And finally yes London can be quite a lonely place, especially when you first arrive, but that is down to you to rectify, if you get out there, there is something for everyone, and that is the real beauty of this superb city.
On these places I have created my individual view of London. I live London, live in it and love it, and while I am sure you may not agree with all my views and selections, I hope you can get something from them. I have tried to feature as many aspects of London on my site, and of course this section will grow and grow over time, but the main thing is that I am expressing my view, my free to air opinion of the city and all that is within.
