If you have watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S. “London baby!” may ring some bells for you. I am not ashamed to admit that I love London just as much as Joey Tribbiani does. I have been there four times now, and I will never get tired of that lovely city. It’s always a good idea to go there, you know. It will never let you down.
I love the busy streets, you are never alone there no matter what time it is. I also love the architecture, most of the apartments and buildings are very aesthetic and beautiful at least for my taste. I adore their food culture, you can sit down for a lunch or get delicious take away from every corner. They also have a lot of coffee places where you can have proper breakfast and lunch (we don’t have much those places in Finland so that’s why I find it nice).
But most of all I love british people. I can’t get over how kind and polite they are. It was easy to do little small talk with them and it didn’t feel awkward at all. In Finland no one pays attention to you if it’s not necessary. We even prefer standing in public transports more than sitting down next to someone we don’t know. In general Finnish people are just so grumpy. I guess that’s the reason why I really appreciate brits and their politeness.
We stayed in England for three days and that just wasn’t enough. We didn’t have time to visit half of the places we wanted to because the city is just so big and there is so much to see. Also we spent almost two whole days for shopping, but how couldn’t we when there is million different stores to discover.
Even though I could go on and on about how much I love London, there is no better place like home. I sometimes tend to forget how lucky I am to live here in Finland (even though we are grumpy hah). So even if I had chance to move away, I don’t know if I had guts to do it. But you never know where life takes you right? Maybe I will be writing this blog from England one day…
