London MyCityMyTown – A Collection of my yester-years
What is London MyCityMyTown
London MyCityMyTown Series is a collection of articles that reflect places in London which in someway hold a special place in my heart from yester-years. My inspiration for London MyCityMyTown Series was originally spurred on by an idea to retrace my time with my family, now that I am almost an empty-nester.
Allow me to introduce to you, London and the first of my London MyCityMyTown Series. As you may know, London is a cosmopolitan City that has one of the highest standards of living, a City that never sleeps with weekend transportation that operates 24/7, a City that is busy, busy, busy, an Underground system where the sounds of “Mind the Gap” becomes the fabric of commuting, – despite this, I have grown to love and really do appreciate this beautiful City, which is My Town.
My Town, London has given me and my family many adventures. As I reminisce on the memories I had with my kids to the places I visited over the years, and some on more than one occasion, I decided to take the best of “yesterday” (an extremely difficult choice, given that each one of the adventures are unique and memorable) as a Londoner and re-visit places in London that holds a special place in my heart.
As I revisit the best of yester-years, I decided to call the first set on London Series as “My City & My Town – Appreciating London, retracing my footsteps” series, – I know it is rather a long title but it embodies everything that this series means to me. In sharing my experiences with you, I have selected the five special places and by no means is one more special than the other. Each destination/venue is special for the unique experiences and the priceless memories that I cherish but certainly, it is different now as I visit these places on my own with my thoughts.
As part of this series, I will publish one blog every few months beginning January 3rd 2019. In each blog that I share with you, will be an adventure covering one special place and/or activities, with tips and suggestions on how to make the best use of your visit.
I welcome you to read and enjoy MyCityMyTown – Appreciating London, retracing my footsteps” series, through my lens and hope to inspire you to visit London 😊
