London is one of the most interesting and unique places on earth, where a little bit of every place around the world has come together under one banner, per say, where everything has melded as one. Everywhere you look, other cultures hold a firm grasp, influencing the foods, the stores, the events and the arts, allowing one visit to almost make you a dedicated world traveler. While there are separate districts and neighborhoods that have particularly stronger influences from foreign cultures, most of London thrives with a mix of some of the best things about a lot of the most interesting and unique cultures on earth.
I found it particularly interesting to leave my hotel in London and to simply hop on the Tube and hop off at the most random stops, which I had no idea what I would see there. I definitely found a lot of the most intriguing places that way, but what this wandering travel technique showed me, was the various sides or shades of the city who those who inhabit it, calling London home sweet home. My first visit was different than I expected – perhaps neither completely good nor bad, but I will absolutely visit again, with a fresher mindset, and less expectations – because I know London has a lot of beauty to reveal, whether it’s its complicated history or modern flare.
