Simply London

Much has been said about this city:

"There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
and the vermin of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pig could spit
and it goes by the name of London."

- Sweeney Todd

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."

- Samuel Johnson


So what can I say? London was a lot larger and grander than I expected. It´s a very vibrant, busy and lively city with loads to see and do.

The weather was great during my stay in London. The first day was partly overcast but warm and the second and third days were sunny and extremely hot - even at night.

Enjoy the pics!


Welcome to London..

Love London. It is the across the pond mother of most of North American cities.

Thanks. Yes I went to the East End but unfortunately I didn´t have my camera with me because me and my mate went there in the evening to visit some of the great pubs and bars in the area.

And when it comes to nightlife I have to say that Brick Lane is the most amazing street I have ever visited. Packed with people! The whole area feels very victorian with dimly lit streets and alleys.

On our way back to the hostel (located near King´s Cross) we accidentally took the wrong bus and ended up in Mile End
