Popular Destinations & Cities

One very exciting thing about living in London is that I don't have to travel around the world to meet people from the rest of the globe. I just sit back and let them come to me. They share their stories with me; I share stories about London with them and I show them my favourite parts of London. It's a win win arrangement for all concerned.
