Probably not many of you are aware of the fact that I have lived in London for three years in a row during my undergraduate studies at Cass Business School. It’s to my great surprise that I’ve just realised that there isn’t a single post on the blog about London!! I have so many deep soul-stirring, heart-warming memories in my mind. It wasn’t until I was 17 that I moved to the city of dreams in an attempt to fulfil my aspirations and potential. I met so many amazing people and have been lucky to have found my soulmates. From fancy night outs in Mayfair to hipster-ish brunches in Shoreditch, to dodgy clubs in Hackney, to meeting so many interesting individuals, to feeling the pulse of life running to a maximum, to be experiencing freedom of expression. I love every single bit about London and I’m grateful for the ride I’ve had.
By now, London is a place that I could call my “home away from home”. The truth is that the vibrant and cosmopolitan centre has initiated the early start of my character’s maturity. However, I have to admit that as with many people I know, I also tend to have a love-hate relationship with the city. I remember blaming the weather at times. Then the fast paced rhythm. Then the system and super-expensive cost of living. But looking at everything now from a panoramic perspective, I am confident and fully aware that I miss everything about London. The organisation that is made to perfection, the sense of evolvement, the hip scene.
Thus, I was overwhelmed by my most recent escape to London, during March. I hadn’t been there since my graduation in 2015 which was quite disappointing. But still, when I landed and walked through my old neighbourhood in Belsize Park, I felt as if I never left from the city; as if I traveled through time and found myself back in my 3rd year of university. Deja vu at its best.
On my first day I took a long walk on my own in my favourite Borough of Camden, and mostly around Camden market, appreciating the surroundings.
I will just leave you here to travel through my visuals since I believe that pictures speak louder than words at this point. Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.
I love this article right here so do take a look.
thank you for everything. I truly wait in hope to see what the future brings cause you and I have unfinished business.
Till next time!
