After 16 years living in London I still feel I love and live my ‘town’ like a tourist. I mean it in a good way! Inevitably living in such a metropole, you often feel like a tourist because there’s always so much you haven’t seen. Adding to that is the fact that London is an ever changing city and therefore not the same place I visited for the first time in 1988.
And yet again I feel overwhelmed with joy when I have a relaxing lunch with an old friend on a Thames cruise not filled with tourists (for a change) but with ‘regular’ Londoners who just catch up with their peers for a birthday celebration or a special occasion.
After the cruise I could not miss the WW2 ceramic poppy display at the Tower of London that was also visited by the Queen the day before. It is impressive and emotional. Lots of people paid their visits to remember all soldiers who lost their lives in wars.
