At an age where I should know better but cannot resist the lure of the new – I have chosen to drift through the world and share my moments right here on The Nomadic Londoner.
There’s plenty of beauty out in the world if you’re willing to go out there and find it.
I, for one, am eager to find it and so I’m throwing caution to the wind and flinging myself into adventure and the unknown. I’m waving bye to any sense of stability and moving abroad – each year, starting afresh in a country I’ve never been to, to a place where I know not a soul. There is no plan. There is no end in sight. The only thing is just to keep going. Keep searching. Keep seeing. Keep feeling.

London is without doubt the best city in the world and as the great English writer Samuel Johnson declared back in the mid 18th century ‘to be tired of London, is to be tired of life.’ More than 200 years later that saying still rings true today. Though I will be leaving my beloved as of 2015 I want to impart a 30 year’s worth of information to create an insider’s guide to this magnificent metropolis and all it’s nooks and crannies. London is a daunting place, even for those who have lived here for years, and I hope these guides encourage locals as well as visitors to explore further outside their zone (contrary to popular belief there is life beyond Zone 2!)
And since London is a constantly evolving city I have deliberately chosen to avoid including pop-ups and the latest hot spots. You prove your mettle when you manage to last three years in London and so rather than whet your appetite for a place that will be shut down quicker than you can say ‘cor blimey govenor’ (no really – we don’t all speak like Dick Van Dyck from Mary Poppins) I will focus on places that have already established themselves, are quintessential to their areas and yet may still be little known secrets.
