London called in 2018

Video Link


Having been to Europe several times, I didn’t manage to make it to London until 2018. My wife had lived there during college and a very good friend of mine had recently moved there. I had always heard much about London and honestly been a bit skeptical, but I must say after visiting, it’s wonderful. While we of course hit up numerous touristy things, I found the city to be extraordinarily livable, pleasant, walkable, transit friendly, people friendly, with so many amazing little niches. This year, when taking our children to Europe for the first time, we ended up going twice (which will be in a separate thread). As a part of our 2018 trip, we got stuck in the UK due to a passport problem, and we ended up exploring Britain via car:
Wales
Lakes District

Such a great city:

Great collection from my favorite city in the world! Still not a big fan of London’s cartoon-like skyline, but have to say the details shown in your photos give me appreciation of the newer individual highrises.

Beautiful photography, including those nighttime pics! That one photo that shows the building that I think Londoners call the "cheese grater" towering behind those historic buildings really highlights the jumble of styles that is the modern London skyline. I actually enjoy the idiosyncratic newer high rises.

Nice set. I did a walking tour of Notting Hill last week which prompted me to watch the movie that made the area famous!

London has called repeatedly the past couple of years, but we have to keep letting it go to voicemail until we can afford to go visit.
