Moving to London

This is my second visit to London – I stayed here two years ago and ticked off a number of big attractions then (St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London). I intend to stick around the Northern Hemisphere for the summer and take in as much as possible including the Olympic Games, going for broke if I am unable to secure proper employment.

The friends from school I hung out with when I was last here have since moved on, their Visas having expired. Several other friends will move here over the coming months and I am looking forward to seeing sites and spending time with them.

I’d been several months without a decent coffee so Flat White in Soho cheered me up immensely.


I was born in Swindon – an hour or so out of London and my parents moved back to New Zealand when I was 11 months old (hence I am a dual passport holder). I obviously have no memory of my time here as a baby so it was really cool to visit Swindon and Royal Wootton Bassett as an adult.
