2- Cities like New York, Paris or London are a forever should go. No matter how many times you have been there, there will always be something new to do, some new museum to discover, a new building to visit or whatever it takes to surprise you.
3- If people like Alfred Hitchcock, David Bowie and Queen Victoria were born there, it is sure that it must be an awesome city. (And Vera Lynn is also from there!)
5- You might feel like being surrounded by movies. So many great scenes have happened in the streets of beautiful London! Imagine yourself has James Bond looking for a great mystery or a passionate love as in Notting Hill.
6- Wimbledon. One of the most incredible tennis tournaments takes place in there, and might you try strawberries with champagne? And then there is Wembley Stadium, and cricket, and rugby. Sports for everyone, anytime. You can't miss them.
A mighty mass of brick, and smoke, and shipping,
Dirty and dusty, but as wide as eye
Could reach, with here and there a sail just skipping
In sight, then lost amidst the forestry
Of masts; a wilderness of steeples peeping
On tiptoe through their sea-coal canopy;
A huge, dun cupola, like a foolscap crown
On a fool's head—and there is London Town.
8- Fashion is it. British style is famous all around, and London is in the middle of it. The better and the best is yet there to glow. We could all use a trendy grey jacket on a rainy day, won't we?
9- And then there comes Music. You are not just another brick in the wall, you are a Beatle crossing the well-known Abbey Road, or maybe you are Down in the Tube Station at Midnight, but when there is a London Calling you better have some Hometown Glory.
10- Not to forget we have beautiful Thames is crossing it. Those unforgettable buildings like the House of Parliament or the Westminster bridge. And you can see Big Ben! Even the greatest artist took some ti,me to pay its respect and honor, such as Arthur Conan Doyle or William Turner -not the pirate thought.
London is a bad habit one hates to lose.
-Popular saying (quoted by William Sasom)
12- It is now time to talk about the rather awesome-or-disgusting (that goes one himself/herself) Fish-n-Chips. No matter if you love it, or you can't stand it, but we should at least give it a try, once, shouldn't we? Anyway, if you won't get satisfied with the ease you can always have a nice evening eating fish next to Thames' views.
13- It is the best place in the world to make a queue, seriously. You need two things to form it: people and order, and Londoners seem to have them both. Such a pleasure it is to wait in line and not having to be bothered by people skipping it or annoying others. Oh, British Politeness, we love you very much.
14- They have a lot of old things, and London Underground (before known as Metropolitan Railway) is one of them. If you would like to enjoy a stroll through the city's veins, London is the place. And you could even check out Kings Cross Station and Platform 93/4 (go potterheads).
16- Hey, fiesta! The largest Carnival in Europe takes place in the wonderful streets of London. It is the time of the year were Notting Hill becomes an explosion of lights, colors and life. Get dresses up and enjoy the music, the dance and the smiles of the city's wide range of cultures and traditions.
17- Londons is a constantly boiling place. Life is spreading and shining. People going up and down, smiling, laughing or crying. People making friends and exploring the world. Grand openings and stunning expositions. It is a city of life.
18- It is often said that you can hear over 300 different languages on London's streets. That is quite a lot of words. The variety of culture and traditions is something you won't find anywhere else (despite New York, my apologies to the British).
19- I guess I couldn't finish this post without even mentioning rain. Oh, dear clouds, you love London, don't you? It is probably nowadays one of the city's most well-known trademarks, that beautiful rainy London delighting us with your water and your grey skies.
"The way was long and weary,
But gallantly they strode,
A country lad and lassie,
Along the heavy road.
The night was dark and stormy,
But blithe of heart were they,
For shining in the distance
The lights of London lay."
- George R. Sims
21- It will always and forever be London. keep Calm and Love London.
