LONDON, ENGLAND

Vibrant. Ecclectic. Diverse.
A home away from home.

 

I am not sure where to begin with London. I could tell you all about how magical the city looks in the winter, or attempt to describe what Wisteria hanging on mews are like, but words would fall short to this place. London is like nothing else. It is a city that harbors a plethora of cultures and languages. It's a place to quickly becomes home to the tiredsome traveler. 

 

 
 

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."
Samuel Johnson
