Miss you london

This might sound a bit too emotional of a grief. But it’s a fact that I miss London a lot. I have special memories going back 5 years when I celebrated my Christmas and New Year with my friends. I Miss you London and it’s a fact, knowing that this city is one of the best cities to live in the world. The magic of Christmas is truly reflected in TV ads, the shopping craze, the hustling and bustling of people, running for last-minute deals, holiday atmosphere in retail outlets as well as offices. I remember very well I did loads of unnecessary shopping and surely spent a bit more than what I was willing to spend. Well at the end of the day, it’s the time of the year when people do love spending and buying gifts for their loved ones.

Attractions and places I miss in London

For instance, Hyde Park is an awesome hangout place for friends and family alike. You have rides for kids, nice warm mulled wines, yum nuts and crackers, cinnamon coffee and Christmas gifts all around this Winter Wonderland. The biggest attraction which I miss very much is ice skating, I love fooling around and skating on ice. Ice skating brings all age group people together to enjoy the time skating. For some, it’s just another day, but people who have understood the magic of Christmas will know that London has this charismatic feel when it comes to Christmas which cannot be compared to anything else in the world. The whole of central London is shining and alive with Lights and people all around and shopping like anything. The traditional lighting of Oxford Street, Regent Street, and Piccadilly Circus is truly a sign of good times and celebrations. Christmas in London is like a melting pot of British culture.

Memory Lane

I studied in regents business school and I used to travel from east London i.e. from White Chapel Road road 3 times a week to Baker street. I remember very well I used to take the route number 205 bus and it used to take me through the city road, showing me from St.Pancras Renaissance Hotel to the British Library and Great Portland Street. Sometimes I used to take the train when I was getting late for classes. I used to avoid the trains as the trains were expensive as I was living with a limited budget in London. So, if you are living with a limited budget I suggest you take the busses more and make sure you plan your travel properly because roads do get jammed on peak hours like any other metro city in the world. The best part of travelling around London was, that the trains and buses are well connected and you have an organised travel system in London. Having an oyster card is a great boon for people who are regular travellers like people who go to offices, study etc. I had the student oyster, I used to get 30% off on the normal ticket value of the trips. The trip cost from one zone to another differs depending on the traffic, crowd, and importance. For example, zone 1 tickets will be the most expensive ones for travellers from Zone 2 to Zone 3. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in London, and it was indeed a great city to live in. I liked travelling around Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street, and Convent Garden. If I ever go to London again, I am sure I will go to these places again. Have so many fond memories of these places. Also, I love shopping in London.
