London In Pics – Sight-Seeing Here Never Stops!

As a Londoner, there’s a real danger of walking around in a haze, huffing and puffing my way through life in a blind rush. As I get older, my eyes become more open and my senses are permanently on red alert … Because when something beautiful or provocative suddenly appears in my path, it would be tragic to miss it because I’m simply in a hurry!

London as a city never ceases to amaze me. I’ve walked through its streets my entire life, getting from A to B, sucking in the energy, the atmosphere, the colours, the emotions and the contrasting beauty of one location to the next. I love that. I love the feeling of being a tourist in my own hometown. It means I can’t ever stop learning and I can’t ever get bored. The surprises are endless. The sights are limitless. The vibrancy of life here embraces me whether I want it to or not. It attacks my senses; sight, smell, touch and audio. I can taste the city as a result. It’s an uplifting experience and makes a routine commute or journey that much more exciting.

Here’s what I noticed last night and today, just walking along, going from A to B!

Sometimes, if we just stop and stare – literally just pausing long enough to fix our gaze on our surroundings rather than submerging our souls in the flood of our everyday thoughts – myriad sights unfold to give us joy. All we have to do is look around.

Memories of Belgrade In Serbia

If you’ve got the travel bug this summer and fancy a city break you may want to consider a trip to Belgrade in Serbia. I went in 2007 and while things have changed since then – for the better by all accounts – I loved my time there and thought the city had a pulse that beat a romantic and daring rhythm. It’s a charming city which felt to me much like a human soul; it had hope, love, scars, pain, defiance and optimism. You’ll see what I mean from my video:
