My London Bucketlist

London Travel Bucket List

Three years ago my boyfriend, Gary, and I moved to London, in the pursuit of a more fulfilling and exciting life and matching careers. We live in a small flat with a garden in North East London.

We are very lucky to be able to afford to live in this great metropolitan city. There is so much to do here, so much to see. And we certainly will never grow bored as long as we stay here.

Because as they say, when you are tired of London, you are tired of Life.

Yet we are far off from having done everything that is worth seeing in this gigantic metropole. We haven’t even visited the Tower of London, believe it or not!

So my goal for the next year is to check-off at least one item from this London Bucketlist every weekend.
