facts about london

The land of rolling green hills, picturesque postage stamp villages, and historic monuments has been my home all my life. I’ve lived in London, the West Midlands, Berkshire and now Staffordshire. I’ve lost count of the number of places I’ve traveled around Britain – I’ve covered the length and breadth of the whole of the UK.

Even though I’ve traveled all over the world, nothing compares to home. Below I’ve written numerous guides and posts that reflect my experiences as a local and a traveler.
