This is a personal blog in that I post some of the happier snippets of my life, so I’ve wrestled with whether—or how—to mention what’s been going recently. Basically, I’ve been single for a while. Hardly relevant to a travel blog, but still: my life is different and this blog will inevitably change a bit too.
Having moved out of my co-owned flat, I’m now settling into my own little place near Borough Market (hence my new nickname). I’m looking forward to exploring a less familiar part of town—I desperately need NEWNESS. This week is my sixth London-versary and it’s the first time I’ve lived south of the river (the uninitiated should know that Londoners are strictly north or south people). I love that London is big enough that you don’t have to leave but can have a fresh start.
In this spirit I’m living alone, also for the first time. Sadly solo London living = £££ so there’ll be less travel posts here (still as many as possible!) but I’m looking forward to my new life in Southwark.
