After spending two years in London, one year working as a bartender while also studying English, and a second year working as a graphic designer in a small branding company in the City, I have taken a one-and-a-half-year break at my hometown in Italy. But now I am back again. And it feels so good!
What I love most about London is the sheer number of open-minded people from every culture you can possibly think of. Discussing the future of media with my colleague from Israel, followed by drinking a pint in a nearby Old English pub with my friends from Hong Kong, Ireland and Belgium while watching the Arsenal vs Chelsea football match is just brilliant! Another things I really like about London is the urban style and nightlife (to my personal favourite venues count Cargo, T Bar or café 1001), the transport system (I know it sucks sometimes and it is expensive, but it is much better than many other places), architecture (my favorites being the "Gherkin" and Big Ben) and the police (the police officers on the street are your best friend, always friendly and with a smile … unlike in other countries).
Lots of people hate the London weather … well you cannot compare it with the weather in Barcelona obviously … but at least it is never boring and you are surprised by what can fall down from a clear blue sky in April!
