I was currently at London now, doing a short course. It’s quite busy for a while, that’s why I haven’t made any post yet, and for that, i sincerely apologize. Before we talk about my journey in London, Let’s dig some more information about this place.
London is the capital city of both England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium.
It is a leading global city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research & development, tourism, and transport, all contributing to its prominence.
It is one of the world’s leading financial centers, One of the world’s most expensive city to live in, the world’s most-visited city as measured by international arrivals, and the world’s largest city airport system measured by passenger traffic.
Because it is world’s leading financial centers, London has a diverse range of peoples and cultures, and more than 300 languages are spoken in Greater London.
I really loved this diversity, some have deep sea eyes, other have a flaming hair. Some speak English other speak Irish, Russian, etc. it was a hodgepodge here :-), and they were pretty much polite and well mannered.
I was visiting London from July-August, and it’s actually “s-u-m-m-e-r” here (If you know what I mean). London Summer season starts in June to September with average temperature range from 13-22 °C.
You don’t want to wear too thick or too thin outfit here because its climate was quite unpredictable lately.
The best option is to do layering, because if it’s getting too hot, simply put off your outerwear, and if It’s too cold you could add more layer to it.
Here’s some guide for you about what to bring and what to wear as layering items in London.
It’s perfectly fine if you want to wear a t-shirt or short sleeve shirt, as long as you have something to layered on it. please don’t wear a
high heels, mega heels or stiletto or any type of footwear that might bring calamity to your foot because you’ll walk a thousand miles with so many stairs and things around, and also keep your luggage simple, nice and light so it won’t be a plus job for you while heading to your living place.
Any other than that items, you might want to bring power bank, earplug or headphone, socks and personal care like medicine, moisturizer, thermal water, pain relief patch, etc. because it’s going to be a long flight if you came from Asia, like me!
For playlist, I finally made 8 tracks playlist that you could access, hope you enjoy my playlist, It keeps me companies while I’m in London
