My name is Anton; I am originally from a small town on the seaside in Italy called Montesilvano. I moved to London at the age of 18 to study at university. I am now 36 (it feels weird when I say it out loud, anyway) you do the maths… I have been here almost half of my life. Like all the other 9 million people who live here, I see myself as a real Londoner.
London can be both wonderful and intimidating.
London is an incredible city in which to live and work.
London is lively and chaotic; a vast mix of culture and almost ten million people, yet it can be a lonely place. London is a deliberate contradiction. Bustling, beautiful and impossibly infectious.
Life is transient here. You’re continually welcoming, bonding and letting go. People are coming and going all time.
It’s entirely possible to love and hate London with equal intensity. Some days, you’re invincible. Because you’re here, living your dream. Other days, you want to jump off the edge of the world: frustrated, perplexed. Tomorrow, you’ll awake, prepared to continue.
I decided to start this website and blog to tell everything that one needs to know about news, events, places, curiosities, and much more.
I will include London in the past, present and things happening and projects for the near future.
Everything you need and want to know about the capital while celebrating the quirks, eccentricities, hidden and unusual bits that make London the greatest city in the World.
I hope you like it.
