Another Accidental outlet

This blog was started for me to record the words, events and phenomena that mattered to me, and that I wanted to remember.  Then slowly other people started reading my writing, and bless you, even responding.  And so I kept writing, for me and you.  And the pleasure it gives me gets greater and greater with every post and comment.  Every so often I'm fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to write pieces for other websites too, often by people who have found my blog.  And such opportunities I love to seize! 

For the last few months I have been contributing as an occasional travel writer to the Travelbite website, (a great place to find holiday inspiration by the way!), as and when my busy work and uni schedule allow. So here is a link to my latest piece for Travelbite which suggests a few things to do in a weekend in London.  It was a pretty tough challenge to fit all the top attractions and activities into 48 hours, and also to balance the typical tourist musts (which as a Londoner I try and avoid!), such as Buckingham Palace, with the things I'd love to do (as a local) with a free weekend, like potter round the Brick Lane markets on a Sunday morning.
It turns out London is a pretty fun place to be!  And there's so much more I have yet to explore...

(The above photo was taken from the Thames Clipper river boat, which shuttles commuters, tourists and the average Londoner along the Thames between the South Bank and Greenwich - a lovely way to see the city.)
