Welcome to the Pre-Olympiad London. Them crowded places, the dirt. The loveliest ‘eurgh’ of a lifetime. However, having lived in the outskirts of towns and countrysides for 14 years and still adoring the serenity of calm out-of-town locations, city breaks are always ‘the events’. Till this very day, my warmest childhood memories are of flashing, blinding neon lights and night-time drives through towns.
