London – Where Modern Times and History Meet

On a recent trip to London I found some time in between meetings to wander through the streets. I couldn’t help but notice that there’s not one particular architectural style. And that there’s a lot of modern buildings amongst the historical ones. But somehow it doesn’t look unpleasant and it’s actually a nice combination that seems to fit the character of the city. Some buildings in London even date from before the Great fire of 1666, which destroyed a great part of the medieaval city… On my little stroll through some streets near trafalgar square I just kept looking up and around, almost bumping in to some people on the street whilst taking photos icon smile London   Where Modern Times and History Meet

Because London isn’t just known for all its main tourist attractions, but also for quite a few rainy days, it was time for me to find some place warmer and drier. And there’s lots of choice for doing that.

As a born Dutch girl I was delighted to see this lonely bike on the street. I’ve tried to cycle around London once on a Boris Bike. And I must say that was quite an adventure and a bit different from cycling in The Netherlands icon smile London   Where Modern Times and History Meet
