London City Guide

·


I began my love affair with the UK 22 years ago when my twin sis met Jonathan Green and moved to London.  I cherish my visits to London and will sometimes visit eight times a year. Places come and places go, some stay the same. I love to go back to my favorites, as well as find new ones, so I always keep a running list for London. Discovery á là Hunter Gatherer is my thing.
