Carl Goes London
Still basking in the afterglow of hosting the last Olympic Games and various Royal family weddings/births, Londoners today are enjoying a renewed sense of national pride, wherever in the world the modern day locals hail from. While big business, big careers and sky high house prices are still a reality in London today, the ever-spirited locals continue to find creative ways of living and working in the city. While spaces in the East End are being reclaimed by a combination of media or tech start-ups and too-cool-for-school-hipsters, the city’s huge green commons and parks are playing host to formal festivals and informal social events. Sublimely multicultural and liberal, London life is enthusiastic yet fast-paced. And everyone is a ‘foodie’. Join Londoners for post-work beers on the pavement and get involved in the city’s constantly changing calendar of makeshift cultural events; working hard and playing harder will give you a little of the London spirit too.
