Learn how to start anew. Big time.
Travelling to London is not as much about visiting a cosmopolitan city, as it is about getting up the gumption to start a new page in your life. A page about daring to dream big no matter how young or old you are, no matter how humble were your beginnings. The origins of this impressive metropole are humble as well. Starting as a relatively small rural area not bigger than Hyde Park (according to wiki) on a narrow side of Thames river about more 2000 years ago, the small community grew unexpectedly over the following decades into a major city with more than 8 million people. And over the time, London has encountered and successfully overcome a lot of existential obstacles like destructive fires, plague, two world wars, riots, civil wars, and most recently, terrorists attacks.
The unfoldings of much of our own lives are similar to this extraordinary vivid city, as a matter of fact. Looks like London has a mind and will of its own and a strong desire to survive, just as we hopefully have. Why wouldn’t we follow its model of success then?! Plan your visit to London right today.
