How to fall in love with London

View of London from St Paul's

I can’t believe that I am about to have my second Christmas in London. It feels like only yesterday I was buying my first Oyster card and getting laughed at for saying pants when I should be saying trousers. Two years later and I can’t imagine my life without London, but it did take me quite a while to completely loose my heart to this city. When Seven Seas Worldwide asked if they could do a little something for me and my readers I jumped at the chance, because maybe I can help a few of you experiencing your first Christmas fall in love with London.

Not sure if I have mentioned it before or not, but it did a semester of university in London and let’s just say I went a little H&M crazy. So much so that at the end of my six months there was no way in hell I was going to get everything into a suitcase. Enter Seven Seas Worldwide, stage left. They dropped off the empty boxes and then the day before I went for a last hurrah in Europe they were collected on time and began their journey to NZ, super easy. Hence why I didn’t hesitate when they made their offer.

So how to make you fall in love with London? It is a city with so much to do that often expats don’t end up doing a thing. We go to work, we go to the pub and we hang with our friends – but how can you love your new city if you are doing exactly what you did at home? So, together we are going to cram as much London into a weekend as possible.

The best bit is that thanks to Seven Seas you can win my weekend and fall in love for yourself. The winner will receive a two day London Pass, which gets you into all the places I went and more. Enter below and stay tuned for my first adventure!

    I think just walking around London makes you fall in love! Especially along the river.
