10 Things I Have Learnt in London…
1. For those of you who are looking to travel to London or even thinking about moving here London is a very, very expensive place to live. For example, a coffee at popular café chain Costa (similar to Gloria Jeans) costs 2.45 pound, sure $2.45 ain’t bad for your morning soy cap but when you’re hit with an exchange rate of 1.8 you’re actually forking out $4.43 Australian dollars, that’s almost double! All I’m saying is that if I’m paying a small fortune for a latte the cute English barista better come with it.
shop on a Friday night, just kill two birds with one stone and pick up a few bottles of tequila next time you’re rushing into
the supermarket to buy party food. Only have a crumpled twenty in your
wallet? no sweat this will get you enough booze to intoxicate an entire university.
Last Autumn in Australia I set myself a mission to buy the perfect leather jacket. I
was willing to fork out a small fortune to get something that was the perfect
fit and a good investment. To my inner fashionistas dismay I spent nearly the
entire season looking for something, anything! By the time I found one Winter
was almost over. On my first day in London I walked into at least five stores with
countless styles of leathers, the next
one more amazing than the last. I know where I’ll be shopping come next pay
check…online! All Saints you’re my favourite for leather jackets, please come to Australia!
you’ll find more men then the entire male population of Sydney. Dear Sydney, please pick up your game ASAP! x

me on the tube is wearing nothing but a football jersey?
RIGHT. If you’re brave enough to catch the Tube (London’s main form of transport around the city) there’s only one way or the highway. When standing on all escalators you must keep to the right unless you want to be trampled on by commuters.
9. The pub is the best place in the world. See number 3 for one of the many reasons why. Come on who doesn’t dream of drinking a beer the size of their face?
