“You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” Those are the words of Samuel Johnson, an English poet, critic and writer who lived in the 1700s. In part I would have to say that I agree with Mr. Johnson. London is one of the most gorgeous cities that top my list. Add to that the fact that hubby’s aunt that I love dearly has moved there, haven’t seen her in years and I would really love to reconnect. Thinking about the city makes me want to start looking for Central London Apartments which are available for lease or for sale.
But no, relocating is such a huge step, an enormous endeavor which I don’t think I nor hubby can face at the moment. However I would sure love to have a taste of life in London. I bet if I stayed long enough in London, I would horde all the Wilton baking products that I can find. Which gives me an idea. What if I start typing the words marlin apartments canary wharf on my favorite search engine? How many available apartments do you think I’d find? Could one of those be a prospective vacation house for my family?
Talking of London and being in England also means seeing the Westminster Palace, the Tower Bridge, the London Eye, and most of all Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton. I would definitely love to learn more about Jane and to have my own photo of her house (so I won’t be borrowing from another website…).
