I’ve lived in London for 14 months. According to my Costa Coffee Club card, I’ve accrued £17.40 in reward points in that time. I’ve also purchased 3 inflatable beds and have lived in six different areas of London.
It’s an exhausting yet rewarding experience to move around the city and try somewhere new. It feels like you ‘unlock’ a new section of London. You create a meaning and a piece of you stays there. I feel fortunate to have bounced around so much in such a little amount of time. But it’s also tiring and I have a subconscious longing to settle in the right place.
The longest I’ve stayed in one area of London is six months. It has also, by far, been my favourite place to live as of yet.
