Explore my hometown: London

London is one of my favourite cities in the world! Not only because I grew up here, but because it's ever-changing cityscape, culinary diversity, and creative inhabitants never cease to amaze me. Nothing ever becomes stale or dated here – London is fast paced, constantly evolving, and there are endless nooks and crannies to explore...it's just not possible to get bored!

If you live in London or are planning on travelling here in the near future, you'll be excited to hear that my Khoollect team and I (all London-dwellers) have put together lots of features to help inspire your next adventure....and they've all been experienced first-hand! Take a look below:
