Bye Bye Manhattan, Hello London!



I can't believe that today is my last Sunday in Manhattan. In New York. In the United States. H and I are relocating to London for our respective jobs. The movers come tomorrow. We fly Tuesday. We'll be in London for breakfast on Wednesday morning. Wow. I feel kinda sad that we're leaving the city barely a year and a half after arriving here. And just when I had almost gotten over the Bay Area and was become a New Yorker!

But London is one of the most loved cities in the world. Everyone tells me that I'll love it even more than San Francisco and New York. I'm excited that London has such an eclectic mix of cultures and traditions. Also, the city has undergone a culinary renaissance in the past decade - I can't wait to go on my food adventures. But the most delightful part about living in London will be that Paris, Nice, Madrid, Barcelona, Casablanca, Zurich, Milan, Reykjavik, Prague, Dubrvovnik, Vienna, Ljubljana - to name just a few of the fabulous European Cities I'm dying to visit - are just a hop, skip and an easyJet ride away! Not to mention Bombay just 8 hours away as well. Woohoo!

Lulu Loves London, shall we say?

Good luck on your move! We lived about 45 minutes outside of London for 2 years growing up ... I kinda wish it was now, because I'd fully appreciate the whole "foodie experience" even more. Although I still do remember the deliciously crispy, fresh-battered Fish and Chips served on newspaper with droplets of vinegar. Yum!

Lulu,

Good luck in all your future endeavours, i will miss your posts about New york...
but I will be eagerly looking forward to all your posts about London, Paris, Nice, Madrid, Barcelona, Casablanca, Zurich, Milan, Reykjavik, Prague, Dubrvovnik, Vienna, Ljubljana.. :)

You're one lucky woman to be able to go around the world. Very few people get a chance to see the world and you're one of them.

As i said earlier, whenever i read your blogs, i really see somebody who is very eager to travel and explore as much as i always wanted to..

Sush.

Fear not - you are off to possibly the greatest city in the world, and it is very much a gastronomic delight these days, not to mention a cultural delight.

Niki failed to mention that you were moving - will have to catch up over a great meal when I'm next back in the UK!
