London In The Spring

Thursday, 27 April 2017

London is such a lively city that is filled with ever-changing, ever constant beauty. I have lived in London for over 17 years now and I have seen it at it's worst and I have also seen it at it's best. There has been heartache and there has been pain, but the thing that has always stood out to me is it's ever constant, authentic, humanistic beauty. 

If you follow me on Instagram, then you would've seen that I took part in a charity walk on Sunday for the charity Autism Parent Empower which is an organisation that aims to provide teaching and training to parents of children with autism to help provide their child with the skills and support they need to thrive and succeed in society and everyday life. Our givey page is still open, where more information can be found, and if you guys wish to donate, that would mean the absolute world, no matter how small!

So, come Sunday morning, off we went into Central London, beginning at the ever popular, ever stylish Covent Garden and making our way through popular urban haunts such as Regents canal, Camden Lock and the ever popular Regents Park. London in the Spring is pretty much like Spring all across the UK. It is a time of rebirth and a time in which a new lease of life is breathed back into the city. It helps to give it that vibrant, busy and alive vibe that we Londoners all know and love!
How beautiful is St Pancras International?! Definitely one of my favourite rail stations in the whole of the UK.

The vintage classic car show was taking place in Kings Cross

I'm a big fan of vintage cars and could not help but take some photos!

I never actually got a chance to go inside this mobile cinema, but it looked very groovy from the outside.

And thus began our walk along Regents Canal...

Regents Canal is perhaps my favourite thing about London, 

Sometimes I feel as Londoners, we don't always get to see the raw and natural beauty of the city, because we are so busy existing on auto pilot, we forget to see and experience the pure joy that is London. Regents Canal stretches through from the centre of the city, right through to the east, it's huge. It is definitely the best ways to see all that London has to offer and all that it's nature and wildlife has to offer aswell.

I used to venture around Central London quite a lot as I used to live in Farringdon during my university days, but since moving back with my parents out West, and working near to home, I feel as though I rarely get to see all that this city has to offer. At times, in my quest to succeed and achieve my bigger goals, I forget to live and I forget to appreciate the very raw and very real beauty that is already naturally around. I talk of being stuck on auto-pilot too often to count and maybe I just need to stop talking about it and start doing something about it. 

Participating in charity walks like this are a great way for me to explore more of this beautiful city that I am living in, and see all of the beauty that it has to offer. I feel like, when existing on auto-pilot, we sometimes forget about the sights, smells and sounds around us, this walk helped to reawaken my senses to the beauty that is London. 

And so I leave you with this. London you are beautiful, you are loved, you are vibrant, you are a joy and you are a gift. I love you London, don't you ever change. 

Do you love London as much as I do? Have you ever walked along Regents Canal?
