Best 3 things about living in London?

It’s hard to list 3 but here we go :

One of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, London’s vibrancy is reflected in its wonderfully eclectic dining scene, there is something for everyone. There is so much variety. It is a mixture of cutting edge attractions and design, enriched with history and culture.

It is a world-class city.

Have you found Peter Pans statue,
Do you know where the Poets are buried,
Have you visited the Roman Wall,
Have you drunk at a 14th Century Tavern,
Have you travelled the old Roman Road,
Do you know where Dick Turpin robbed folk,
Do you know the rules of Burlington Arcade
Why was the Natural history building designed that way,
Do you know where the Bells rang when they sang oranges and Lemons?
Do you know the name of the street where all the Regency ladies really bought their dresses- and no it was not Bond street!

There are many “historical” buildings in London-The Tower/St Paul’s/Westminster Abbey etc. The British Museum/the National Gallery/The Tate/The Victoria & Albert are Full of artefacts!

What do you miss about Croatia in London?

My grandmother and the sea ; )

Favourite place in London?

Tower bridge for views and to eat I’d say Chiltern fire house

Tower bridge, London

Tower bridge, London

Favourite place in Croatia?


If you could travel anywhere in the world – where would you go?

I  have visited many. Possibly Philipines as I have heard that the beaches are fabulous

You are rubbing shoulders in London with some famous names…who are some of the nicest celebrities you have met?

My friends I grew up with and they happened to be famous, I’d say Kate Moss is super cool, she lives close to me. My girlfriend Cindy Crawford is very much like me, she is beautiful inside out. Nadine Coyle from Girls Aloud has similar family values as me and I adore her.

I certainly am, we passed the Croatian coast while sailing to Italy does that count for him being in Croatia ?
