Samuel Johnson said “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”
Well, I was starting to become tired of London when I was working there; experiencing too much of the tedious, overcrowded public transport side of London and not enough of the fun, entertaining, historical side.
However, this Tuesday I’m heading into London for the first time since I stopped working there and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to London once again being a place to visit and place for fun and entertainment.
I’m spending the day at a user testing session; I can’t say what we are testing but it’s sure to be fascinating as user testing always is. Followed, if time allows, by a little light retail therapy at the Apple Store.
Then in the evening I’m meeting some of my friends from American Express; of course this is what I’m looking forward to most.
London is a funny place though, even though working there was hard at times I think once you have been part of London it remains part of you.
Guess I’m not as tired of London as I thought I was…
