Exploring your own city

As I am new to London, everything seems to be so shiny and exciting to me. Moving to a new city can be incredibly terrifying to some people, and I totally understand that, but recently I have noticed that I have a new found confidence in myself that has only come along since moving to London. I am experiencing so many new things, and my sense of curiosity is definitely growing on a daily basis. I am so grateful to my lovely friends because I am learning so much about the best bars, best restaurants, best shops...the list goes on. I have always believed that you should give other peoples' recommendations a go, and I am pleased to say that I have not been let down so far. London is such a ginormous place so I know full well that I will constantly be discovering a different gem on every corner for as long as I live here! 
'Real Londoners' apparently don't travel to certain parts of the city very often because they think they are too touristy (Oxford Street is a perfect example of this) but as everywhere is exciting to me, I get a weird thrill from the hustle and bustle of the busy areas of the city. I'm sure I will begin to hate the slow walkers, selfie takers, luggage holders etc in no time, but for now, I am going to relish in the madness of this new, wonderful city I am living in. It's very easy to move somewhere new and then only learn about the places near to where you live or work...after all, this is where you spend the majority of your time. However, if you change your mentality a little, then life can become so much more interesting, and you will experience things you wouldn't have otherwise. One of the best things my parents taught me about their younger lives in London was - 'Everywhere in London takes an hour'. If you take on this attitude, then you find that you aren't so lazy and you haven't got that little voice in your head preventing you from trying new things purely because of the time it takes to get from A to B. With this new attitude, I have found that I have a huge list of things I want to experience in London, and hopefully I will be able to share some of those moments with you on my blog over the many years that I'm sure I'll be living here. 
A couple of weekends ago I ticked off one of the items on my list - The Sky Garden. Although it hasn't been around for a huge amount of time, I had heard such incredible things about it and knew that it would be worth the hype. So many people I know have said that it they thought it would be really touristy, but I was so surprised at how enjoyable and relaxing it was! To go along to the Sky Garden you need to book tickets, and although they are free, they can be a bugger to get as you can only book three weeks beforehand - and as you can imagine, the tickets go very quickly! We went along on a busy Saturday lunch time, but it wasn't overcrowded or loud - instead they let in the perfect amount of people and we were able to walk around leisurely, grab a drink at the bar, sit and enjoy the greenery surrounding us, and walk round the four sides to look at the gorgeous views outside. On a clear day you can see for miles, and even with my little knowledge of London, I was still very impressed. After a busy week at work, I was so looking forward to my Sky Garden visit, and I left feeling really happy and relaxed at the experience I'd had for an past hour. Whatever city you live in, there will always be more things that you can explore - so get out there and make the most of it!
