30 Days in London: Non Touristy and Slow Life

by Mee Jong

30 Days in London

Being able to spend a month-long holiday in a city is a #goal. This post is dedicated to a slow life kind of traveling plan, for 30 days in London. There’s no rush in squeezing multiple destinations in a day, or fill your stomach with multiple must eat meals in London.

As a student here, I spent a whole year in London and visited some touristy places. However, most of the time were spent at school’s library or in front of my computer in my tiny but cozy room. For my last month in London, I decided to complete a #30daysLondon where I went out everyday to see bits of London and document them. At the end of the journey, there might not be super fancy dinner, hangover mornings, or breath taking images on instagram. However, one thing I know is there will be parts of London that I can slowly appreciate and store in my memories forever.

Let’s stop myself from going on and on about my journey and get into the list of non-touristy things to do in London!
