London blog by Nick: "It’s been an amazing 8 weeks so far"

Hey guys, I’m Nick Portmann and I’m 18 years old.

I don’t even know where to start, it’s been an amazing 8 weeks so far and the time flies by faster than you think.


I’ve visited so many places since I’ve been in London. And I can only recommend doing as much as you can, you will learn and see so much even if it’s just going to a park. But my favorite place so far is Ally Pally (Alexandra Palace) because there you have a great view of London’s skyline. On beautiful evenings, we used to go there a lot to just chill and watch the sunset.


The thing I love the most about London is that you meet so many new people from all over the world. You meet people everywhere whether it is in school, in the club or on your way home from work. When I came here, I thought I would only get to know the English culture but now I have friends from all over the world and I get to know their culture as well.


Another cool thing is that you can just be yourself because no one judges you. You can wear and do whatever you want because the chance is small that you will see any of the strangers again. There are so many cultures and different people so there is not much space left for things like racism and hate.


I already wish that I could stay longer.
