Even though the New Year is well under way, did you know that it’s not too late to compose some resolutions, goals or plans – I prefer to call them goals. You don’t always need to wait for the start of a new year to make this decision? As a travel blogger, I tend to write down my goals throughout the year, make amendments along the way and try something new every year. But these are the top 4 things to keep on your to do list in 2016:
1. Eat out at a couple of restaurants, Cafes and food markets
This food market along the Southbank makes scrumptious food on Sundays.
Don’t be afraid to eat out now and again. London, like many cities has a diverse range of restaurants with ample choice. You just need to turn around the corner and you are almost guaranteed to find a nearby eatery. It breaks up the routine of cooking a meal daily. Personal recommendation has been one of my deciding factors when searching for a restaurant because I’d rather have a meal from a reputable place known by others than take a risk. Reviews are helpful as well.

2. Architecture and Sculptures
Spend time viewing London’s unusual architecture. You’ll be surprised at what you might discover. Most of these landmarks have been spotted by accident. They weren’t found by planned journeys.
These huge bells were being taken away from the St Stevens church in Rochester Row for refurbishment.
3. Walk around London
I’ve made new discoveries just by walking in the capital and one good thing about London is that new one can be made every day.
4. Read books
Quinto Francis Edwards second hand bookseller. It’s one of London’s oldest traditional bookshops. You can browse through books before making a decision to buy one. Then get lost in a good read which is what I aim to do more of this year.
I’ve spent so much time in previous years procrastinating. But I’m changing direction this year by focusing on doing things and visiting interesting places in the moment. Let’s not leave what we can do today until tomorrow.
As you know, it rains a lot in London, so don’t let the rain put you off going out or you’ll never get things done.
Yours sounds like an excellent plan and I salute your resolutions for this year.
You’re welcome. The aim now is to stick with them. 🙂
There is so much do in London. It is definitely not a small place. I have not come across some of these places my self. Thank you for this post.
My to do list just keeps getting longer because of these new places popping up in the city!
I love your to do list and let me tell you that they are excellent ideas for the year.
Thanks for sharing. Take Care
