Travel Report: Hampstead Heath, London.

Hampstead Heath, London. April 2017. There are worse things one could do in London on a sunny Sunday afternoon than stroll around Hampstead Heath with an old friend. Due to my nomadic lifestyle, I only get to see my buddy Steppers every two to three years. Sometimes I go to him, with a visit to […]

Travel Report: Greenwich Park, London.

Greenwich Park, London. April 2017. I’m all about the parks whenever I return to the English capital. After all, they’re incredibly beautiful, not to mention merciful on the old wallet. Typically, I return home after another long spell in Asia. Thus I cannot get enough of that fresh English air, even if it’s often a tad […]

Travel Report: The David Bowie Mural, London.

The David Bowie Mural, Brixton, London. May 2019. I didn’t get into David Bowie until I was in my early thirties. In fact, I’m not sure how his unbridled brilliance escaped me. Obviously I knew who he was and had become familiar with a handful of his biggest hits. But it wasn’t until I bought […]

Travel Report: Young Vegans Pie Shop, London.

Young Vegans Pie Shop. May 2019. I’ve always been a committed meat eater, for the most part. I do like me a bit of chicken, some crispy pork, a delicious steak, cooked medium rare if you will. When I was in Beijing I went crazy for duck, while take me to a Lebanese restaurant and […]

Travel Report: Rock ‘n’ Roll Rescue, London.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Rescue, Camden Town, London. May 2019. One of my favourite things about Camden Town is browsing the various record shops. Back in my pre-digital nomad days I was quite the record collector. I had over a thousand albums, shelves of music books and a precious collection of programs, tickets and memorabilia from […]

Travel Report: Black Gull Books, London.

Black Gull Books. May 2019. There’s something about Camden Town that feels good for the soul. In fact, whenever I’m back in London, to Camden I come. Partly because of all the second hand record stores and live music spots. But also to browse its independent bookshops. Places that take me back to my childhood […]

Travel Report: Cool Spots Around Tooting Bec.

Cool Spots Around Tooting Bec, London. Following my individual articles on Tooting Bec Common, Dee Light Bakery and Richard’s Kitchen, here’s a roundup of my favourite spots from across Tooting Bec, South London. In terms of tourist attractions there’s little, if anything, to draw overseas visitors to the London neighbourhood of Tooting Bec. Moreover, it’s a pocket […]

Travel Report: Richard’s Kitchen, London.

Richard’s Kitchen, Tooting Bec, London. May 2019. It was a sleepy afternoon in Tooting Bec and Henry and I were in the mood for a Sunday Roast. In fact, I hadn’t had an English roast in over two years! As good as the food is in China, they’re not so shit hot when it comes […]

Travel Report: Dee Light Bakery, London.

Dee Light Bakery, Tooting Bec, London. May 2019. Boy have I had some fun over the years exploring the rich cafe scene of London’s Tooting Bec neighbourhood. Over the course of my many stays in South London, I’ve seen the range of coffee shops mushroom; the crown of favourite passing from head to head on several […]
