I would love to visit the UK as a tourist. Last time I was there was almost 20 yrs ago and it was just for 2 nights whilst I was in transit.

I'd like to visit the tourist attractions in London. The hotels there seem so expensive though.

I am here basically to further my education (which of course i am doing right now), I didnt get here in any illegal way, I am not crazy about living in the UK, but i like it because it is developed and i am getting a lot of exposure here. That is all i can say for now.

@ Babycool.

Fair point! I probably should start by telling you why I'm in the UK. Actually I ended up here by accident. I had been living in Switzerland and then my fiance at the time wanted to move to London. I decided to follow him and then by the time we split up I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.

I was born in a very rural area and the idea of living in the "Big Smoke" had always appealed to me. And you can't really get much bigger than London. When I first arrived here back in 1998 I was amazed. I'd never seen so many people in my life, or so many buses or trains or taxis or shops all in one place. I fell in love straight away!

When I came to live in London I'd had no work experience and not enough money to be a student, so I literally started at the bottom and worked my way up. My very first job was working 4 hours a day in a coffee hut in a train station in the middle of winter! Then I progressed to being a security guard, working 72+ hours per week. And then I had my first massive breakthrough, I got an office job paying me 13K pa, lol. But then gradually I worked my way up the career ladder and now I'm glad to say that I no longer have to do the shitty jobs!

Sometimes when it's raining and dark and grey I wonder what I'm still doing in London 11 years later, but the truth of the matter is that London is Home! Yes the NHS sucks sometimes, but where else in the world do you have 24/7 access to free healthcare? If I'm unemployed or old or disabled or a single parent then I can claim enough money in benefits to make sure that I will always have a roof over my head and not starve. I can go to cinema when I feel like, I have access to 24/7 grocery shopping thanks to the likes of Asda/Tesco/Sainsburys - basically, whatever I need is never more than a 15min car ride away.

So, to sum up, London got under my skin. I'm not originally from this country, I don't hold a British passport, but I am a Londoner through and through!

SO BRING IT ON PEOPLE - I'VE TOLD YOU MY STORY, NOW TELL ME YOURS!!!!

Mrs oyinbo, you could have started by telling us why you are in the UK.
