Hi, I’m Julia.
My husband and I recently moved to London from Seattle, Washington. We’ll be living here from July 2011-July 2012 while he works full-time and I complete a yearlong Masters degree program. This blog will chronicle what I learn about the city, and about myself, during this amazing year.
I aim to stick to daily occurrences, observations and things I learn about London and the other places we visit; and to maintain a focus on design in the urban environment. The blog’s name references the location of our flat in Hoxton near the Old Street tube station, and also my love for the character of historic buildings and neighborhoods.
I hope you enjoy it! I welcome your comments and suggestions, stories from times you’ve been in London and in other cities, and ideas for things you’d like me to write about. I’ve been a writer for several years now both professionally and personally, and I love doing it — almost as much as I love going out and finding the people, places and experiences that inspire me to write.
To get you started, here are links to posts others have enjoyed (with some of my own favorites):
