It’s the best of both worlds I was told. Living in the countryside outside our capital city and working in it, and this may be the case if it wasn’t for the commute in between!

The job that began my commuting life I primarily got through creating a tube map for a presentation of a day in London. I explained how quickly and easily the tube could get you from place to place to make the most of your day. Little did I know as I made it I would soon come to realise that things completely change when go from just a user of the tube to a commuter on the tube.

Were you one of the millions of people constantly pressing re-fresh on your computers Sunday morning, desperately hoping with each click you would be taken to the booking page to purchase a Glastonbury ticket?
I have never been to Glastonbury, but it’s not for want of trying. I have dragged myself out of bed with a hangover, ready and waiting for 9am to begin the battle for those tickets… and unfortunately, along with many others, all I had to show for it several hours later was repetitive strain injury.

Fancy trying out top London shows before you pay to go and see them at the Theatre? At West End LIVE! you can, where hit shows are bought to an open air stage.

This annual festival, now in its 9th year, organised by Westminster City Council and the Society of London Theatre, in association with MasterCard took place at the end of June in the iconic setting of Trafalgar Square.

Been to the zoo, seen the animals and think you have experienced all it has to offer? Think again…it’s time to see its really wild side!

Every Friday night throughout June and July ZSL London Zoo open their gates after hours for Zoo Lates. So, on a sunny Friday night last month I joined hundreds of other party animals to experience a night, at the ultimate urban jungle, for myself.

Don your tiger onesie or have your face-painted as your favourite zoo creature and find out what the animals get up to after everyone should have gone home.
