Hi there! I’m Manny and I’m a London man with a van and a blogger who loves to explore and write about the city.

I’m a born-and-raised Londoner and I’ve covered pretty much every inch of the capital thanks to my day job, but one of the best things about London is that there’s always more to discover! That’s what I aim to do and I’ll write about what I find right here. I hope you enjoy reading 🙂
