London Calling by Rena OrtegaTerrassa, Barcelona, ES
London is one of my favourite places in the world. I think I can go there many times and I never will be tired of it! I always discover news places to visit, new shops, new pubs, new expositions, new things in the markets... For me, London is a new but very well known city everytime I visit it. It's a place to lose yourself, to enjoy every step you walk, to go with friends, with your partner, even alone... I love London!
London: Land of Pints, Pubs and Pounds by Robyn MitchellCape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
Recently I went overseas for the first time and kicked off my travels in London. I really came to find London to be quite a magical and amazing place! From a horse head sculpture to a unicorn and lion that guard Hyde Park to the queen jewels to a Willy Wonka-like sweet store, London is sure to sweep you off your feet!

Kleve, Germany: Einfach Alles in der Nähe by Esther MolsKleve, NRW, DE
Kleve is a little town in the West of Germany, near the Dutch border. Almost everything you need in life is closeby (that is what the slogan means): shopping in individual shops - that sometimes already are managed by the same family in the third generation, lots of nature for making beautiful bicycle- and walking tours (it is nice and flat!) but also lots of culture.
