Belinda loves exploring, and finds London is very good for satisfying this sense of adventure. Vintage A to Z in hand, she navigates the mysteries and surprises of the city the old fashioned way. She is particularly fond of finding (and photographing) random poetic graffiti, discovering new fringe theatres and the odd romantic graveyard (there is a particularly beautiful lion in Abney Park, Stoke Newington). A business news reporter by profession, the arts is a passion that Londonist and the city itself never fails to inspire.
