Depeche Mode – May 28th 2013 / O2 Arena – London
“The important thing is not the destination but the journey” could be a very appropriate saying for the trip to get to this gig!
As you’ve probably realized I like London and I really like to lose myself walking around. That’s why I decided to walk from Piccadilly Circus toward the arena (fully aware that i couldn’t get to the arena in time for the gig just by walking). Continue reading
They’re lots of traditions to be met when in London:
- drinking more beer than water
- visit something new visit
- buy a pair of new shoes in my fav shop
- eat a proper burger

If you want a very good excuse to go to London, here you are:
Hosted by the Victoria and Albert museum, it’s a full immersion in Bowie’s lifes and attitudes showing not only what Bowie has given to this world but also what the world gave to him to become what he represents.
There is no other place like London, for better and for worse. That’s why i usually come back there at least two times in a year.
This August I was there for a whole week for a very special occasion (Blur @ Hyde Park) having the time to enjoy the city beyond the usual routes (music shopping, thai food and markets). So i’ve decided to explore some places linked with the music. Starting with a google research, it’s easy to imagine how many places in London can be linked with music in some way.
This is the walking tour i’ve built based on my tastes and heroes, which will give you the opportunity to discover unusual areas of the city. I’ll keep on updating the map in the next visits.
