In the latest edition of “Meet the Londoner” Julie Falconer shows us her favourite spots in London. And if you are into reading travel blogs with a focus on London, I am sure you have heard about Julie already. She is the woman behind “A Lady in London“, her blog which she turned into a full-time job in 2010.

I have read her blog for many years and I admire her writing and photography skills. How cool that I could meet her during Travers Conference in Rotterdam in June 2018! Enjoy the questionnaire-interview for which Julie added the works in italic.

The Lady in London – Julie Falconer

Hi, I am Julie

I am from San Francisco, but I live in London at the moment.

I am a travel blogger

Most of my work can be found on my homepage.

When I was a kid I wanted to become a ballerina.

Besides working on my blog, giving talks and trainings, I enjoy traveling all over the world and exploring London.

I love Pinot Noir and Mexican food.

I wish I could travel to every country in the world.

My favourite book is “The Time Traveler’s Wife”.

I am happiest when I’m traveling or exploring London.

Julie’s about London

My favourite area in London is Hampstead.

The best time in London is spring because all the flowers are in bloom and the city looks and smells amazing.

I get my inspiration from the city’s beautiful streets.

The following three words describe London best: big, bustling, beautiful.

My favourite sight in London is Big Ben (when it’s not covered in scaffolding).

The coolest bar in London is Mr Fogg’s.

The best food is at London’s many markets.

Some fun stuff about Julie

Milk in first or milk in last? First, because my Scottish grandmother told me that in the old days it would break cheap porcelain if you poured boiling water in the cup without milk to cool it down

Marmite – love it or hate it? Love it!

My motto in life is never check in a bag!


Thanks so much for this interview, Julie!
