Folks, it's been a blast. There's too many of you to tag but you know who you are - THANK YOU for being a part of the London community, and I hope you continue to do awesome things (and invite me to all the meet-ups!)
 
And so, after 3.5 years my time at Google has come to an end!

It's been an incredible few years, growing #LocalGuides into the global community it is now. Thank you to everyone who's played a part in helping me live my dream job - I've travelled the world, hosted crazy cool events, met interesting people and made friends for life. Now, it's time to dream new dreams. I'm planning to take some time out to travel but will let you know where I end up next.

Big up the official UK mods +Angela Lau+Adrian Lunsong+Jim Kiralfy+Darren McLoughlin+Matteo Fornasier+Dan Noz​ and everyone else who's volunteered time and effort into starting a local community. You're all awesome! 🙌

For Local Guides matters in Europe going forwards, you're in safe hands with these Community Managers: +Luis Rodríguez+Phil Verney+Juan Chiste​ and +anouk van den eijnde

I can't wait to see what lies in store for the rest of 2016 (and beyond!)

I remember walking though it on many a school trip, holding my breath, convinced that the concentration of car fumes would give me lung cancer.

Children would be a lot more relaxed if we introduced them to smoking at a younger age...

Hey folks, did anyone leave a bag behind after the #LocalGuides  party last week? The venue has been holding onto one. Send me a message if you believe it's yours and we'll reunite you!

Who likes lasers?! Join +Tara Mansfield's awesome-sounding Local Guides meet-up on 27 Feb!
 
Who wants to explore White Chapel and go have a game of Laser Tag?! 

Please only say yes if you definitely want to come as I will be arranging payment before the event as we have to pay in full prior to them accepting our booking. Places will be on a first paid first served basis :) 

We will have: 
2 x 20 minute games for £20.

At the moment Star Command laser tag only have 6 Google Reviews but I'm sure that we can help them out with that after our visit. 

Any questions then let me know! Looking forward to our first unofficial event of 2016!

 
Laser Tag! (An unofficial local guide event!)
Sat, February 27, 1:00 PM
22-36 Raven Row, Whitechapel, London, E1 2EG

Came here for one of their regular weekend supper clubs featuring Chai Wallah's - had an awesome time mingling with other guests. The wine pairing with the food was super interesting - highly recommend the experience.

Narrow bar serving gin and tonics in cute glasses. Decent dancefloor at the back.

I always recommend people swing by the East Side Gallery when visiting Berlin as it showcases street art on a remaining pieces of the Wall, however it's sad to see that the authorities have had to put up fencing in front of the Wall to prevent idiots from tagging / messing with the original artwork. It makes the experience a bit less special (feels a bit like a building site) which is a pity.
