I love this country and relish the opportunity to touch the stones and buildings that have seen so much history, but whenever I visit, I have a hard time getting past the reality of the city I see before me. Each time I want it to be the way I’ve imagined it: grand yet quaint, bustling but without the tourists, and entirely old.
For the more adventurous: I went, on several recommendations, to Roast in Borough Market, which, on a Friday, is a wonderful experience. The bustling market is just waking up and delicious food is sold all around as you enter.

Hi Anna, how are you ?
Is it a synonym of bustling “packed” also ?
Thanks for your blog !
Hi, they’re synonyms in some contexts, not always. BUSTLING means “full of busy activity” while ” PACKED means “filled with as many people/things as possible”. In Italian BUSTLING => MOVIMENTATO; TRAFFICATO; FREQUENTATO.
PACKED => PIENO ZEPPO; GREMITO; STIPATO.
