Well the past year has been nothing short of amazing for Randomly London. Although I registered the domain name back in December 2011, I didn't get around to writing my first post until March 24, 2012.

In that very short period of time, I've played around with a few different content ideas and London related topics. The overall response has been great, especially for my Tube challenge related posts.

Here are just a few numbers that sum up 2012:
