  1. Even though I live in London I’ve never made it to Nottinghill Carnival!! Whaaaat! This has to change.
    I’ve only done my local ones, Guy Fawkes and Hogmanay… Would love to do Rio, Holi, the lantern festival and the day of the dead… There’s quite a few I haven’t heard of though so great list!!
