I like shoppinng and I would like to go to London to go shopping. where I live, there aren't many shops so I can not buy lots of clothes and things. I have to take a bus to reach the nearest shopping centre, and it's very boring because it takes about an hour, so, I don't go shopping a lot.

I love shopping a lot in my country because finding the clothes you want from your favourite brands is easy cause there's a different shop for each brand in the same mall.I would LOVE to shop in London because it seems so much fun because i think the brands are original and more than in my country.

I like shopping. The difference between shopping in London and shopping in the place I live is that there are much more shops in London. There are not much shops here and there are no big department stores. I like clothing shops, because I like buying clothes.

Wesse & Igor

We don't like shopping in the shopping mall.
We only buy clothes online, just for shoes we
go to the shopping mall. But, we like shopping
with our girlfriends.

I enjoy shopping, but I'm not a shopaholic. London is the most popular city in the world famous for fashion. There are much more shops than in the capital city of Poland, Warsaw. In my town we don't have any big shopping malls, so I must go to a bigger city, if a want to buy something.

In my city their is a lot of shopping places put the problem is that there isn't many different stores as UK and the shopping here is quite expensive. I love to buy new clothes and wear the newly style, my mother always says to me that I should not buy anymore clothes because wardrobe is full and you have everything.

Shopping is great. But money is the main issue when I want to buy many many things including something's not really necessary.

I adore shopping. London is really shopping capital of the world. There are so many shops and it is a pleasure to shop there. However in my town there are a lot of shops but substantially less than in London. The most famous shopping center in my town and the biggest one is Delta City.

Although I am a male, I love shopping... There aren't any shopping malls in my town and there are just a few stores... I usually do my shopping somewhere abroad... The main difference is that people here don't shop at malls and stores, they usually do their shopping a the local market. Black market is quite common as well, many people shop there...

I love shopping anywhere. In my town there are lots of different clothes, so anyone can buy something. I have never been aboard. I would like to go in London. It is my dream.
