USS Dominik : Underground Secrets Search : Introduction

USS Dominik is sort of acronym for Underground Secrets Search by Dominik.

This is a 5 years mission: to explore strange new stations, to seek out new places and new civilizations, to boldly go where I didn’t bother to have gone before … eee … I got a bit too StarTreky. Am I?

This is my idea to explore and discover London. I came across this idea, because near the place where I live. Vibrant local shops disappeared in scary rate and they are replaced by soulless chains, charity shops, and property management.

I watch catch what is left before it will devour by clones of the same.

For each place I am planning write a short entry where  I will try find interesting places and facts about it station and surrounding area.

I will look for independent coffee shops, pubs, and unique restaurant.

I will see are they any interesting walks to do nearby.

I will do some pictures of interesting places.

 

I am planning to do this on weekly basis, but I will start from 1 note per 2 weeks in the first 3 months.

I started on 1 July 2017 and I am planning to complete this quest by 1 July 2022.
