My situation looks like this: I have just come home from my first trip to London. My friend asks me about it straight away. I want to start the description of my trip with a sentence like this: "You know I had always wanted to visit that city."
I think that past perfect is the correct choice here since I had wanted to go there before I left for the UK for the 1st time and now I don't because obviously I already have been to the city.
Right or wrong?
