TweetThere’s not always enough time to devote a full stay at a given destination, which is where the day trip comes into play. Throughout my travels, if I’ve found myself with an extra day, I’ll take the train to another city to wander around. It allows me to see something new without having to deviate […]
TweetSammi and I had spent the last week running all over London, exploring Bath and networking like my life depended on it at the World Travel Market. First thing in the morning we went to Spitalfields Market and on our way back stumbled upon Westminster Cathedral, the other Westminster. Westminster Cathedral is the largest Catholic church in […]
TweetNo, I’m not talking about the airline, but the air (space) line, London’s newest Docklands attraction. On the last day of World Travel Market back in November, I snuck my sister Sammi into the convention to see what all the fuss was about. Once our day was over, we took the Emirates Air Line on […]

On my first visit, for New Years in 2008, I stayed with my sister […]

While it can be fairly expensive to visit London, especially during big events like the Olympics and this year’s Jubilee and Royal Wedding, there are a few ways to cut costs. There are plenty of options for free […]
Tweet As some of you may have seen on Twitter, my arrival in London coincided with the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. This was super exciting, especially since my very first trip to London in summer 2004 was when Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban came out. I […]
Tweet As you may have read in “Making a Living,” I flew to London last weekend for a job interview. I didn’t have a whole lot of time (only 4 days) or money (still saving for Australia), so I had to keep it as cheap as possible. I stayed at my beloved Palmer’s Lodge Hostel in […]
