Here, Have a London Sunset Montage! :D

As I mentioned, the place I stayed was directly on the River Thames, and the view of the skyline every night was spectacular. It was so beautiful, it made me look like some sort of professional photographer instead of someone who barely knows to how get on the internet on her iPhone! Enjoy! Advertisements

Laying My Head Down in London

My first Airbnb experience was a huge hit! Everything was even better than advertised. I stayed in a high rise in the Woolwich Arsenal neighborhood, which is in the very southeastern corner of the city. Not central at all, but close enough to a bunch of main attractions and most importantly, the price was right for…

So I’m the Only One That Sees That Castle Over There, Or…?

This was quite literally my response when I stepped out of the Tower Hill station to walk the street to the Tower Gateway station. Of course, I was looking at the incredible Tower of London. But let me rewind; I kicked things off in London to ease myself in. My friend AE told me that it…

Finding a Flight

I used skyscanner.com and Google Flights to determine what day would be the cheapest to fly on, and which destination would be best. Turns out it was London for me. London is one of the cheaper major European cities to fly to, even though they are more expensive in general because they utilize the pound. Also, I…

What Did You Bring With You?

So how much crap did I drag with me and how? I packed everything into two bags. One was almost like a giant purse, which I kept slung over my shoulder and would tuck under my airplane seat. The other was a medium size carry-on (that I never could carry on and ended up costing…

Why in the World Did You Do This? An Introduction to the Madness

Lots of reasons. I have always loved traveling, learning languages and exploring different cultures. In truth, I should have started globe trotting several years ago, but life did that little thing where it got in the way. The goal was to avoid being “touristy”. I wanted to immerse myself and experience a day in the…
