It’s travel day. I’ve had so much fun with this feature on the blog. Travel opens your mind and gives you an appreciation for other cultures, it’s all good. I’m a picture taking fool and I wasn’t going to use the pic above but it’s a good depiction of life in London. A real Londoner going about his day with a backdrop of the Tower Bridge. Alright, Let’s Go, here are 10 bits about travel and about London!
1 – You will need an umbrella, it will rain. Now it’s not a torrential downpour, but you’ll need a brolly
2 – Even in a summer month, the days can be windy and of course rainy, get a lightweight jumper (a jacket) or a cute wrap
3 – Your best friend is the Oyster Card. It’s the golden ticket to all that is London
4 – There are a ton of hotels in London, but do book a spot close to a tube station. You’ll be glad you did
5 – Get some currency before you leave – you’ll have a few pounds and pence to tip your driver
6 – Get up and out upon arrival, it’ll help with jet lag and you’ll get the lay of the land
7 – London is a very walkable town, snag a comfy pair of walking shoes
8 – Eat local. Get out and discover good eats in the neighborhood
9 – Don’t worry about the price of souvenirs, if you like it, buy it. It will be cheaper or not cheaper at the next souvenir stand
10 – Organized tours are the bomb! You’ll see all the major attractions and get great commentary from a London insider
An update, the packing cubes worked so well, even had room for souvenirs.
I’d love to hear about your travels, where’s everybody been?? Do share?
