So the hard part is out the way…No, seriously! Deciding to travel is one of the best decisions you are likely to make in your life but it is also one of the toughest. Soon you will be exploring ancient ruins, climbing mountains and trying exotic foods from around the world, but deciding to take the plunge can be difficult.
I decided to enjoy the fantastic weather that descended on London this weekend and my buddy and I headed to Borough Market (see my post on my first visit here) and got some chicken gyoza and freshly-made bread. As we looked for somewhere to sit and enjoy the sunshine and the food, we heard the sounds of music coming from around the corner.
The time seemingly stands still in this American “town” with buildings from the late 19th and early 20th century decked out with authentic furniture, items and photographs from around USA. Can you guess where you can find it?
So I’ve turned 30 a couple of months back and I must be having some sort of a crisis because I’ve been thinking about what I’m doing with my life. I have quite a few plans for the next ten years, namely to visit 60 countries before I turn 40 but at the rate I am going, I might need to be a bit more ambitious!
My recent road trip around the United States gave me an opportunity to spend time in some fascinating places and discover this amazing country. I didn’t always get as much time in each place as I would have liked and Memphis was one of them.
During my trip to the States and Canada this summer, I was lucky enough to go to a few baseball games. I love North American sports and while I am a huge ice hockey fan (Go Hawks!), I have struggled to fully understand the appeal of baseball.
So, I vowed to do a few more European city breaks this year and I have finally booked a couple of trips for the next month. One of the great advantages of living in the UK is the ease with which it’s possible to get around Europe.
We have all wanted to bring a slice of paradise back from our travels. A small piece of a faraway land, a memory encapsulated in an object. Something to remind us of our trip and make us vow to return.
When I travelled through South East Asia, I picked up loads of friendships bracelets from every place I visited to remind me of where I’ve been.
This fast flowing river located in a major European city has attracted surfers for decades and attracts dozens of tourists vying for the best view from the bridge above. Can you guess where?
Sometimes, when it comes to travel, it’s easy to gloss over local sights in favour of faraway lands. Despite living in London for 17 years, there are many sights and attractions that I haven’t visited. Borough Market is one of them.
