London has always been a special city to me. Almost 10 years ago I took my first trip to this city. Back then it wasn’t Luxury stays at the Radisson Blue Edwardian and taxi rides through London, those days were refined to college life. The sharing flats with family, fish, and chips every night (favorite meal) and getting around via the Oyster card. Don’t get me wrong, I still use the Oyster card as it’s the best way to get around London. However, my perspective has changed.
Back then I visited the London eye, sailed the River Thames, walked the London bridge, you name it. Now I just take in the atmosphere. I’ve been to the city an astronomical fifteen times. (who's counting) and every time I find something new to do. London, after all, is a major city, however, there are other cities that I am intrigued by the United Kingdom.
I so badly want to visit Edinburg (can’t believe I haven’t yet) as well as well as visit the Fairy pools in Scotland. I’ve attended Notting Hills carnival but wouldn’t mind partaking in the carnival in Leeds. Birmingham is on the radar for it’s Souther Museum of flight, amongst other cities in the United Kingdom.
I’ve grown to love Sheffield and its culinary wonders that I get pulled into on every trip. (You have to eat at the Botanist) I love Manchester and its enthusiasm and dedication to the sport of football.
My latest adventure took me to one of the more miraculous places in the country, The Stonehenge. It takes a while to get there, however it's with the commute.
Need to know why London is on the top of every traveler's list, just visit!
