London Canal Tour and Camden Market: London Day 5

Sunday, November 17, 2019
Our last full day started out with breakfast at Drury, a cute little coffee shop. The decor was cute and the food was good! The orange juice was fresh squeezed and my avocado toast had a lemon juice flavor that was amazing!


Biking Around Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Eating Indian Food, and Getting Scurred!: London Day 4

Wednesday, November 6, 2019
Day 4 started out with us going to Big Ben only to discover it was covered in scaffolding haha. I totally knew this, but when we were on the London Eye I thought I saw it uncovered! So, we walked over to Westminster Abbey where we happened to run into a climate change protest. It was really cool! There were police every where and people holding signs and demonstrations. There were people "handcuffed" around barrels using plastic. It was really cool to stumble upon!

Windsor Castle, Bath, Stonehenge and A Secret Harry Potter Tavern: London Day 3

Sunday, October 27, 2019
Day 3 was our tour day! We left at like 7:00am (ish), took an Uber to the bus station and then took a bus to Windsor Castle. It was such a cute little area! And also so cool to tour the castle. I guess the queen spends her weekends there. It was amazing seeing all the different rooms. They have a separate dressing room from the closet from the bedroom and just insane stuff like that. 

The British Museum, Vegetarian Tacos, & Bibimbap Bowls: London Day 2

The London Eye and Pizza: London Day 1

I am going to try to post about this trip before I forget it all 😂

So, we went to London with some of our friends from Utah. (Jake's childhood friend and his wife, who is basically my twin.) They drove up from Utah and we flew out the next day.

The flight was ok. It was really smooth but I got a little sick and then got really panicky about being sick on an airplane. I came back from the bathroom and started clearing my space so I could feel less claustrophobic/hot and I handed Jake my camera, but forgot to get it on the way out and LEFT IT ON THE MF PLANE!! Luckily it was just my handheld camera and not my nice DSLR, but I was still bummed haha. (P.S. This is the best handheld camera: pop out/swivel screen and it shoots RAW. I have been using it for most of my photos lately.) (Wow, just saw it is wayyyy more than I thought it was and am now sad all over again.)

ANYWAY.

After we got off the plane, we dropped out bags off at a shop we found with a luggage storage app called Stasher, and got some fish n' chips from The Fryer's Delight. They were really good!


Our First Time Staying In A Sonder!

Saturday, October 12, 2019





#notsponsored So, Jake has been following this start-up company called Wonder, that's kind of like Airbnb except it's owned by a company instead of by individual people. They have a few locations around the world and they are all really beautiful apartments! So, when we were looking for somewhere to stay in London with our friends, we decided to just test it out and I ended up LOVING it! Wayyyyyyy better than a hotel room. And this isn't sponsored, it's just me wanting to share cool travel tips/things with you.

Pros: 
- having a full kitchen
- having a living room to hang out in (vs cramming into someone's hotel room)
- tv
- A TOWEL WARMER
- cool light up mirror
- beautiful
- fun to be in an apartment building
- smart lock that you can also lock from the inside so a code can't open it
- texting the company for anything I needed
- easy check in and check out
- bedroom fan

Cons:
- bathroom trash can was hard to open
- no where to put luggage if arriving early (we used an app called Stasher but I didn't feel the place we used was very secure)

I think my favorite thing was having a living room We went with our friends and so it was nice to have a private area to hang out in, instead of a hotel lobby or someone's bedroom. I also liked having a fridge and kitchen area for snacks. When we went to Dublin, we didn't have a kitchen for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day and it was actually really hard to find food since everywhere was closed haha. So, having a kitchen is definitely a plus!

Anyway, that's all I can really think to say! I liked the pillows they had as well. And I always like pretending like I live somewhere lol, so I liked the whole apartment vibe! 

Here's a link to where we stayed! The location was great and within walking distance to lots of fun stuff. 10/10 would recommend.

XOXO
