While helping a friend plan her London trip a few days ago (yes, I have become that go-to person in all things travel among my circle of friends. I guess it means I’m a good source of information?), I realized that I had yet to create a list of my favorite pubs in London, a [...]

Having already stayed at the sister property earlier last year, it really was a no-brainer when Magellan PR offered me to review the Kensington House Hotel. I liked the idea of a smaller, more intimate hotel with a fantastic location. Let’s see how it fared up to my expectations. Kensington House Hotel: The Location The location [...]

I like to believe that there is a time and place for everything. A time for being rushed, and a time for taking things at a leisurely pace.

You know what they say, right? When in Rome… do as the Romans do. In Paris, go up the Eiffel Tower. In London, take a silly pose with Big Ben. In Pisa, hold the leaning tower. You get the gist. And in Edinburgh, the touristy thing to do, outside the obvious, is go on a [...]

When I visited London last November, I found myself in a difficult situation that made me both desperate for the comfort of home, and angry at amateurs of this world - my accommodation, which had been arranged for months, had been cancelled, just a few hours before I was supposed to check in. I had [...]

Not only is it one of the prettiest towns of southern England, it also happens to be the seat of the Church of England, and therefore the Anglican Communion around the world. It’s also one of the oldest Christian structures in all of England. Not [...]
