London – Day 5

A day trip to Bath was a really hard journey to follow, but we still had three days left in London to explore, sight see, and eat, of course!

My husband’s parents contributed to a 3-day London Pass as part of his birthday present, so we saved that for our last three days. I’ll make a separate post that gives details and all my thoughts on the London Pass.

As I noted in earlier posts about our London journey, there were several things that didn’t quite go as I had planned, so I was determined to make our last three days flawless (dumb mistake, y’all).

Touring London- Day 2

After a good, but hot, night’s sleep (we had the a/c cranked as hard as it would go, and I still woke up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat), we got up early to start the day’s events! I was excited for everything that was in store, but the day didn’t quite end up the way I planned…

Touring London – Day 1

This is technically my second post on London (be sure to check out my previous post on packing and planning!). We arrived in London around 10:30 am on a Monday, so we had the entire day to explore and fight jet lag. Hint: whatever you do, try to get on the schedule of wherever you’re traveling. Do not take a nap, no matter how bad you want one! Getting on a new schedule ASAP is really helpful in preventing jet lag.

How to Plan and Pack for London

I feel like this is kind of an ironically titled post; of all the trips I’ve planned, this one felt the most unorganized despite spending hours and months poring over information. It took me so long to piece together an itinerary, but it seemed like a majority of those plans erupted once we were over there.

Nevertheless, I’ll share what I planned, what missed the mark, and hopefully some of my failures will help you out if you’re planning a trip to London soon.

Birmingham – the Best Walls in the City

Back in November, my friend Hannah and I traveled down to Alabama for a conference. In between presenting and attending panels, we took a lot of time to explore this amazing city. I’m dividing up the posts to keep it from being completely overwhelming (I’ll be following up with a food post and a post on The Civil Rights Institute), so the first post is dedicated to the amazing backdrops in the city.
