Amanda Goes to England, Vol. 4: 28 August 2016

Mmmhmmm. I photographed my coffees in London. So typical. I am going to admit here and now that I will be showing you more tourist-type photos from my 2016 trip to London than I had planned on, because I revisited more tourist spots than I intended to this time. Such as going back to Trafalgar […]

Amanda Goes to England, Vol. 4: 27 August 2016

I honestly just slept in on Saturday, seeing as I had been up over 30 hours straight after my travels. Cool story, huh? This was the day when I, thankfully, got together with Candace! She herself had just flown in from New York that morning, and she was kind enough to take me out on […]

Amanda Goes to England, Vol. 4: 26 August 2016

Finally, I have arrived in London! I like to report on my UK Border Control experiences each time I fly into London, and this time was actually really easy.

Late night Tuesday night = sleeping through the complimentary hostel breakfast Wednesday morning. A problem I never had before Twitter found me a social life in London for this visit to England! OH well, there was coffee and pain au chocolat to be had on the way to the Tube… Before heading out for the […]

Amanda Goes to England, Vol. 3: 13 May, 2014

Something I tried NOT to do on my 2014 trip to England was stress about fitting in as many activities/sights/attractions as possible into one day. I felt as if I accomplished a lot during my first few days in the country already! Knowing that I had a second night of meeting a Twitter friend for […]
