June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London pt.2

If you missed my previous posts within this Travel Series, see below: June Travel Story: 1st stop > Oxford June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London (pt.1) I split London into two posts whereby this is the second segment, and follows the aftermath of the London Eye. A beautiful sky! If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, then you may not know that I’m actually quite obsessed with skies and the vast variety that is possible with them. They always make me feel invincible, like I can do absolutely anything in the world. And how can we not talk about the colours right? The sky is my favourite ombre. When paired with the London Eye, the night ended on a particularly high note. It brings me joy to be able to find the perfect shot, and show it to everyone. Next time I return on the London Eye, I hope to see a nighttime view with the city lights reflecting back at me. My next post will follow me to Brighton! Unfortunately, I am …

June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London

If you haven’t already seen, my June Travel Story started in Oxford where I visited the city centre and the Oxford University Botanical Gardens. This post documents my next stop: London. A typical choice if you are to visit the UK but not an irrational one. We were in London for 3 days, however the last day, we used it to head down to Brighton seeing as we were able to fit a lot of places and tourist hotspots in the first two days. That will be covered in the next post. But for now, let’s bring our focus back on London! Green Park was one of the first places that we went to visit. I can’t say it was my very first time going there but to look at it as objectively as I did – possibly yes. Green Park is exactly what the name suggests. If ever, you need to get away from all the stresses in the world, I think this is where you need to be. Prior to this, we went through …

June Travel Story: 1st stop > Oxford

This is such a late post, guys! So…it’s no longer in the moment – way past that actually, as you may have guessed by the title. But I am still going to share this anyways. Memorabilia! In the first two weeks of June, I went on a road trip around the UK with my family in a rented 7-seater. We had some relatives visiting the UK for the first time, and even as UK residents ourselves, we have only been to the obvious places of the country but had never truly traveled it (like tourists) for longer than a weekend. This was something different to us and not just for my visiting family. This was our travel route: Cardiff (home) > Oxford > London > [Brighton for a day] > Edinburgh > Lake District > Home First stop was Oxford! We were only in Oxford for a good few hours before we headed to a Designer Shopping Village in Bicester. The fascination with Oxford mainly comes from its renowned university which my relatives wanted to explore – it’s actually …

How to Travel Comfortably in Style

Traveling: (my definition) – Going from place to place and generally being outdoors and on-foot most of the time, which calls for long days out (12 hours+) in unfamiliar settings away from home. Let’s be real: There is no other place quite like home when it comes to being comfortable. But as it happens, you cannot carry everything with you. So what exactly do you pack that’s practical, without eliminating your style? I have traveled many times, and learned from my mistakes growing up. Now as a fully-grown adult, I still make some mistakes, but I like to think that I have improved immensely, and can get from A to B without looking too crazy when miles away from home. This is my fool-proof guide to comfort in style. Appropriate Footwear But who is going to look at your feet/footwear right? Possibly no one. Possibly not many people. Possibly everyone if you choose the right footwear…or the wrong footwear. The difference being only you will feel what’s on your feet, and if it’s not right, blisters will take over …
