For the last three years I’ve written blog posts about where not to travel in the new year. They’ve gotten such overwhelming responses that it’s become an annual tradition. So today I want to share A Lady in London’s guide to where not to travel in 2018. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll avoid these 5 places in the coming year.
When I think of Greek islands, I think of Mykonos. It’s hard not to, what with its reputation for being one of the most popular places to travel in Greece. So after 5 days on the mainland, 4 days in Santorini, and 2 days in Tinos, I can’t resist ending my trip with 2 days in Mykonos.
“You’re the last guests of the season,” he says with a smile. This is beginning to sound familiar. After being the final occupants of our hotel in Santorini, we’ve arrived in Tinos ready for a repeat. Which makes sense. It’s the very end of October, after all, and the Greek islands are preparing to hibernate until spring. But there’s still time to see this one before it’s too late, and with 2 days in Tinos we’re excited to see the highlights.
A Greek island is about as close to heaven as my inner traveler can imagine. So after 5 amazing days on the mainland, my boyfriend and I continue our 2-week Greece trip with an island getaway in the Cyclades. First on our itinerary is 4 days in Santorini, and I can’t wait for Aegean paradise.
One of my favorite things about traveling is visiting friends. This is particularly true when said friends live in amazing places. And that’s why I’m so excited to fly to Greece. Local friends have offered to show my boyfriend and me around, and they’ve planned an amazing 5-day Athens, Delphi, and Meteora itinerary for us.
My great British road trip has come to an end, but my enthusiasm for traveling around England and Wales has only gotten stronger since I returned home. If you’re as excited as I am and want some guidance on how to do your own trip, today I want to share my British road trip itinerary with you.
After 5 incredible weeks, my great British road trip is coming to a close. Sad as I am for it to be ending, I’m excited to have saved one of the best destinations for last. I’m spending a day out in Durham, and there’s a lot to see and do here.
After visiting Leeds, my great British road trip continues in the North York Moors National Park. Specifically, in a little village on a big beach. I’m spending 2 days in Robin Hood’s Bay, and I’m so excited to be here.
Today is the 10-year anniversary of the day I moved to London. I know I say this every year, but it’s hard to believe how fast the time has gone. When I first arrived, I never expected to stay long enough to settle in, get British citizenship, and make a living writing a travel blog, but I’m so glad all those things have happened. And after 10 years of living in London, I’m finally starting to feel British. Well, kind of. And kind of not. Here’s why I’m torn…
