In recent years I’ve shared my suggestions for London itineraries on the blog. From one day to five, I’ve recommended my favorite ways to discover the city in whatever number of days you have here. They’ve been some of my most popular posts, so today I want to share my itinerary for 6 days in London with you.
I’m skiing in Japan today. I’ve wanted to ski here for a long time, and I’m excited to finally experience what everyone says is the best powder in the world. But Japan isn’t the only good spot to ski, and if you’re looking for inspiration for where to hit the slopes, today I bring you A Lady in London’s guide to the best places to ski around the world.
I don’t know about you, but cold weather isn’t my thing. I realize this sounds odd coming from someone who chooses to live in London, but it’s the truth. Even when I lived in San Francisco I used to escape to Hawaii for Christmas. So over the years I’ve gotten good at finding warm pockets in the cooler months. If you’re wondering where to travel for winter sun, today I want to share 9 of my favorite destinations with you.
A new year isn’t the only thing I’m excited about right now. I’m also celebrating the 8-year anniversary of making the transition to full-time blogging. I quit my day job at the beginning of 2010, turned the A Lady in London blog into a business, and haven’t looked back since.
There’s so much to do in London that I could spend my whole life here and never feel like I’ve ticked all the boxes. But some things happen every year, so I get a second (and third, and tenth) chance. As such, today I want to share 51 things to do in London in 2018 with you. Or 2019. Or whatever year you get around to doing them.
Life keeps putting me in the way of the Arts and Crafts movement. The movement focused on craftsmanship and design around the turn of the 20th century, and there are still people carrying on its ideals and techniques today. Over the last few years, my travels around the UK have taken me to some of the best examples of the movement’s historic architecture, furniture, art, and textiles, and today I want to share 15 of the best Arts and Crafts movement places in Britain with you.
Walthamstow. Awesomestow. Whatever you call it, this London neighborhood is worth exploring. Which is funny, because I’ve lived in London for 10 years and haven’t. Until today, when my boyfriend and I take the Victoria line to the last stop to see what all the excitement is about. I’ve heard there are a lot of things to do in Walthamstow, and I can’t wait to find them.
I used to think I knew Edinburgh. I’ve been traveling here since I was five, after all. But on recent trips I’ve discovered that while I know the Royal Mile and Princes Street well, I’ve missed out on a lot of the less obvious parts of the city. So I’ve made a point of going back to discover under-the-radar Auld Reekie. I doing so, I’ve found secret Edinburgh. And it’s beautiful.
