It’s summer in London. Or as summery as it gets in this part of the world. But even if the sun isn’t shining, the city is in bloom, the days are long, and there’s a sense of optimism in the air. This is one of my favorite times of year to be in London, not least because there’s so much going on. If you’re in London this summer, here’s a guide to the best of the capital.
It’s a beautiful morning in Delft. The sun is shining on the canals, the roses are in bloom, and the sugary scent of stroopwafels fills the streets. I duck down a cobbled alley rich with bicycles and emerge to find a view of quintessential Dutch houses. There’s even a windmill in the distance.
Remember when I went to Japan in January? Well, there was one part of the trip I didn’t tell you about. I went on a wine tasting tour in Koshu, and I’ve been keeping it under wraps until today. I’m excited to finally tell you about the trip, not least because it was such a unique travel experience.
The UK inspires me. The more I travel here, the more I discover how many amazing places there are in this country. I recently wrote about 9 pretty towns and villages in Britain, and since I got good feedback I want to share 11 of the best cities in the UK with you.
