My last few days in Europe were spent in London. I stayed at a cute little hostel in South Kensington, which is beautiful! London is a very large city but London’s Tube, underground, makes visiting and getting around the city easily. When visiting London I would recommend an Oyster card. Not only is the Oyster card good for traveling the underground but it can be used for buses as well! The Tube also has an app, Tube Map, which makes navigating the underground very easy.
Other helpful tips:
– Most museums and attractions charge for entrance but the National Gallery and Tate Modern are free if you are interested. I recommend taking some time to look around.
– No umbrellas: when I travel I don’t like to look like a tourist. If it rains locals will wear a hat and trench coat or grab a newspaper, never an umbrella.
– Good walking shoes
– Try new food; I recommend trying afternoon tea, fish N chips (take-a-way), and Wetherspoon (for a good English breakfast)
– Starbucks, Burger King, and McDonalds are good places to use wifi
