Best Coffee Shops & Cafes To Work From In London

By Megan Stetzel | April 4, 2017

I’ve been happily living in cold, chilly, and downright frost-bite inducing London for the past couple months. I also happen to work entirely remotely. And as cute as my apartment is, I am not one who can get work done whilst laying on the couch.   I prefer one of the other three ‘C’s instead: Coffee […]

Awesome Destinations for Your First Solo Trip

By Jessica Dawdy | September 2, 2015

I’m a firm believer that everyone should try traveling solo at some point in their lives. You may have plenty of friends and family members who make for wonderful travel companions, but traveling alone offers so many extra opportunities for self-discovery, personal growth, and cultural connection. The big question then is where should be your […]

Soho: A Secret Foodie Paradise in the Heart of London

By Steph | September 1, 2015

When I lived in London I went to Soho basically never. I went on a date in Chinatown once, and I’ve been to a West End show or two, but other then that I knew little, and cared less about the area. When I thought of Soho I mostly thought of tourist restaurants, seedy sex […]

By Steph | August 19, 2015

People ask me about my favorite country a lot, and it’s a ridiculously hard question to answer. I love so many place that I’ve been; it’s impossible to choose one. I usually end up mumbling some random combination of Italy, Colombia, Vietnam and Mexico. Oh and maybe Bosnia. I have eclectic tastes. When I’m asked […]

Gibraltar: The Surprising Truth About ‘the Rock’

By Jessica Dawdy | December 21, 2014

One of the major selling points for my house sit in Spain was finding out that the home was only a short bus ride away from Gibraltar. Aside from some vague associations with a massive rock, I knew absolutely nothing about this former British colony – now officially known as a British Overseas Territory – […]

The Most Expensive Places I’ve Visited

By Steph | January 23, 2013

There’s a reason I’ve never been to Scandinavia before (next month will change that of course)- I can’t afford it! For all my experimentations with luxury I am still very much a budget blogger when I’m traveling on my own dime. $11 for a beer in Norway? $50 to stay in a hostel? Ouch. In […]

The Hidden Corners of London

By Steph | February 12, 2012

London is literally the most visited city in the world. Every year 27 million tourists stream through Trafalgar Square, the British Museum and Westminster Abbey. They cycle through the London eye and browse at Portabello Road Market. They drink cream teas and warm beers and shop on Oxford Road. They do all of the London […]
