As an expat in London, one of the top questions I get from friends and family (and their friends and family many times removed) is what to see and do when coming to London. And, let’s be fair – I don’t blame them! Recommendations from people you trust are a huge advantage when traveling. With my family coming to London for 7 days, there was no better time to put my curated list of restaurants, hotels and attractions to the test. Check out my curated 7-day itinerary and let your travel planning begin!
Time flies when you’re having fun! With longer days and warmer weather in London, I spent lots of time outside. I also traveled more than usual with a weekend jaunt to Bruges in Belgium, followed by a week in Boston, Connecticut and NYC, all before coming back to London for the Bank Holiday weekend. Here are my photo highlights!
Today was an amazing day – Dunkin’ Donuts opened a central London location adjacent to the Baker Street underground!
As a former employee and huge fan, having a taste of home is pretty exciting. Dunkin’ even has a proper Iced Coffee with Splenda. None of this Iced Americano or hot coffee poured over ice – the real deal!
And yes, there are donuts. Lots and lots of decadent donuts – I was impressed by the flavor options!
Ah, Paris. Always a good idea, especially when it’s the setting for an epic girls weekend. Between the warm weather, incredible food, sightseeing and a few surprise encounters, the magic of Paris made this trip memorable. Here are my tips and recommendations on how to spend a girls weekend in Paris.
Where To Stay
I absolutely adore Hotel Le Bellechasse in St. Germain. Decorated by Christian Lacroix, the hotel is in a fantastic location blocks from Musée d’Orsay. The hotel only has 33 guest rooms, free wi-fi and the service is great.
May was a month jam-packed with speaking engagements – and a dash of fun. From traveling to Boston, NYC, Hamburg, Germany and a few epic meals out, here are my photo highlights.
