[…]

London remains to be my favourite holiday destination; having said that, the city does get overwhelming for travellers especially if the trip hasn’t been planned well. My husband visits London on work all the time (read every other week), this was my 2nd time there, despite some familiarity, we made some solid mistakes. My post here is an ode to you not making these! Therefore, without further ado, here we go. Brace yourselves. […]
