About a year ago, I wrote about my go-to headphones for travel — the Bose Quietcomfort 35 (click here for my original review). I’m here with an update to that subject.
It has been brought to my attention that I’ve only reviewed one set of headphones — what about other Bluetooth options? Continue reading “Travel Accessories: Bluetooth Headphones”
The Bestie was in charge of our bougie lunch for this day, which brought us to Galvin at Windows, a fancy, Michelin-starred restaurant at the top of the Hilton in London at Park Lane. Continue reading “Galvin at Windows”
If you do like bars and exploring the nightlife, try out Sky Pod Bar. This was the Bestie’s idea, of course. Plus side for all you Sober Sallys out there — there’s a great view of London from the bar. Not that my pictures do it any justice. Continue reading “Sky Pod Bar”
Unlike most people my age, I avoid bars and clubs when I travel. Props to you if you can do it, but I’m a lousy drinker and I absolutely hate drunk people (thanks to volunteering several concerts and rooming with two sorority girls in college).

FULL DISCLOSURE: I honestly never liked Shakespeare. All that old English made my head spin. All I got out of Romeo and Juliet is that I should never fall in love because a lot of people would end up dead.
On the other hand, the Bestie is totally into Shakespeare. And since I dragged her on a tour chronicling the crimes of Jack the Ripper (coming up in a later post), I thought it was only fair that I attend something that she wanted to do. Continue reading “Shakespeare at the Globe Theater”
Wales apparently has the most castles in all of Europe. I got that tidbit from a website for Welsh tourism, and I haven’t bothered to do the research myself, so take that information as you will.
On to the second Welsh castle of this trip — Castell Coch. Yes, I checked the spelling. Continue reading “Castell Coch”
Quick day trip out to Cardiff, Wales. I picked Cardiff because not only is it the capital of Wales, but it also had a very convenient National Rail stop within walking distance from what I assume is their downtown area and Cardiff Castle. Continue reading “Cardiff Castle”
