Flying to different countries from London is super easy. In this post, I show you 10 DOABLE weekend trips if your base is London. Happy Travels!
Eating in London on a budget is no easy task but I fully believe that it can be done if you know the right places to go. When I lived there, I didn't eat out a lot because I was constantly at my university - but when I did eat out, it was at places that were affordable yet amazing.

When people tell me that while I was working on my Master's degree I was on vacation I get irritated and defensive. This post is a honest, heartfelt opinion on this subject and if you are considering studying abroad in general - I suggest you read it!
In most people's minds, when you travel you have to have and spend a lot of money. I like to think that I proved that wrong on several of my trips. I went on a ten day, four country trip for less than $700. I also went on a 14 day, 5 country trip for less than $1000. Honestly, you can spend less than that if you really watch what you're spending your money on. I want to share a few tips on how you can travel on a budget but still get the most out of your trip abroad.
Let's face it, 2016 wasn't the greatest year for most people. However, I had an amazing year and I'd like to give you some advice on how you can make your 2017 GREAT.
