In which there is travel planning

Standard

…which is significantly different than having travel plans! You make travel plans when you scroll wistfully through page after page on TripAdvisor, all the while going, “Too expensive. Too far away. Needs visa. All booked…” etc. etc. BUT! Travelling planning is what you do after you’ve booked tickets and hotel rooms and you realise you have less than 24 hours to put the house in some order and pack your bag. Which is what I should be doing right now. But never mind shoulds… Originally this post was going to be a short announcement to tell whoever is reading my blog (-insert crickets chirping-) that for the rest of this week there’ll be a small change in my posting rota.

If you’ve been around since last spring, you’ll remember that I did the whole post-a-day-travel-blog shtick while I was spending money I should have probably saved and travelling around Britain instead of revising for my exams. Frankly it was more of a challenge from me to me, to see if I could adhere to a posting schedule. It mostly worked, I’m proud to say. So, this year, I’m repeating the experience on a smaller scale. Instead of working on my dissertation (as I should) and not spending money I really can’t afford to spend, I’m spending my reading week in London!

And you, dear reader, get to read all my gripes regarding public transport, my fangirling over weird bookshops and even weirder museum exhibitions and my unabashedly unprofessional critisism of restaurants and coffee shops all over the greater London area (mostly because it won’t be a proper trip if I don’ end up on the wrong metro line and get myself to Heathrow instead of the Kensington Gardens…).  Hey, I might even upload a picture or two! Now, wouldn’t that be a treat!
