Getting to the Airport is Hard

No doubt in my mind, getting to and from the airports in London is the hardest part of traveling. Being abroad in Europe you always hear about how easy it is to get from London to Europe, and that’s true, it is very easy once you get on the plane. But I have found that getting ...

Pancake Day!!

Comfy, Cozy, Culture Shock
