Hi! I’m a keen traveller based in London who likes to get away for long weekends (on a budget). Travelling to me is about more than just ticking off famous landmarks (as much as I enjoy that too); it’s about discovering those lesser-know restaurants, cozy cafes and vibrant hangouts that allow me to learn the local culture. Hanging out with locals and getting a glimpse of their lives is the most authentic travel. I’m adventurous, which means I often choose to walk rather than relying on transport. Not only is it a great way to save some money, but it’s how I find myself stumbling across the tucked-away places. If this sounds like your travel style - join me on my journey as I share my experiences, tips and the joy of wandering off the beaten path!
