In October of last year, my boyfriend & I decided that we wanted to take a big trip after I graduated from college. Because it was our first time heading overseas together, we wanted to go somewhere that was easy to get around, relatively affordable and English speaking. At that time, we booked our hotel and flight to leave on June 1st – booking so far in advance through Travelocity helped us get the best rate possible (I also highly recommend purchasing the additional travel insurance, just in case something comes up).
As the year went on, we sporadically bought other things for our trip as we could afford them, such as show tickets and making reservations at popular destinations to eat. This allowed us to spread out our big costs so that the expense didn’t feel so overwhelming all at once.
For our first full day, we headed out from our our hotel & hit up the famous Portobello Road Market. We had so much fun walking through the antique shops, sampling food from local vendors & watching street performers along the way. The backdrop is absolutely beautiful with all the pastel colored buildings and we were fortunate enough to have sunny warm weather all afternoon. That evening, we went to see The Play That Goes Wrong, which was hilarious (highly recommend!).
