Hiya guys! Sorry for the late post but I'm overseas at the moment and I have been having an absolutely amazing time. Travelling is one of my favourite things to do in the world and this is the first time that I have done it without teachers or parents. It has been so bitter sweet. We started off in England and this place has always felt like home because I have been coming here since I was little to visit family.
My friend and I started in this place in London called Shoreditch which we absolutely love and are thinking about moving to after university, of course this might not happen as you can never really know what life will throw at you but it's something we would love to do at the moment.
The hostel we stayed at was called The Dictionary and it was absolutely amazing. The people that worked there were so lovely, the breakfast was delicious and the room we stayed in was great but obviously it depends on the room that you book. We were also super lucky with the people that we shared a room with, one was a girl from America who is lovely and we've become good friends with, there were two boys who it turned out actually live in the neighbouring suburb to me and my friend which is insane and there were a few other boys in the group and they were all 25-26. The bar next door is called Translate, it isn't a part of the hostel but you can walk through the hostel into the bar and they give you discounts if you are staying at the hostel.
We spent our first couple of days doing a lot of the touristy things because I've never had the opportunity to do that with family. Here are some of the photos from the heart of London:
After Shoreditch we stayed at a hostel in Camden, literally a minute away from the markets! The hostel is called St. Christoper's and is above a pub called Belushi's. The bar staff were incredibly friendly, which made up for the fact that the people in my room were not very nice. The markets are absolutely amazing and you have to visit them at least once in your life, here are a couple of photos:
Lots of love,
