    When my best friend Becky comes to visit, we’ve found ourselves with a few different traditions. While they cover a broad section of things including different animals we love to befriend, food choices we’ll often make, places to visit and photos to take. One of the main ones, when we’re in London, involves heading to Camden. Normally this is on a Sunday before Becky needs to catch the train home. So, when I recently got the chance to hire a…

    Wow, it’s been a hot minute since I wrote a “Hometown Tourist” post, considering how much I love the idea I’m surprised at even myself… (I think it’s mostly as I’ve done individual foodie or travel reviews of things I got up to in and around London? Well, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!) Anyway, last weekend I decided to use up some of my holiday at work and take a four day weekend to spend a bit of…

    I swear, the last “Hometown Tourist” post I did will have had pretty much the same introduction. At the time I wrote the first one I was regularly heading out with friends, mostly from outside of London and thought it would be a great chance to write about our touristy adventures. However, circumstances change and other than a few fleeting visits – I’ve hardly had a chance to see said friends. Even if we do text every day. So on…

    When I wrote my first “Hometown Tourist” post back in February I had the intention of making them a semi regular thing. Since then however, a lot has changed. Namely, Sunday’s in central have become rarer and shorter, more afternoons than days as they were. That and with two of my best friends who regularly used to visit having new jobs, houses and so on trips to do touristy bits with someone who won’t judge me for taking too many photos…

    While spending the day acting like a tourist around London not this weekend but last weekend, it occurred to me that I go on so many day long adventures around the city and, unless I go out with the intention of creating content, I seeming get snap happy without any purpose. I also love reading peoples “24 hours in” travel posts. So I thought why not combine them and do a series of blog posts about when I decide to spend a day…
