London: Farewell and Reflection

I am writing this blog as I sit on my flight back to the United States of America. As I reflect above the Atlantic Ocean, I ask myself if I were given the opportunity to do this experience again, would I? What would I do differently next time? Was it worth it? In this blog,…

London: Free Things to do in London

Although it has been worth every penny, the decent amount of money that you have to spend in London is inevitable. This is due to British currency (Pound Sterling) being of greater value than the US dollar, combined with the overall high cost of living in London in terms of Pound Sterling. That being said,…
