London on a Budget – it IS Possible!

London on a Budget – it IS Possible!

So we all know London isn’t the cheapest of places to visit. As an Australian in the UK I especially felt the pinch – the conversion is a little on the hectic side. If you’re on a tight budget, staying for more than a few days can be pretty expensive. We were on a tight budget when we first arrived here, lacking in jobs, accommodation and trying not to spend all our savings before we had to fork over gigantic apartment deposits. So I’ve worked out a few ways to be frugal in one of the world’s most expensive cities

A Quick Guide to Brighton // UK

A Quick Guide to Brighton // UK

In my short time in the UK I’ve had a few quick trips to Brighton. Perhaps not enough time to fairly write a guide to Brighton but I’ll give it my best shot. My first feeling about Brighton was true love. It reminds me of a mix between Melbourne’s lane-ways and The RocksĀ in Sydney – but a little less…. er, kept?

Dover is famous for its white cliffs and its castle – which is the largest in England. We actually didn’t properly do the castle this time as I’m told you need to leave the better part of a full day to properly see everything and learn the full history. So we trekked along the stunning white cliffs and looked out to France. It was at Dover that my

UK Road Trips // Kent // Tunbridge Wells & Canterbury

UK Road Trips // Kent // Tunbridge Wells & Canterbury

This week I did a bit of exploring around Kent in the UK. It was our first UK road trip and one to remember. Our base was a little outside of a small town called Sandwich. A sweeter town you never did see. It was the perfect place to base ourselves as there is so many small towns every which way from Sandwich to explore. As we journeyed in from Surrey our first stop was Royal Tunbridge Wells. The royal well is actually pretty disappointing so probably not much worth a look but the rest of the town is certainly
