Itinerary Overview

Since I was a child, I have always enjoyed traveling and above all changing your reality, even for a few days.

And traveling is what allows me to do

However, many times the travel budget is my biggest concern.

So I have been looking for ways that allow me to travel without having to wait all my life to save to do it. 

When I had some time off work but not enough money to travel far outside my home country of the UK, I decided to go on a local trip. I visited some of my favorite parts of London and then headed up to Edinburgh for the first time. This trip made me appreciate London in a completely different way. 

I've lived in London my whole life and I love the city. It is home to many a mix of diverse cultures, cuisines, art, and architecture and has a deep history. I decided to start my trip to South Bank!
