Ok, so I couldn’t help myself. While I am supposed to be studying, my mind keeps drifting. So here we go…
As much as I love being in Vienna, it is also a place for school and work to take over my daily routine. For the past week my days have consisted of getting up, having breakfast, studying non-stop, going to work around 5pm and getting home around 2am. Sadly it doesn’t really leave any time for posts about wonderful places.
I promise I’ll have my life back after Tuesday when all my finals are done and over!! Lots of updates are to follow, keep tuned.
‘Til then, have a fantastic weekend and make sure to check-out my bestest (confessions of a health-a-holic) and her tips and tricks on how to look slammin’ in time for summer! (She really is a genius in terms of keeping your body healthy and looking fiiine)
Summer of 2008 was filled with lots of traveling for me. 3 friends from California visited Europe for about 5 weeks and we tried to fit in as many different countries as possible, without rushing too much. Right before the trip to Rome, mentioned here, we stayed in London for 3 days. My brother and another friend joined in on all the fun. Since trying to budget we decided to go with a hostel. I have to say, we could not have been happier with our pick.
After lots of research online we finally decided on Clink Hostel. Its an old court house and has a great flaire to it. The rooms are in the old prisoner cells and the internet lounge and movie room are in old court rooms. Very cool!
Located only 5 minutes from Kings Cross Station we were able to reach everything by metro or foot. If you go by metro, make sure you get a hold of an oyster card. We found it wasn’t all that cheap to use the metro, but definitely a great way to get around. And after all, a famous london-metro picture is a MUST.
London is an exciting place to visit and a sure must if you have an appreciation for worldly but unique cities.
No matter what your interests are, fashion, food, sightseeing, british accents,… you’ll find something to do in London and will leave with amazing new experiences and memories.
