Bury My Ashes In Harrods

POV: you are 12 years old and your mom hands you $100 dollars to explore the city with 2 of your siblings by yourself...what do you do? While the parents were stomach sick, we had one plan and that was to do the most with $100. We looked up "Best Things to Explore in London" and kept ourselves busy for the day taking every type of transportation possible. We journeyed off on castle tours, walked around Buckingham Palace, and over to Big Ben towards the end. We, unfortunately, only had money left over for 1 person to ride in the London Eye so we trekked home.


As I am older and experiencing London over and over, it gives you the perfect long- weekend trip. Getting lost in this city is so fun and you never know what spontaneous teas you will end up at. My favorite is the top of Harrods but the food court in Harrods cannot be missed. I still dream about the cheese section, it's iconic. I could quarantine in that place for decades if needed. Just go, you will thank me.


It's So Iconic....


Whether you're a seasoned globetrotter or a first-time adventurer, London is one of those places you have to visit in your life. Don't you want a picture in a red telephone booth acting like you are calling your parents? I will say it again, ICONIC. The city's blend of English-speaking familiarity and global diversity creates a welcoming environment. Navigating the famous Tube, engaging with locals in bustling markets, and marveling at the fusion of cultures provide a seamless transition into the world of international travel.


London's reputation as a shopping mecca is well-deserved, offering retail therapy that ranges from high-end luxury to quirky boutiques. From the regal elegance of Oxford Street to the eclectic boutiques of Covent Garden, shopping in London is a delight for fashionistas and treasure hunters alike. The trendy Carnaby Street showcases cutting-edge style, while King's Road invites you to explore chic designer boutiques. Get those wrists ready to carry some heavy bags back home.


For food recommendations, there are 3 restaurants you have to eat at before you consider your trip complete. Ivy Asia is renowned for its fine cuisine but is definitely on the more expensive side. If you are looking for an upscale restaurant with a funky but delicious menu, take a look at eating at ROVI (pictures below). Lastly, I love the vibes at Chiltern Firehouse and sitting inside at the bar. London offers such a diverse amount of cuisines so you can't go wrong! 


All budgets are welcome here too. You can ball out or stay on the reserved side since most of the major attractions are free and viewed from a distance. But just know, if you ever get the chance to be that 1 person to go on the London Eye, let someone else go because it's so touristy anyways!


For 6 Reasons On Why You Should Visit London:

  1. I said it once and I will say it again, to experience Harrods.

  2. Enjoy Thames River and what both sides have to offer in terms of site seeing

  3. Best shopping that you can't get anywhere else

  4. Transportation methods are super easy to get around

  5. Adele is from there so your chances of running into her are high

  6. High Tea that you cannot experience elsewhere

You deserve to be Gone, let me plan your next vacation!
