One week from today I will be all packed and ready to go on our London adventure. I’m incredibly excited and have been planning our trip off and on for about two months now. Our flight across the Atlantic can’t get here soon enough! I think if there was one more month, my list of what to do would double in size.
Last week I shared seven blogs that are perfect for planning your international travels. While many of the blogs on that list share informative posts about destinations on almost every continent, sometimes you want to get specific. That’s been the case as I am planning our London adventure. So today I have four London bloggers who share great insight on what to do on a London adventure.
I’ve been following Lauren’s journey at Aspiring Kennedy for a loooong time. She shares not only the nitty gritty of her expat life in London but travel guides to places all over Europe. She’s also the mom of three of the most adorable children so she’s constantly sharing kid-friendly tips for London and traveling abroad. What really helped me out as I was planning our London trip was her pretty pictures and practical tips for exploring the Notting Hill neighborhood. I’m so excited that our hotel is situated right in the middle of it!
Liberty London Girl
I stumbled upon Sasha’s blog, Liberty London Girl, when I was looking for more information about the WB Harry Potter studio tours because, duh. I fell in love with her London lifestyle posts. She shares lots of delicious recipes in addition to posts about little spots in and around London. Plus she has the cutest little dog, Lettice.
The London Thing
One of the ways I find local bloggers for a city is by doing a simple google search. More often than not city publications share lists of local influencers. I comb through to find the ones that fit my needs. Tania of The London Thing is based in London, but has since branched out to global travel posts. However, she shares a lot of posts about Shoreditch, the trendy London neighborhood that I can’t wait to explore.
Do you want to see the cutest lifestyle London lifestyle blog? Then you’ve got to check out Poppy Loves. I’m obsessed with how easy her navigation menu is to find exactly what you need to know about London life. She has one of the most comprehensive sites I found for doing and seeing like a Londoner.
Finding blogs for the city you’re headed to makes it feel like you have a friend in the city before you even go. While I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of the tourist spots like Big Ben and the London Eye, I’m also looking forward to seeing London the way the natives do. I can’t believe the trip is almost here!
