My Favourite Places in London

If you asked me which city or town in England is my favorite, I would say London without any hesitation. There are some other towns and cities in England that offer a lot to those who choose to visit them, but I personally believe that not that many other places in the UK can so easily compete with everything that London has to offer in terms of entertainment and amusement. None of them come even close and they pale in comparison with London.

London is a bustling place that offers something to everybody. You will know how true this statement is once you go straight to places that offer you serviced apartments to rent. I have been to London a few times before and I do not ever recall being bored with everything that the city has to offer. As a matter of fact, there are still many tourist attractions that I have not visited yet, but I guess I will leave them for the time when I am going to visit the city of London during my next trip and stay in one of the many short term rentals in London.

If I were to give you some advice what is absolutely mandatory to visit in London, I would say the Tower of London. This is simply one of those places that should never be missed or ignored. This historical site has so much to offer to visitors that I usually recommend it to anybody who asks me what is worth seeing in the capital city of England.

Every time I am in London in one of the holiday rentals, I do not have a lot of time to visit all those places I would like to see. I usually have to make up my mind and only choose those places that are worth while and that are mandatory to see for every tourist who comes to the city. One solution to the problem might be sightseeing tours, which are guaranteed to show you around and thanks to which you will not miss anything important.

Traveling to Australia

I would like you to know that traveling to Australia has always been one of my dreams and I am still hoping that one day this dream is going to come true. I look forward to this day and I am already planning all those activities I am going to take part in the moment I set foot on Australian soil.

There are many fantastic opportunities awaiting people like me in Australia. I have seen so many documentaries about the place that I really know the place even though I have never been there myself. It is a good feeling as when I finally get there I am going to be a lot more familiar with all those places.

One of the first things I am going to do once I am already in Australia will be to contact Melbourne Victoria Tours and take one of the tours they have on offer. Who knows, maybe I am going to take part in more than one tour during my stay in Australia. All I can tell you right now is that I am ready for all the adventures awaiting me there and I really look forward to all of them. The company I have just mentioned has some great tours that I simply cannot miss. One of them is Great Ocean Road Tour. It is hard for me to imagine traveling over 400km (about 250 miles) in one day, but I guess it is doable. The Great Ocean Road Tour is absolutely spectacular and I cannot wait to see all those beautiful views opening in front of me. This definitely is going to be one of the first things I am going to do in Australia and I am really happy that this is the case so stay tuned because one day I am going to write a post about my adventures in Australia.

Traveling to USA

Traveling to USA is a dream of many people out there including myself. Since so many people watch TV (including myself), they have a chance to watch how life looks like in the USA. They are encouraged to see some of the greatest places in the USA and they want to make their dreams come true.

There are many countries in Europe the citizens of which don’t need a visa to be able to travel to the USA. The UK is one of those countries and I have to tell you that I am really glad that this is the case. In order to travel from the UK to USA all a person needs to do is to complete all the necessary paperwork in order to obtain a permit known as esta. there is no need to apply for a visa and become rejected at the first opportunity as it is the case of many other countries such as Poland for example. Maybe it is hard to get to the USA from Poland, but it is definitely so much easier once you are a British citizen.

If you already know that your passage to the USA is guaranteed, all you need to do is to choose the attractions you will want to see during your visit to the country. This is the nice part about visiting the USA as you get to choose from so many locations available to you. Personally, one of my favorite places in the USA is Florida, so I would definitely start my American adventures there. There are also many other places that I would like to visit such as numerous cities in the states of California or Texas, but Florida definitely makes the top of the list and cannot be beaten by any other place in the US.
