the scotch whisky experience

I LOVE Whisky. I have been drinking it since I can remember. I’m usually more of a bourbon drinker, but when I was planning my trip to Scotland, I knew I had to go and learn about scotch whisky.

But I wanted…

After traveling for over 24 hours and then walking uphill with a fifty pound suitcase, I was relieved to arrive at such a gorgeous place with the friendliest staff. Immediately upon arrival and checking in, my bag was taken right to my room. One of the women from reception even walked me right to my door. Before leaving, she asked me…

London was amazing… It’s always been one of my favorite cities and its one of the few places I have no problem going back to time and time again. There is always some different area to explore and something new to discover. Hopefully it won’t be too long until I can return. London is one of those places that I could see myself moving to or spending an extended period of time there. There is just something about it that…

Its perhaps one of the best views of the bridge. Make sure you cross the bridge as well by foot! People often confuse this bridge with London Bridge, but London Bridge is actually just a few miles down the Thames River from here.          …
