Today is Daydream Destination Day, and today’s dream destination is London!
While London isn’t a tropical escape, our contributor, Amanda, explains why it was a Daydreams Destination for her!
London holds a special place for me. I had not traveled on an airplane prior to college, and I really had only been up and down the East Coast by car.
However, during my last semester of college, I studied abroad. Going anywhere extreme was not in my grasp yet, as it was a huge step for me to even choose to move overseas for a semester. I figured I should stick to a language I knew…(small steps…) So, I studied in London.
This experience literally changed my entire life.
What did I learn?
London was the springboard for learning that I loved travel. I wouldn’t know otherwise. It introduced me to a piece of myself that is so deep, yet I had not accessed.
I also learned that this world was so much bigger than I had experienced. It allowed me to see things in a new light. It was incredibly foundational for me.
Why would I recommend London?
London is a wonderful way to experience travel in a way that is expected, and I think it’s especially great if you are new to travel. It’s a huge city, with anything accessible at any point and if you’re an English-speaker, you don’t have a language barrier. The museums, tourist attractions and regal nature of the architecture is stunning, and using the city as a springboard for other great areas liken Stonehenge, Leeds Castle, and Bath is a great idea!
