England Vlog

Watch my England Vlog ! In January, I was able to go to England to visit my friend Tom for a week. It was really fun though I wouldn’t really want to go again. London was way too overpriced and I prefer Rome instead.¬†If you want to catch up on my England travel posts then you can view them here ūüôā This was my first ever video that I made so I’m very proud of it, although you can obviously see how “new” I was at making videos! When I travel in the summer, then I’ll be sure to post up even more videos!¬†My rome files were erased, so all the clips I took were lost ūüė¶¬† 1. On the way to England – See all the yummy food I got to eat on the plane! 2. Brighton Pier – Regency Restaurant¬†– My first time having FISH AND CHIPS. Delicious! 3. Ultimate favorite – Bourough Market¬†– A Marketplace for freshly made food, everything was so delicious – also featuring my HUGE burger. See the rest …

Last day in London!

Morning everyone! It’s 12:27 AM and I slept a good 16 hours today – talk about major jetlag. I decided not to go to Japan because I don’t want to be inside an airplane for another month. Can you believe I’ve been on an airplane for almost 60 hours in a month and a half?¬†Gotta say it… traveling is fun but the best bed to sleep in at night is at home.¬†Anyway, in order to post about Rome I have to finish posting about London so here is everything we did our last day there! You can probably tell this post will be rushed… just a little, because I can’t wait to tell you all the places we went to in Rome!¬† Natural History Museum Out of all the places… this was my favorite landmark! It was huge and amazing. We saw many students on field trips and I was just terribly jealous, if I went here at a young age I would have been mindblown! It took us about 3 hours or more to …

Kensignton Palace

  Price:¬†¬£16.50 /¬†¬£15.40 (online) TIP: Make sure to pick up the brochure at all the major train stations called “TWO FOR ONE LONDON.”¬†It’s basically a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE TICKET to most landmarks and attractions.¬†Keep your eye out for it because not a lot of people know about it.¬† This was the first place we visited in London. It was quite easy to get to, just get off at “Kensignton” Exit. ¬†We actually bought Mcdonalds and got their coffee… it was horrible! I joked that the Mcdonalds in America tasted so much better probably due to the copious amounts of sugar we put in… hehe.¬† To get there, we had to go through a park which was quite nice. Make sure to take a photo at one of the telephone booths outside!   Tip: If you’re carrying your heavy coats, be sure to check it in at the coat room. It’s free if you show your ticket to the front desk clerk. Overall I didn’t really have that great of a time. I mean …

My England Vlog!

My First Ever Video! Since Christmas just passed, I wanted to thank you all for following me and for all the support. It has officially been a year since I’ve joined WordPress! To celebrate, I put together a little something. This is my first video, and I made it under 10 minutes so hopefully my videos will get a bit better and I’ll make more videos in the future.¬†I’m not in the video, but next time I’ll make sure to be in my videos… so you guys can meet my sister, Jennifer instead!¬† My favorite part of the video was of course, Borough’s Market and our huge burger! And excuse the music, I had a limited list to choose from. Happy holidays and have a great new year! I’ll be spending it with Brandon again ūüôā¬†

On our way to England!

  En route… England! As you all know, I’ve only been home for about less than two weeks – so I’m severely jet lagged. I’m actually surprised I haven’t developed an addiction to Nyquil yet since I take it so regularly now.¬†Also, I’m still recovering from Taiwan where I became deadly ill.¬†As my sister reaches the old age of 24, she won’t be able to travel for free so… we decided to take some last minute trips to Europe.¬†Her flights will end on January 12th, so we both expect to do some traveling before then.¬† I don’t really have any warm clothing since our winter in California is like Hong Kong’s winter.¬†On the day of our flight, we rushed to Sears and bought me some boots before heading home to quickly pack. I packed¬†two peacoats¬†and one sweater. That was seriously all the winter clothing I had! Also, thanks to Nancy and Sham I was able to have two gloves and one scarf.¬†We arrived to Heathrow airport on Monday, and left on Friday.¬† I’m typing this …
