Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel! As I’ve mentioned before, I have not been to every destination (unfortunately), but do get questions from friends and other blog readers on all sort of travel destination questions. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to Maui, The Greek Islands, Pacific Coast Highway, Argentina /Buenos Aires, Costa Rica, Cape Cod & The Islands,Iceland, Geneva, Canadian Rockies, Rome, Israel, Peru / Inca Trail ,Stockholm,Chicago, Paris, Hanoi, Austin, Puerto Rico, Bruges, Salzburg, Istanbul, Las Vegas, Jamaica, India/Golden Triangle, Auckland, Singapore, Moscow, The Oregon Coast,Seattle, Portland, Hawaii Islands, Alaska Skiing, Brazil, Prague, Budapest,Paraguay, Cabo San Lucas, Edinburgh, San Diego, Hilton Head, Dubrovnik, Tanzania, The Seychelles, Belize, and Miami, and Vienna.
So this weeks travel destination includes London. I received the following email from reader A.K.:
“I recently booked my first award flight, I will be going to London for 8 days in the spring!! It will be my first trip to Europe. I was looking into which neighborhood (and hotel) I should stay in London, and got overwhelmed by all the possibilities. I don’t need the hustle and bustle of the West End, but I would like to be fairly close to the tube or railroad. Unfortunately, I haven’t racked up any hotel points yet, so if you know of any options that are moderately priced that would be great. Also any off the beaten paths must do activities? Thanks for your help!!”
If you’ve ever been to London and have any recommendations, let’s help out reader A.K. by commenting below. I personally have stayed at the Marriott Renaissance (which is no longer part of the chain) and the Le Meridian – both in different but great locations. Also, while London is expensive, I also found I was able to see a lot without spending too much money.
Also, if you have any upcoming travel where you need some help, feel free to email me at email@example.com to be a featured “Help a Reader Travel” Monday special. Thanks!
