Someone once said that anyone who is tired of London, is tired of living, and he was right. The British capital can boast of offering thousands of activities for everyone throughout the year, and also many free. If you are living, or you are just visiting the city, y the STO has all typical sights of London, set off to mingle with Londoners in any of their events.

Of these, in my opinion, There are five events that no visitor should miss:

1. Wimbledon. Every year Wimbledon Stars Telediarios and newspapers, and that is good you like tennis or not, The tournament is a spectacle that all brings together thousands of people for two weeks on this section of London. To get tickets, Visit the official website between August and December, or if you have left it to the last minute, try to get some resale.

Lately I get quite a few stories of people who have had problems with the hotel we had booked in London: sudden and unexplained increases in fares, rooms that resemble neither the website, overbookings… In my opinion there is no magic formula to avoid take a surprise upon arrival, except I choose carefully (the area is very important, for example) and fixed on reviews from former guests.

Anyway, Spaniards tend to believe that a hotel is always the best accommodation that we can find, and elsewhere will be a “cuchitril”. In London, and UK general, this is not true at all, as there are types of accommodation to suit all budgets and tastes, and are often much better than a hotel.

These are the best known:

The cheapest option is usually a youth hostel, where several people unknown to each other sharing a room: is much larger room, less pay. They usually have bunk beds and rooms are only boys or only girls, unless you rent an entire room (that group travel, for example), so it is not usually the best option for traveling solo. For me, The biggest advantage, other than price, is the chance to meet other travelers and to comment on people who are visiting the same city as you.

London is the city of fashion 2012. A few weeks ago the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth celebrated and in less than a month will begin the Olympics. It is always a good time to visit the city, but certainly, this year, the British capital will show its best to the world, so do not hesitate, resérvale and at least one weekend holiday.

Despite being the largest city in Europe, the main attractions are relatively close to each other, so with a little help from the metro in two days you should be able to visit the most important places. After living here for over a year, I would advise the following plan to visit London in a weekend:

DAY 1

Travel begins soaking English spirit and go see the Big Ben y Westminster (metro: Inestminster). If you do not eat breakfast in the hotel and you are eager, test an all day breakfast in a pub, as St Stephen’s Tavern, right in front of the tower on the corner, with stunning views and very normal prices. Keep the check crossed the bridge and walk to the London Eye, where by 15 pounds can enjoy unforgettable views of London. Another much cheaper option to see the city from above is to keep walking along the Thames to the Tate, Museum of Modern Art, and go to the cafeteria on the top floor. All Free.

It's been a year since the last post, in which I've been writing nothing and with a little blog (good, quite) abandoned, in which my life has completely changed and I've been without much time for anything, but the time has come to publish again! 🙂

I was always of those people wanting to live in another country and, since I can remember, United Kingdom was my favorite. So while I was working in Spain and decided to leave to come to this cold and wet country, and the truth is I'm happier every day here.

If you are also one of the thousands of Spaniards who are considering exile in London or elsewhere in UK, Maybe you can give some of advice:
