Since coming to Britain already more than a year (that time flies) I wanted to visit Bath, one of the most beautiful cities in this country, and world famous for appearing in the books of Jane Austen. I think I had never mentioned so far in the blog, but I'm a geek of his books and everything related to the time of the Regency, so you can imagine how much I liked this trip.

Bath is a city in southwest England, with about 90.000 Settled people do anything unless 2.800 years by King Bladud, father of King Lear (who later inspired a play by Shakespeare). Today is a typical English town, littered with monuments and buildings made especially 300 years and a special charm on every street, that have declared to be Heritage UNESCO.

My trip only lasted a day, but it was more than enough to visit the main attractions in Bath. We started the morning at the Parade Gardens, quite picturesque gardens on the banks of the River Avon, perfect for my getting into the vintage vibe. Admission is 1.20 pounds per person.

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:
