Every time I log into this little blog of mine, chat to folks on Twitter or get a like on Facebook, I feel so thankful to have lovely readers who keep me posting. I love writing about travel and our city break adventures, and now we have a new city to call home and explore. Expect more posts about all the ace stuff you can find in Leeds really soon.
I thought it was time to reflect on some of the most popular posts on This City Life, so here are the top 10 travel posts – as clicked and shared by you lovely readers!
I slept with 200 people at the Natural History Museum – wheeey! You really haven’t lived unless you’ve woken up to the really confusing sound of three Velociraptors’ screeching calls. I half hoped all the exhibitions had come to life in the night – just half. Sleeping over at NHM London really was the experience of a lifetime. My little dinosaur obsessed brain still dreams about it!
This is one of the most searched for posts on the blog. I guess because so many people want to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour! It’s been updated a few times since I wrote this post, which just means I need to go back and re-write my review, right guys? Right?!
From walking tours and picnics to free comedy and views from the highest heights, I jotted down five of the best ways to enjoy a cheaper London. You really don’t have to spend a fortune, even in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
This post on the best pizza in Rome is also a hit with search engines. So many people have asked about it on Twitter, and a friend even send this recommendation to their cousin while they were asking for restaurant recommendations. Real Italian pizza in Rome really is indescribable. It’s a wonder how I stopped eating to tell you guys about it.
Where do you go for relaxed and not-at-all-wanky cocktails in London? Seven at Brixton of course! In at number 5, it’s my review of those delicious mocktails and Churros on #ThirstyThursday. Seven at Brixton use ginger ale instead of fresh mint in their mojitos. Inspired!
A post that still makes me smile thinking about it, I recounted the moment my other half proposed to me while the sun set over the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Hey – are you crying?! It’s ok, I am too. Again.
Los Angeles was a funny one for me, and I think you guys want all the tips you can get as it appears frequently in my recently searched list. I wrote down everything you should (and shouldn’t do) when you’ve got just 24 hours to explore LA.
Berlin is one of the best places to enjoy a holiday on a budget. There are so many free things to do in beautiful Berlin, and you get the same experience of the culture, people and amazing architecture. I love sharing this post on Twitter, so give it some link love if you like it too.
Another post that appears a lot in my searched list – a weekend in Barcelona feels so long ago. It’s a trip that inspired my love of patatas bravas and the beautiful Spanish sunshine. Oh, and the Gaudí stuff wasn’t too bad either…
I absolutely love that we went all the way to San Francisco and set aside a whole afternoon to make our way to the mothership – Apple HQ in Sunnyvale. The best part is the journey is still the same! If you made it all the way to 1 Infinite Loop with my help, please email me – I’d love to know if it’s as easy to follow as I think it is.
