It’s been a few weeks since I posted a ‘Travel Snap’ so this is long overdue! During a recent river cruise on a rainy day in London I took this image through the window as we passed the Houses of Parliament.

These cruises are a great way to see London. Relax and take it easy while still taking in the sights of this wonderful city including the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Tower of London, the Cutty Sark and so much more. There are a number of different options to choose from and you’ll find more information on a variety of cruises on the website Visit London.

Travel Planning Resources

Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.
