England: Top Things To Do During A Weekend In London

Even as Brits we love nothing more than a weekend in London. We live up in rural East Yorkshire and yes we have cities close by, but nothing compares to the hustle and bustle of The Big Smoke. London is super accessible with numerous airports, the Eurostar terminal and direct train routes from all over the country, making it a great destination for a day trip, weekend, or even longer, budget dependant of course.

5 Troubles You Don’t Want To Face on a Foreign Destination Stag Do

As wedding season approaches, it is likely that (hen and) stag weekends galore are being planned.

Product Review: Thermos Light and Compact Flask, 0.35L

I’ve got a confession. I may have ‘borrowed’ Mr ESLT’s flask a few months ago and I may have misplaced it, ok I did misplace it, but never told him.
