Cycle Touring in the UK - Travel for a Living

Ever thought about cycle touring in the UK? No? Well me neither. I mean, I have started a tiny bit of cycling last year and have done a few rides with Mr T at home and on holiday (like our day trip from San Francisco to Sausalito for example). But sitting on my bike for days on end? I don’t think so.

Let me be straight with you here. Yes, it is me writing this post, but it wasn’t me actually doing the 3-day bike tour from Cambridge to Norfolk. It was Mr T putting in the effort. I am just here to tell you all about his first ever cycling tour.

So, if you are thinking of cycle touring in the UK, maybe this will help you a little.

Ten Things to do on Isle of Wight

10 things to see on the Isle of Wight - Travel for a Living

The Isle of Wight is one of my favourite places in England. Located in the English Channel, just a few miles south of Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight is England’s largest island with approx. 23 miles (37 km) across. And whilst it is just a 20-minute ferry ride away, going down to the island for a weekend feels like a completely different world. Perfect for winding down and recharging one’s batteries. So, whether you plan a weekend trip to the Isle of Wight or want to spend a week camping, here are my 10 things to do on the Isle of Wight.

London in Four Days – The perfect itinerary for first timers

London in four days - Travel for a Living

Last summer my goddaughter and her mum visited me here in London for the very first time. They were here for four days, so you can imagine that we had a rather full schedule to ensure they see the best of London in just four days.

Needless to say, four days is nowhere near enough to really see and experience all of London, but it is just about sufficient to give you a first overview and visit at least some of the most famous sights of London.

So, if you are planning your first trip to London, maybe this four-day itinerary for London might come useful.

Obviously, you can switch and swap as much as you like, no need to stick to a certain order or completing it all.-
