Monday's Mail Memo - Travel Planning

Airline tickets have been purchased, hotels have been books, and these exciting pocket guides showed up in the mail today!

So excited to be planning an upcoming vacation! Please share your tips and not-to-be missed attractions, eateries, and/or activities for these three locations in the comments.


  1. I've been to all three cities---loved them---but so long ago that no recommendations would be worth much! Besides I was staying in youth hostels, and I'll bet your accommodations will be considerably better. What a fun trip to be planning!

  2. A three city break, how lovely! How long will you be in London for? And funnily enough, I was just suggesting Amsterdam as a short time during the October half-term!

  3. Having only done London - and not being a big fan of big cities to begin with... take a tour bus package outside of London - we did one that took us to Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral that I greatly enjoyed. Within London - spend a day seeing the iconic sights - Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, etc. We did the Buckingham Palace tour as well and to be quite honest I didn't love it - image the dining room of the Southfork Ranch on steroids - a lot of gilding, opulence, and over-indulgent display of wealth. I much preferred the castles that were basically ruins! If you have the opportunity and can get tickets, I HIGHLY recommend the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play. If I had the opportunity to go back again I would do one of the Harry Potter day tours where you get to see the sites where the movies were filmed.

  4. Sounds like a great trip. Hope you have so much fun!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
