british-10k-review6
Last Sunday, on a very hot and very sunny day in central London, I saw the top London attractions in a way I had never seen them before: through drops of intense sweat and also maybe a couple tears. You see, the story starts a couple months ago when I…
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review 2
If you’ve just  come out from under the rock you’ve been hiding under, you might not know that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets are some of the hardest seats to get in London right now (and have been since they were released). If you’ve been paying a modicum…
