Discover the Largest Collection of British Art

Rather deceptively the British Museum houses art and artifacts from around the world, not British art as the name might suggest.  For that you’d have to head to Tate Britain.  The gallery, located in South London on the Thames at Millibank, is a part of the Tate network of galleries in England, including Tate Modern,…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Night time

I love exploring cities at night.  There is a completely different energy and vibe and depending on the city it may be a necessary relief from hoards of people about in the day. This photo was taken during my first trip to Berlin in 2010.  It was a chilly night, we had been exploring all…

Road Tripping: Discovering the Cotswolds

Green rolling hills, farm life and clean air.  Visiting the English countryside is always a welcomed break from London.  It was especially nice when I took this trip in July as it was at the beginning of rather warm weather in the city.  I love when it’s hot, but London can’t handle it with most…

Taking A Glimpse into London’s Eerie Past

There was certainly something strange going on in London.  From Jack the Ripper, to torture at the Tower of London, to sites around the capital that were mass graves London was a veritable city of murder and mayhem in bygone times.  It was grim but the visitor who likes the slightly macabre or ‘dark tourism‘…

Hastings: A Historic Little Town by the Sea

Getting out of London to relax and recharge is the best way to cope with the everyday stressors of the city.  Coming to the end of May we nearly forgot we had a second bank holiday in the month.  With some free time off from work and a desire to explore somewhere new outside of…

Walking London: Little Venice & the Canal

Besides being a huge tourist pull London is also a great transit hub to get elsewhere fast.  You can fly to Morocco in less than 3 hours and other incredible destinations are only a few hours away.  But what of the desire to escape to a new place without leaving London?  Easy, what I do…

The Best of British: Holidaying in the UK

As July begins it is hard to believe that we are half way through the year and that I have already been and returned from Canada.  I’ve come back with renewed resolve to finally make some choices on other areas of my life and shift my focus away from constantly thinking about where I will…

Here There Everywhere and A Giveway

As you will have noticed there are a few changes around here as of late.  The most important one is the name Wanderlust is no more and I have renamed my blog to Here There Everywhere.  It has been some time now that I’ve grown tired of Wanderlust and as one of my favorite travel…

Catch FIFA World Cup 2014 Fever Anywhere

For the past few weeks I’ve been catching up with family and friends in Canada so it has been pretty quiet on the blog.  The World Cup kicked off last Thursday and I seem to have forgotten that Canada, well Toronto specifically goes crazy for the event. It is a great time to be in…

Quiz Time: In the UK or Further Away

When I was shown pictures of Cornwall years ago I couldn’t believe that a place like it existed in England.  Three years later I’ve now explored many other destinations in the UK and discovered the hugely diverse landscape.  I moved here the year of the economic down turn and the buzz word quickly became staycation….
