From Antigua’s paradise we flew to London via NYC. We only stopped for one night in NYC to stay at a hotel close to JFK airport (Radisson Hotel JFK Airport), but that was plenty of time for bed bugs to get us. In all of my years backpacking and travelling I had never experienced the frustration of bed bug bites before, and can now empathise with so many wanderers.
Our hotel room in London (at The Cavendish) welcomed us with sweeping views over London while being on the door step to the most central part of the city. With less than 24 hours in London this was vital for us to make the most of every moment while still catching up with friends, on laundry and skyping home.
Dating a foodie (aka Food Feels) definitely has its perk with him introducing me to new brunch and lunch spots around each city I thought I was already familiar with. One of his favourites is The Breakfast Club in Soho, but I still prefer Dishoom in Shoreditch.
