Ok, so technically Kew Gardens is in London but its on the outskirts so a few hours spent here makes you feel you are in the calmest corner of the world away from the chaos of the city. My friend Liz and I still had some time off from work around the holidays, (you know because European employers like to give their employees more than just a day or two off around Christmas) and I had heard wonderful things about Kew Gardens from my boss.
My first week in London I found a job and all I needed was a home for the next six months. Searching from hostel computers, my friends and I did find a home but we didn’t expect it to be filled with 20 other people.
Our travel secrets. Whether they be a place, person, or thing, we are willing to share them with others because we want them to enjoy these secrets as much as we did. Tripbase has asked travel writers to share their 3 best kept travel secrets. A chain reaction has started revolving around this project with writers tagging writers and thanks to Suzy Guese for tagging me. I hope you enjoy my 3 secrets because they all hold a special place in my heart for one reason or another.
