The day came when I finally visited Tuscany! I had long longed for this dreamy destination after seeing so many movies that feature it: Under The Tuscan Sun, Life is Beautiful, Stealing Beauty, etc and just word out there about how wonderful it is.
Tuscany Roadtrip Itinerary: How to get to and around Tuscany
The best way to get around Tuscany is with a car as there are so many small towns to visit not easily reachable with other forms of transportation, so for my visit to Tuscany I planned a roadtrip itinerary which came out just perfect. I recommend you book a car using Rentalcars, get full insurance, and avoid Goldcar and any other brands that are ridiculously cheap and not international. I’ve heard horror stories from them. On my trip to Tuscany I got Alamo and it was perfect, you’ll be fine with any other well known brands such as Avis, Budget, Europcar, Enterprise,Hertz, National, etc.
Disclaimer: I wrote this article on the Bermondsey Beer Mile as I was starting my travel + London blog and it became insanely popular. As such, I will update it every 2 months as there are more and more breweries appearing in the are by the minute. The last updated date is at the top of the article.
Are you a beer fan and a londoner? Or maybe just a beer fan visiting the city? Then you must not miss the Bermondsey Beer Mile!
Turns out that Bermondsey has become the hub for microbreweries in London. And the good news for you is that they open on Saturday, and some on Sunday, so you can go taste their golden liquid right from the brewery. What’s even better is that they are conveniently located in a straight line over a mile. Hence why it’s called the Bermondsey Beer Mile. That, my friend, makes the perfect beer crawl.
Scared of getting hungry? Well fear not. There are also three food markets conveniently located along the Bermondsey Beer Mile. I’ve created a map for you to follow and I’ll walk you through the whole thing.
Don’t want to do this on your own? Luckily the folks at UK Brewery Tours have got you covered with three amazing tours of the Bermondsey Beer Mile area:
Bermondsey Microbrewery Experience: My top pick! Visit a number of breweries on the Bermondsey Beer Mile, learn about how beer is made, tour the equipment, speak to the brewers and sample the beers straight from the taproom. It’s been going on since 2014.
Journey to the Underworld was the first Funicular Productions immersive experience I went to. As an immersive experience lover, I have this itch to attend all of them and Journey to the Underworld had great reviews. Also, I had peeked the menu in their website and it looked amazing. And they are able to cater for vegans!
I arrived to Pedley Street Station in Hackney where the experience was to take place and was greeted by a rather zombie-like man in the ticket office who gave us the ticket so that we could shortly board the train. His assistant monsters took our coats and bags.
Pablo and I decided to visit Israel and Jordan in 2 weeks. We planned this 2 week Israel & Jordan itinerary using information from other bloggers and it turned out to be a lot better than expected. We loved every place we visited and every hotel we stayed on! See a break down of our Israel & Jordan itinerary as well as recommendations on what to do each day below. Heads up that it includes a super fun road trip.
2 weeks in Israel and Jordan – Daily Breakdown
Days 1 & 2: Jerusalem
It might seem weird not to start the Israel trip in Tel Aviv, but we actually arrived to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport during Shabbat and took a Nesher Sherut to Jerusalem directly which takes around an hour.
