INTRODUCING LILY'S LONDON

After a lot of umming and ahhing, I’ve decided to take a fresh crack at blogging. So, why Lily’s London? Why not just continue with Lily Blogs Life? Well, there are a few reasons for that.

ONE SECOND EVERYDAY

After spending a full year chronicling my travels around the world, I fell at the final hurdle. We returned home on 15th March and, after one last-ditch attempt to get everything I’d experienced up on the blog in the form of my Florida post, I became rather distracted. I returned home to friends, family, a new flat and – rather unexpectedly – a job offer to write for one of my favourite websites, Secret London.

THE SUNSHINE STATE

We touched down in Miami on the 16th of January feeling very jet-lagged, but looking forward to the next leg of our journey. I’ve been dreaming about taking a road trip around the USA for years, so this was the moment I had been waiting for. We had arrived!

COFFEE AND COCKTAILS

Our last stop in South America was Colombia, and as we were left with a bit of extra time in Bogotá, we did some research and decided to head to Salento - a town in Zona Cafetera famous for it’s coffee. We chose to stay in a hostel called Luciérnaga which we’d recommend despite it’s rather patchy wifi connection! The must-do in Salento is a coffee farm tour and there are loads to choose from. After a bit of research we settled on Finca Don Eduardo, the coffee farm attached to The Plantation House hostel, which ran tours in English everyday at 9am.
