18 year old-what to do?

by profuselycool

Hi everyone, I'm a brand new user here at VT, and have been obsessed since last night. What a great site! Anyways, I have so many questions to ask and am just not getting started.

In a couple of weeks I'll be doing a trip to Paris, Normandy, and the Riviera with my family. But even better, i'll be meeting a good friend in London for a week in which we will be exploring the city and maybe surrounding areas for day trips.

I'm 18 (almost 19) and love going out meeting new people, partying, drinking and mingling with locals. I have a deep love of history so I'm really in to the cool "off the beaten path" destinations in European towns. If any of you have any input on what my friend and I should do please let me know! (or if you'll be over there and want to hang out hit me up too.)

You want to mix history, meeting locals and trying great beer? The "Dick Whittingon Ale Trail", which we stumbled upon by chance last summer, is a listing of several dozen historic and/or interesting pubs that are noted on a free map with contact information on each. Maybe it is clever marketing, but the few pubs we looked into were enjoyable.

The thing I liked about the map was that it was easy to locate places to see that were already on my walking itinerary of London. The pubs are all indexed by neighborhood and plotted on the map. If only I had more time, I would have liked to see more pubs and try the variety of ales and bitters served.

Definitely a lot of things to do around London for a week, but if you want nice day trips, you could also visit the very nice Belgian city of Brugges which is easily reached by train and can be a day trip. It was fun walking in this very picturesque city, going up the city tower for a panoramic view and riding a boat in the canals...I also enjoyed going to Amsterdam for a day from London - very interesting city and it's not just about legal marijuana and the Red Light District -- there's a lot of history (ANN Frank from Holocaust times) and Art (Van Gogh museum) as well....have fun and welcome to VT again from your fellow Rookie, Norman :)

Keep an eye on the VT meetings pages, cool. I can see that there are meetings in London in both June & July, and there's possibly something happening in some of the European cities as well. You will meet some great VT'rs in person that way, and get some great advice on things to do.

Travel Tips for London

The absolutly 'MUST' for me...

by Kauai

The absolutly 'MUST' for me was going straight into a pub and take a Guinness ! Thats the way to start !!

* The British Museum is absolutly great - if you´re interested in Egypt for ex. The exhibition is incredible !

* The London eye ( 9 pounds ) - a great view over London

* Kensington Gardens to relax from the noise of the city (take some unsalted (!!!) peanuts with you, there are friendly squirrels !! Entering Kensington Gardens and meeting some super friendly squirrels and an old men (87 !!) who was telling me about the latest news of the Royals.
What I miss in Austria, and loved in London are the musicians in the tube, the streets and everywhere. There are some great talents !!
And there is no chocolat bar here like in the 2nd floor of HARRODS - Delicious !

Trafalgar Square

by OrlandoBR

Every city has its landmarks, and sometimes these are places where there's nothing to do - but you must see it anyway. So, a visit to London, be it the first or the 100th time, is always incomplete without a stop or at least a glance at Trafalgar Square. If you're bored of staring at the Nelson obelisk or feeding the pigeons, just cross the street and get to the National Gallery or St.-Martin-in-the-Fields.

London Eye

by JUNLI

London Eye
Apparently the biggest Ferris Wheel in the world, this is the best view of the London skyline you're going to get short of flying around in a light aircraft.

It moves pretty slowly (about 20 minutes to get all the way round once), and you're totally enclosed in a gondola, but even so, it's not for people who are afraid of heights.

7-THINGS EGYPTIAN SHOULD KNOW...

by egyptianhunk

7-THINGS EGYPTIAN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT life and customs there especially if u were travelling to europe for the first time:-

1)-don't try to break any law..no matter who you are or what you did..they will get you....
2)-WOMEN there take the first step .if u seemed to be handsome,and attractive they would take the first step always remember ... don't try to be funny or to show your sense of humor with those ladies even if they seemed to be very attracted to you..it could be taken as a hassle or harrsment from you...,respect your self and they will respect you,

3)-DON'T hug or kiss any male in public unless you want them to think you are a gay.i know that doesn't sound a serious issue in egypt as all of the males kiss and hug each others but in western countries please forget this habbit.

4)-DON'T make any frienship with ARAB or MUSLIMs there unless you trust them . many of extreme muslims lives in england ...don't put your self in trouble.however london is full by milions of respectable persons but always take care.

5)- (london it's self is full by multi-ethnic groups from africa-latin america and asia_ so don't show your sympathy towards any case regarding religions.or politics ..the law is very sensitie towards any racist behaviour or action

6)-RESPECT animals there .they don't shoot brids like here in egypt so respect their customs.you would go to prison if u kicked a dog or even tried to annoy him.

7)-FORGET every thing been tuaght to yiu in egypt about driving..PLEASE CHECK MY OTHER CULTURE TRIPS FOR 10 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFOR YOU DRIVE THERE,

Raingear

by altfineart

Traveling light means editing out a lot of items. 1 of the things I don't pack (but often need) are umbrellas. They are easy to buy as you need them over there and it also means you can get a full size one instead of one of those tiny things that don't work very well any way. What I do is if it rains I pick up an umbrella along the way and then before I catch my next flight I either give it to the hotel to pass on to fellow travelers or offer it to another tourist on my way to the airport.
