An Evening Jog on the Millenium Walk

Just got back from a 45 minute jog along the River Thames. It's an amazing thing to go for a run and pass such world-famous sites as Big Ben and the Parliament building, the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe Theater and the Tate Modern museum. My apartment in which I'm renting a room is practically in the shadow of Big Ben--the location really couldn't be better. I found the apartment through the website AirBnB.com. I've always found jogs as a great way to either orient yourself in a city, or get a break from the bustle. While you may be dodging throngs of tourists, it's always entertaining at least to dance through these groups on my quest to break a sweat. MapMyRun.com is another good website--one that let's you post your favorite routes anywhere in the world, or take suggestions from others.

Happy Backpackers

My WSA experience was incredible. It was very well-organized, and my tour guide made me feel right at home. I always felt safe, which was important to me. We got to see so much in a short amount of time, but it didn't feel rushed. I was very impressed!
