    I have enjoyed your travel videos, they are extremely helpful. I will be visiting London for the first time ever at the end of August! What is the weather like during that time? I see now in my weather app it may be in the 70s. What advice do you have on what I should pack during that time period?

    I can’t find where to find the links in the “description section below” that you reference. I’d love to order some of the items you recommend but can’t see where to do so.

    Hi Jess, I stumbled on your YouTube vids while checking out tips for our first Lonson trip this September 2017. I must say that your presentation is breezy, concise, sharp, extremely helpful, meaningful and funny. Got a question I’m struggling with: how much should I budget for ALL-IN expenses (hotel, food, transport, admission fees – to Tower of London and the like) per day in London? is GBP300.00 sufficient? We are budget traveler. Many thanks and am grateful to all that you’re doing here.

      Thanks Jonathan! Hard to answer this as it’s different for everyone, even if you consider yourself a budget traveler. Admission fees to places like the Tower of London will run you a lot of money if you plan to go to a lot of places like that so I’d look into visiting lots of the free things around the city.
