Travel around the UK

United Kingdom is a special place for both of us: we met while studying at the University of Edinburgh (Liza was studying Masters in Marketing, while Jose was studying Masters in AI). We’ve been living in the UK for the last 7 years. During these 7 years, we had a chance to live in beautiful Edinburgh that will forever stay in our hearts and later, we moved to London, the city of opportunities. We had a chance to explore a bit of Scotland while studying and living there and now we are primarily exploring England and the South-East (including Wales). 

Since we bought a car, we’ve been doing a lot of road trips, day trips and weekend trips. We also have quite a few posts about exploring London and life in London in general and the most photogenic and Instagrammable places all around the UK. 

Each of the countries in the UK will have a separate page below (except for Northern Ireland – we haven’t visited it yet), so just pick the one you’re interested in the most!
