In less than 36 hours, I’ll finally be on my way to London for World Travel Market. Despite the chillier than preferred temperatures, I’m quite excited for the line up of events and my first *new* country of 2012!
The highly anticipated Ultimate Travleista Week, where I’ll be joining Tracey of One Brown Girl, Monique of Mo Travels, Tawanna of Mom’s Guide to Travel and Carol of Girl Gone Travel, will finally be getting underway in our
Go with Oh apartment. We’ll also be joining other travelistas for the second stop of Wandermania on Tour hosted by Lola Akinmade-Akerstrom. If you haven’t seen her work, get familiar. She’s an outstanding photo-journalist! And to top it all off, we’ll be meeting at Caribbean Scene Royale, where I definitely see an order of oxtail cassoulet in my future!
But before the World Travel Market craziness ensues and the travelistas arrive in town, I’ll be flying in a few days early to do a bit of my own London exploration. I secured a different apartment in Greenwhich with help from Wimdu, a Berlin based accommodations provider, and I’m pretty geeked about my pre-World Travel Market plans. Being the Jamaica addict that I am, I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for Jamaican culture in London to be featured as a part of a new series “Jamaica in…”. And because no trip is complete without a cupcake (or 4), I’ll be sampling the best London has to offer via London Cupcake Tours and a special order from Marnie Searchwell Cakes.
