Desiree's Activity

ALondon: Can someone recommend a guided tour of London for me, a female solo.

I did a Jack The Ripper Tour​ while I was there that was pretty fun. You meet outside Tower Hill London Underground Station​ and they take you on a walking tour of the area, ending near Spitalfields​. There are a... See More

ANew York City: Looking for hip/trendy restaurants with fab food near specific locations

I was just at Birreria​, a semi-secret rooftop garden in the Flatiron District​. It's atop Mario Batali's Eataly​, which makes it super swank but the Italian beer garden theme also makes it chill. You... See More

AUnited States: SFO, LA, or NY to study and live for a year

I currently live in East Harlem​ and pay $1500/month for a railroad apartment. I lived in Chelsea (New York)​ for six months last year and paid $1700/month for a furnished basement studio. I was unwilling to look in the outer boroughs... See More

ALondon: Quaint day trips outside of London

Everyone will say Brighton​ but I hated Brighton, probably because of the high expectations set beforehand by everyone (London by the sea) and because I had already been to Eastbourne​, which was so much better than Brighton and seemingly... See More

ANew York City: Cheap hotel or hostel to stay for one night?

There are a couple on The Bowery​ that I know about. I actually stayed at The Bowery House​ and would recommend it for one or two nights. The Bowery's Whitehouse Hotel​ was recently written up here: See More

AUnited Kingdom: Need advice regarding driving to Scotland from London

I've made the trip from Dundee​ to London​ 3 times and all were via train. Once the train was even running a special discount for 25GBP first-class single but other times it was around 50GBP single for coach. All times, however,... See More

ASeattle: How to deal with lack of sunshine in Seattle

It's hard. And, after 11 years, I had to move. But, a lot of people stay and love it there. I can say that the summers are gorgeous and the 3 months of summer is well worth the 9 months of dreariness. Plus, you don't even notice the darkness those first two years... See More

ANew York City: Accomodation Websites

Hey Ernie, In NYC there's been a crackdown on those types of websites (especially AirBnb) because it's apparently illegal for one to offer their house up for very short-term accommodations (stealing business from hotels, etc.). I'm not sure how that's affected... See More

AUnited States: Best road trips on the East Coast.

I highly recommend roadtripping through the Adirondacks​. I stayed in Lake George​ and it was a great base for all the scenic byways throughout that region. That area is just filled with charming hamlets and roadside mom &... See More

ANew York City: How do New Yorkers spend a weekend in the city?

Check out Gothamist and Village Voice for events. Street festivals are common in early June and are scattered throughout Manhattan. TimeOut is also used quite a bit but is a weekly publication and won't allow you too much lead time if you're big on planning. Otherwise,... See More
