About Me

Backpack Becky: I grew up in the UK, living in Leeds and Birmingham. I then quit my job and lived in Japan for one year, first in a ski resort, then I moved to Osaka to teach English. After a year in the land of Hello Kitty, I moved just outside of Paris to be an au pair. I'm now travelling through Australia doing helpx. I've spent a lot of time travelling through Europe and south-east Asia, and also doing a lot of skiing, snowboarding, scuba diving and finding vegetarian restaurants.

AUnited Kingdom: Suggestion of place to stay at

Hi Irrestry, I would recommend staying at all of the places you are going to and not commuting each day. Windsor​ is easy to get to from London​, but it would be cheaper to stay in Windsor. You may as well also stay in Bath​.... See More
