London’s Hidden Walks: Hampstead Highlights

February 19, 2018
Hampstead, London -
I bought a book called London’s Hidden Walks which compiles all of the self-guided walking itineraries that you can do around London with an in-depth information of the history and interesting facts you can see on the way. It’s the best purchase I’ve ever done so far this year as I love walking around this city and discovering all of its hidden gems. I am still keeping up to my promise of exploring London eve

Self-Guided Walk in Kingston, London

February 15, 2018
Kingston-Upon-Thames, London -
My love for Kingston-Upon-Thames started accidentally – two days after we moved to London, I had a job interview here. As a non-Londoner, I had no idea what and where Kingston is. Never even knew it existed as it’s never mentioned on London guides or tourist maps. After the interview, I went for a walk towards their town centre and fell in love at first sight. I was blown away by the quaintness of it, i

Unique Hotel Rooms in London For Every Budget

Studio Room at The Milestone Hotel, London
After writing about my travel style where I mentioned that I am not the biggest fan of big hotel chains when I travel, I was asked by a friend where I would personally stay if I were to visit London as a tourist.

Saying Thanks With A Bottle Of Whiskey

February 5, 2018
The Greek Mister celebrated his birthday a couple of days ago and I’ve always struggled on deciding what to give him for special occasions. He’s the simplest guy in the whole wide world – not into gadgets, not into clothes nor watches and definitely not into cars (not that I’d give him a car for his birthday, what is he? The King of England?) If there’s one thing he’s really very

Pinay Flying High’s London Guide

January 29, 2018
You’re probably wondering why I even bothered creating my own London guide when there are so many guides out there which are far more detailed than this. What sets this guide apart from everything else? Everything you’ll find here are based on my own personal experiences. I’ve been receiving a lot of London questions recently so I thought of compiling everything I know (and everything I’ve d

Waterloo Bridge - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-100
As many of you may know, I work as a travel agent as my day job. I do plan trips for other people for a living and I of course feel more confident if I personally know the person I’m planning the trip for. My Aunt visited me from the Philippines and I started planning her holiday months in advance, she doesn’t even have her UK visa yet and I already had a final itinerary for her. A bit about my Aunt, sh
