Trip Report Trip Report: J&M in the UK and Ireland (plus Philly)

Jump to last reply

We started planning this trip around Thanksgiving, and the Fodors members were fabulous in helping us out! So hopefully the trip report will entertain some of you and help future travelers as well.

The travellers: Jennifer (that's me), very type-A planner, "young professional," age 26; and Maegan, best friend from college, recent pharmacy school graduate and just excited to be there, age 25. Both of us spent a semester in London in college, and ever since we'd been talking about how, one day, we were going back to Europe. This month wound up being perfect timing. We tried to pack light - especially since we were taking a Ryanair flight between London and Ireland. M was more successful than I was, but she also really wanted some clean clothes by the end of the trip, so I'm okay with that! She took a carryon size and a backpack; I took an LL Bean roller (with a spare duffel inside) and a messenger bag.

We were most definitely traveling on a budget - our accommodations averaged about $45 a night apiece, and we got sandwiches and fruit from grocery stores a lot for meals. (Honestly, I think that's easier than trying to search for a place to eat that everyone will agree on!) We did have a cell phone - I got an unlocked Motorola V180 for about $60 on eBay, and alexis2525 actually sent me a T-Mobile sim card. We just topped up our credit at Boots when we arrived.

For those who want to see photos: I'll put a link to the set for each day at the end of that section. But the collection for our entire trip is at http://tinyurl.com/347eyd.
