There’s so much about London to love, and I always travel by way of British Airways. I’m so excited to partner with the airline in flying World Traveler Plus. With work, I like to take the red-eye from NYC to England especially if I’ve got a gig back to back. 9pm flights. 9 am calltimes. Travel while you sleep is the way I go…and all that time will allow sometimes! I’m good at finishing up a long day, putting on my eye covers, and waking up to the sound of the rain lightly tapping the windows. It’s a comforting feeling. A lot of my travel experience has to do with the flight. When I have a great flight and extra space, and great food, I feel a lot better the moment I land. It’s all about the spirit of the journey. British Airways is all about #BLeisure. Meaning traveling for both business and leisure. I think I’m a master at traveling with a carry-on, working, fitting in as many appointments as possible, and still making it to the pub at the end of the day with friends. The world suddenly begins to feel smaller and smaller with every flight I hop on. I can’t wait to hop on British Airways back for a muddy Glastonbury night or a sunny afternoon at The Ace in Shoreditch.
I’ve always had this sweet spot in my heart for London. When I think of London, I think of running down Brick Lane on a rainy day in my Dr. Martens for the first time. In awe of the record shops, little Indian shops one after another. The style. It doesn’t matter the season, it’ll be raining yet beautiful and moody. I think of curling up into a pub at any moment at Covent Garden. Finding music, everywhere. I think of punks. I think of an underground system that puts the NYC subway to shame. And I love the British sense of humor. They’re witty. It’s a city that understands my humor and I can’t wait to go back.
