How to Be a Tourist

Generally, Dan and I are very against being those touristy people that are always snapping pictures, looking at maps in the middle of the sidewalk, and being in those tour groups that clog up the museums by standing front of the coolest things for hours.

Through the haze of sleep … More First Day in London
