How far did I travel this week?:

The farthest I traveled to this week was London, which was an eight hour bus ride from Brussels, which is in turn an hour's train ride from Hasselt! I woke up at 5 a.m. to leave Hasselt and arrived in London at 2p.m.! Quite the journey! It was truly worth it though, because London gave me a great time!

How far have I traveled on this journey so far?:

London is the farthest I have traveled! But I have also been to Paris and Amsterdam, which were also quite far from my city in Belgium. Overall, Paris to Hasselt was a 250 mile trip, plus the Hasselt to Amsterdam trip which was 300 miles roundtrip. Given that London is 280 miles away from Hasselt, and I went to London and back, what is the total distance I have traveled so far?

(Answer: 250 + 300 + (280)*2 = 1,110 miles!)

How did I get around this week?:

I bussed to work every day, walked to the grocery stores and took the train to Brussels! 

What was the most interesting place I visited this week?:

Definitely the Borough Market in London! Seeing all the different types of fruits and vegetables, the aromas of the baked goods and trying different teas made this destination the highlight of my U.K. trip.
