Thigpenny's - Our Two Cents on Travel


We are just a couple of forty-somethings who enjoy travel.  When we go somewhere new, we like to lightly touch the touristy spots, and focus more on the local flavor.  In researching our trip to London, we noticed that most of the source material was either major tour companies or geared toward millennials, so we are hoping this might appeal to some of the rest of us.

We are looking forward to going where the locals eat and trying high tea somewhere off the beaten path.  We like to depart the typical path and stumble across fascinating bits that don't make it into every tour book as we are on our way to more known attractions like the Eye, Westminster, The Globe and more.

Domestic or international, we enjoy most kinds of travel and hope to keep this page up as we go.   Thanks for coming along on the ride.  Please feel free to make suggestions or comments.  Thanks!
