Hispanicize founder Manny Ruiz (aka@PapiBlogger) is taking his wife Angela (aka @TexinMiami) and four children on the ultimate Thanksgiving Week trip through England in partnership with Best Western from November 20th-28th.
Even though the family is traveling more than 70,000 miles on road trips throughout the U.S. and parts of Latin America (they did Puerto Rico this summer), this represents the clan’s first vacation in Europe and it will be done entirely by trains and other means of public transportation.
Among the iconic British landmarks and places the family plans to visit and document through social media are the Tower of London, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, British Museum, Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Bath and much more. The family’s adventures can be followed on Instagram, Twitter, Periscope and Facebook using the hashtags #VisitBritain and #ViajaConBW.
One of the biggest highlights of the trip is a surprise two-day excursion to one of their favorite European cities that will take place on Tuesday, November 24th.
“We’re going to explore London and other parts of England from a historic, modern, technological and even multicultural angle,” said Ruiz, whose main connection to England is that he sold his former company, Hispanic PR Wire, to a publicly traded British company, United Business Media. “Even though this trip is personal I am hopeful it will help build stronger ties between Latino influencers who are the future of the U.S. and the British people, a nation whose destiny directly impacts ours.”
