Whew! I just booked a ticket to London next month to celebrate a milestone birthday. I got a pretty good deal from British Air - $650, which is about $200 less than it was two weeks ago. It's such a crapshoot booking tickets these days. I love BA because it's direct from Baltimore to London and the airport here is very convenient.When I first lived in the UK, I worked at King's College London and then when I lived in Cardiff, I used to go to London every couple of weeks for meetings, so I have a pretty good grasp of the city and The City. But I'd like to hear your suggestions of places to see, shops to visit and things to do.
I am hoping to catch up with some fellow bloggers, House of Beauty & Culture, Sir Fopling Flutter and Just a Plane Ride Away, as well as seeing family and friends. It's shocking how few (none) pictures I have of London, so I will have to make a point of taking loads of photographs.Remember, I want your suggestions!
PS. Top image is Victoria & Albert's main hall with a Dale Chihuly glass installation. Next is Covent Garden with the musicians busking and last is a funny topiary outside a shop in Kensington. All by me.
