My Two Weeks In September

Standard

I usually take two weeks holiday each year and travel for my birthday. This year, London also made the cut (after Paris of course).

Ever hear that “London Bridge is falling down?” Psych! London Bridge is just fine, but it may have gone full tilt a few days in September due to a visit from two wild and crazy girls from the USA.

Funny story… we were enjoying some great burgers at a nice pub near the hotel. I got the check and used the currency conversion app on my phone to discover we had spent $82 on burgers and fries. The bill was £50.60. We are now planning to fast for the rest of the trip, lol!!

Lovely Alice has an admirer. Graham was sneaky and got a kiss in just as I snapped the camera!

Next Stop… London!

Standard

Happy Sunday! Arrived early this morning at Nord Station in Paris to catch the Eurostar to London. We met Liz and Hanna, a mother and daughter from London who were happy to give us tips on their favorite shopping and eating spots in the city. We all shared experiences and confusion with trying to decipher the Paris subway system. I was glad that their observations of the states, particularly New York, faired much better.

We safely arrived in London and look forward to Harrod’s and taking in the sites. No rest for the stealth travelers!
