Tomorrow morning I’m London-bound for 10 days (and no, sorry, there’s absolutely no room in my suitcase). Well, actually I’m Dulles-bound in the morning… then Charlotte-bound in the afternoon… THEN, around 8pm, I’m (finally) London-bound. Anyway, YAY!
I do love me some London… it’s one of my favorite places in the world. I love the UK in general, truth be told, and having been born in Scotland, I’m lucky enough to hold dual-citizenship. I have dreams of moving back someday (and depending on how this damned election turns out, ‘someday’ could come sooner rather than later!).
Anyway, London is my primary destination this trip. I love how busy and interesting and vibrant the city is. I love the architecture, the history, the culture, the diversity, and the people. I love the museums and the restaurants and the pubs (especially the pubs!). I don’t, however, love how expensive it is (and the fact that the dollar is in the toilet certainly doesn’t help). But that’s the trade-off, I guess. I go as often as I can, to hang out with my friends and family. This time a friend from home is joining me, and that’s always fun, as I like to see familiar sights through fresh eyes. I’m also taking my ‘puter and I’ve packed the little cord thingy that allows me to move pictures from my camera to it, so I’ll post from there!
