Good morning, We had a full day in London on Saturday. We walked from our hotel near St. Pancras Station to St. Paul’s Cathedral taking in some of the historical sites along the way thanks to an audio walking tour. For this attraction, buying our tickets directly from the Cathedral before we left home paid off. There wasn’t anyone in the queues that we went through so other than waiting a couple o...

Good evening from London, Thursday was a free day. Good news...the sun was finally shining. Yippee!!! After a lovely morning walk, we headed over to catch the funicular up to the Harder Kulm viewpoint. The lineup wasn’t too bad so we were able to get on the 10:40 car. Within 10 minutes, we went from 566 meters/1857 feet to 1,322 meters/4337 feet above sea level and the views were amazing. I have s...

A step closer to home - flying to London this afternoon (Tuesday) and catching Qantas home to Australia, Wednesday midday. We touch down in Perth on Thursday evening and arrive Brisbane in the early hours of Friday morning. The Croats live in a permanent state of “slow motion”, and there is a real relaxed, “no worry” attitude. Everywhere in Croatia, we experienced a leisurely pace, and nothing hap...

Last day in Windsor Cold start - 6 degrees at 9 am. Windsor is such a pretty town, not as touristy and many traditional shops. Today is the London Marathon - unfortunately we didn’t get our entry in time, so were not allowed to run the 45 kms! There were 40,000 competitors. Oldest competitor to complete course was 84 years old taking 6 hours - the winner, a Kenyan took 2 hours. We didn’t see it, b...

12 hours sleep and feeling well rested. Cold and blustery winds, so out came the winter woollies. Breakfast overlooking the Thames, then walked to shops, and lined up to watch Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle. Hushed anticipation from the crowd as we heard the drum beat approaching in the distance, and soon the Guards rounded the corner - all resplendent in their red uniforms and bear skin ...

Boarded A380 to London. So grateful for an upgrade to Business Class. It was a thirteen and half hour flight. Today is our 44th Wedding Anniversary and we woke from 8 hour sleep on the plane to celebrate it over Turkey. The crowds queueing at Heathrow Immigration were horrendous, and again grateful for Fast Track, and on our way to Hotel in Windsor in very short time. Although it was only 8.30 am...

It's a darn long trip to Stansted. First getting to Toronto and muck about. Then a nice upgrade to just under business class tricks you into thinking that you can actually fold down the seat to rest - but alas - it's just a little illusion - the little bit of leg room is good but that's about all. Still can't sleep on the planes. And the "filet" steak was carved from a 50 year old bull. Arriving...

I’m not really sure why I wanted to visit London initially. I think partially because everyone does it. Things are kind of weird right now between Ireland and the UK because of Brexit but a lot of people think it will take a long time for anything to really happen. The morning of my flight I really didn’t want to go. I think I was just in a bad mood and was a little worried about traveling alone...

Day 1 - We’re off! The first leg is a coach trip down to Heathrow. We left at midday & got to our overnight hotel near Heathrow airport about 6.30pm. Nice & clean & only a short bus ride from the airport, our pensioners bus passes are a blessing. We had our first American meal after we had settled in, we walked down the road to a nearby McDonalds, a good start....
