  • Touring the CotswoldsToday I let someone else do all the work. I simply boarded a bus and let a driver and a guide control what I saw. I say "simply", when in truth it was a bit disorganized and confusing Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 24, 2013
  • A Royal PalaceToday I visited the Queen's lovely home. That's only possible because she is away - otherwise she would not abide all the riff-raff filing through her staterooms. Buckingham Palace was on my "must do" list, but it is Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 23, 2013
  • Another Side of LondonToday was one of the most diverse days of the trip, that's for sure. The day started in the usual way, with coffee, fruit and pastries in the hotel cafe. A lady named Susan sat at the table Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 22, 2013
  • The English CountrysideToday was an enormous day! We started early at 6 and got a quick breakfast in the hostel kitchen. We headed to Kings Cross Station and got the tube back to Victoria Coach Station. We boarded our coach and cruised Posted by missdigney in European Adventure! | Sep 22, 2013
  • Fun Times In LondonWe started off the day slowly again, as we have been a little tired. We also knew that once we start the tour it will be full on! We left the hostel at about 10 again and had breakfast at Posted by missdigney in European Adventure! | Sep 22, 2013
  • Shopping and CrowdsJacquie and Fanella arived at my hotel about 11:00 or so this morning. I gave them a brief tour of the hotel: drawing room, bar, staircase where Lillie Langtry supposedly snuck King Edward vii up to her room, and Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 21, 2013
  • Doing It All Again[b]In the middle of 1966, after sixteen months in London, and with little to show for my efforts to become an actor, it was time to head home to Sydney, where I felt I might make better progress. It was Posted by Ozac in Back Down Shoestring Road | Sep 20, 2013
  • The Victoria Palace TheatreFirst, a health update: the knee is better today. I simply avoided walking downstairs. That was only possible by taking the underground as little as possible. Many of the stations have escalators, but I rarely run Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 19, 2013
  • Incredible Westminster AbbeyToday was the last day that my 3-day London Pass was valid, and I definitely saved the best for last. I don't think it is possible to enter, or even approach Westminster Abbey without being overwhelmed by the Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 18, 2013
  • Conquering the bus systemBusy day again. My first stop today was the Tower of London, where I paid my respects to the final resting place of Anne Boleyn's head, introduced myself to the ravens that live there, developed a crush on Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 17, 2013
  • Friend Connection UKOver the last year or so we have witnessed unbelievable spiritual ceremonies, eaten strange and glorious things, travelled back in time, climbed mountains and got up close and personal with the wild and wonderful. But after a long time on Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Sep 17, 2013
  • London Baby! We arrived at Perth International Airport at 3am. We hung around waiting (like you always do at airports) and just tried not to fall asleep before we were called to board. We boarded our plane at about 5:30 and tried Posted by missdigney in European Adventure! | Sep 17, 2013
  • Being a tourist is hard workI was all over London today. I took the underground to Trafalgar Square to pick up my prepaid London Pass and then strolled around the huge square for a while. The sun was brightly shining and people were Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 16, 2013
  • Safely ArrivedAt this moment I am in the "drawing room" of the Cadogan Hotel. There are ~30 people in the room, 29 of them are having tea. Nuff said. OK, about the hotel: it is very charming and it is Posted by Follow Carol in Carol's Travels | Sep 15, 2013

  • Brighton to ParisBrighton became more and more bizarre, the longer we stayed. While this might seem odd, well you have to be here for more than a couple of days to even begin to understand. This place is extraordinarily popular Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2013 | Sep 13, 2013
