Learning London #BriFri — 7 Comments

  1. Joy, I am so excited for you and looking forward to your posts on your trip.

    We’ve been to London many times and never tire of it. In 2009 I took my BFF for her first ever trip overseas and we did the HOHO tour. It is definitely worth it to get around and orient yourself.

    Then in 2010 we took friends for their first time and also did the HOHO which they loved.

    The first thing I usually book in a new city is a HOHO to figure out where everything is and decide where I want to spend more time.

    I loved the book Transatlantic!

    • Hi Abigail
      I stopped by to check out your lovely pics of Oxford and tried to leave this comment….
      I had a memorable day trip to Oxford 23 yrs ago (egad ! is it really that long!)
      I managed to fit in quite a bit of sight seeing, but I would love to return for a length of time and just stroll and explore at leisure… day…until then, thanks for sharing your pics 🙂

      But for some reason I am unable to comment on any intensedebate sites 🙁

  2. Your walk to the Milennium Bridge will take you past the Tate (worth a look if you have the time) and Shakespeare’s new Globe Theatre is just nearby too (we managed to catch a matinee of Merchant of Venice – it was a wonderful thing to do).

    Time is always a factor when travelling, but if you can fit in a Thames cruise to Greenwich & the Thames Barrier – you wont regret it either 🙂

    The tube is quite easy to work out – it’s well signposted & colour-coded. But it can also be very busy, noisy, dusty & smelly!

    You’ll have a fabulous time and I can’t wait to see you holiday snap posts 🙂
