London

Late in the summer, I will be going to London for only the third time. Just like Paris, London will require many trips to see what I think is important to see. For me, this includes a few repeat stops and more museums and places of interest. Also, on this next trip I will be part of The Duke of Wellington Tour. Every few years, I like going somewhere with an organized tour, mainly to gain more knowledge of what I already appreciate, but also to stay in the nicer places and not have to worry about planning and organizing everything myself for me and/or me and my friends. I can just pay and go. This trip is going to be great and I am so looking forward to meeting some other Anglophiles.

 

Through the past 5 blogging years I have posted some blog entries about London or ones that are London-related. The most popular is definitely Art Highlights from London. I am getting excited to gather some info for some new London posts. One of the other popular entries was Guest Post on Number One London. The ladies hosting the tour are the bloggers behind Number One London. On The Wellington Tour, I will be going back to Apsley House. The house will have been remodeled and updated by then, so that will add to the excitement of getting to go with other Wellington and London enthusiasts. Since I posted my own picture of Apsley House, I have seen the picture used on the internet in a number of places and am quite flattered. Of course, if I put a pic on my blog, I don’t care if it is copied. As an aside, I have been asked by websites if some of my pictures are my own and can they use them. That is always so nice to know others appreciate your carefully chosen photos. Following is that Apsley House pic. I like how the cars are whizzing by:

    It’s going to be wonderful to spend ten days in England with you! So looking forward to it, and to revisiting Apsley House with you. And the Pavilioin. And Stratfield Saye. And the Grenadier. Thanks so much for featuring us on your blog today!

    I’ve never properly been to London, meaning we stopped for a night or two on our way to E. Europe a couple of times, but I don’t feel I really saw the city. Like you say, it requires repeat visits to truly see the history and beauty of it.
    Looking forward to your posts from London later this year.

      There is so much to see in London, Silvia. No matter what city, you have to do a lot of walking around and use the public transportation system as well to get the real feel of the place.

      This trip is still about 5 months away . . . but I am ready now.

      Happy Monday!
