After a especially bad day, my husband and I went out to dinner and started fantisizing about cashing in the 401K, selling the house and moving to Paris. Nice idea, but not very practical. But, just the THOUGHT of traveling put us both in a MUCH better mood.
The next day, Chris got an email from United displaying the latest e-fares. Round Trip to London for under $500? It was just too good to resist. It's been quite a while since we've done any major traveling and we've never been to London, so off we go in March.
We're both fairly seasoned travelers (Tokyo, Paris, Peru, most of the US, most of mainland Europe), but we've never been to England. While I'd like to take 3 weeks and travel about, we've only got 8 days to spare and all of it will be spend in London experiencing the city.
I've already got a pretty extensive list of places to see (heavy on the museum side, of course) but I don't want to miss the "real" London. Any suggestions for what to do, where to go, where to eat, where to shop (although with a dollor worth about $.50 I won't be doing much of that :rollyes, etc?
8 days, hip B&B in Belgravia (near Victoria Station) and 1/2 the money I usually travel with. This should be a fun challenge! Any help is appreciated.
