Off to London

December 24, 2008 by Evin

There’s no place like London for the holidays. Well, perhaps that’s not the song, but in the spirit of Love Actually and The Holiday (and the strong Euro), that’s the plan.

We secured a reservation at the Millennium ‘s Hotel Bailey across the street from the Gloucester tube stop. The rate was obscenely reasonable (less than £100 per night for two people including breakfast) and the location ideal. I am lucky enough to have an expat friend living there who is giving us restaurant suggestions (we like to eat).

The flight will be late tonight so we can hopefully avoid some of the crowds at the airport, but still get there early enough that the tube will be operating. Since it is Christmas Eve, our goal is to beat Santa to London!

We will not have WiFi in the hotel (costs £15 or 20 a day, didn’t get a straight answer which but either way too expensive), so I will write a nice long post about our adventures when we return after the weekend.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a safe flight!



Enough about me. What are you thinking?
