Part of living in Israel is the necessity to take a trip home to visit family and friends. When you live halfway across the world, chances are that people aren't going to come to you. You're going to have to go to them. And that's exactly what we're going to be doing. Of course, I had to somehow work in a trip and a stopover in each direction on our homeward journey. First stop: LONDON!
This morning, we will be jumping on a plane and making our way to London via Riga, Latvia. Hopefully we'll have time to check out Riga during our 6 hour layover, but I'm not so sure. We'll have to play it by ear. Nonetheless, by the end of the day we'll be London-bound:
I'm dreaming up some tea and biscuits, visits to the Buckingham Palace, taking pictures in a London red phone booth and/ or a double-decker tour bus and viewing the Changing of the Guards:
Of course, it does not end there. Where do we even begin? Big Ben, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Hyde Park. There will only be so much time to sight-see during our 3-night visit. I'm also eager to make it to Harrod's where I hear they have the best High Tea around:
It's been years since my last visit to London and my husband has never been so it will definitely be an exciting trip. Goodbye Israel and Hello London!
In just a few days, we'll be up and out, onward to the USA after nearly a year abroad. If anyone out there has any last-minute travel suggestions for London, feel free to advise. I'm always open to insider travel advice for anywhere and everywhere. Bon Voyage and have a good week!
