ON HOLIDAYS IN THE UK

It only took me 2 hours to get from Brussels to London with the Eurostar. This train runs now at 300 km/h (186 miles) goes under the sea and arrives in London ! It's just amazing. You don't feel at all this high speed, you only see flying by woods, houses and cows.

I stayed 3 h in London before I went to Eastbourne my final destination at the South East coast of England.

I visited the Queen :



She must feel like an exotic animal in a zoo. There were hundreds of tourists around !



Here is my "hotel" with my private driver Doug. My friend Anne is already in the car. It is just a very strange feeling to drive on the left side and that the driver sits on the right ! I automatically go to the wrong side of course !


I have my holiday cats




the wonderful sea



and a concert in the afternoon ! It really is a wonderful place !

What gorgeous weather you had!

Yes, it is so odd to drive on the other side of the road. Hubby lived in Hong Kong, so he still remembers how to, but it makes me nervous!

LOL! I'm glad you are enjoying your trip! England does not tempt me... not even a little. But... maybe you will find some pictures to make me change my mind! (NOT standing in line to see the Queen! LOL!)

I rode the Eurostar from London to Paris once. It did indeed go fast.

that black cat is beautiful ;) do they belong to someone? they are too beautiful to be stray cats.
