LONDON AND END OF MY UK ROUNDTRIP





Today had been our last day in the UK. The little Bed & Breakfast hotel I had booked and which was so near to the St. Pancras station, was really very nice. We had a good long sleep and after a nice breakfast we met with Marie from "After 60". We had called each other to meet and she picked us up at our hotel for a sightseeing tour through London which she knows like her pocket.



Marie and Ilona in deep conversation, London Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Horse guards.

Ilona had never seen the most touristic attractions in London besides the once I had showed her when we arrived. Marie took us around and then we had a nice lunch in a beautiful very big pub. Ilona and I love jacket (baked) potatoes with cheese and so we had our "last" once.

It was so nice to chat with Marie, as if we had known each other for a long time. Blogging is really nice, it allows you to meet so many people from all over the world.



Then it started raining and we said goodbye to Marie, took the bus to Harrod's which Ilona wanted to see. As usual the decoration was very impressive and we admired them.  We didn't buy anything, we didn't want to go bankrupt.

After a coffee we returned to our hotel, took our luggages and then went off to catch the Eurostar.
And this was the end of our wonderful and interesting roundtrip through the UK !

Glad you got home safely. I really enjoyed meeting the two of you, it seemed as though we had known one another for years. It was only when I got home I realised I had not used my camera so no photo of the two of us. Unforgiveable for a blogger.

You certainly saw the sights in your whirlwind trip. You will be glad to get back to your own bed though!
