London Reborn

We have been living outside of London for the last two years and have loved every minute of it. London is a fantastic city and it just keeps getting better. Of course the best part of London is its elegant 'Old Worldliness.' It is an architectural jewel graced with pomp and tradition. But it is much, much more than that. It is also glamorous, new age and fashion setting.  
When we first came through several decades ago, London was still a bit dreary. It has undergone a great metamorphisis, most of which has been in step with its rich tradition. We credit much of this for being Europeanized. I am sure the English would wince at the thought, but let's be honest - Milan design and cappuccino shops have turned this place around!

And please don't forget - there is much more to England than just London. Indeed, many would argue that the Cotswolds, Cornwall and Cambrideshire are much nicer places to spend one's time. Of course it is like comparing apples and oranges. If you live in the countryside it is great to get into London, just as the reverse is certainly true. 


  1. Looks like a great place to visit, but too much rain for my sunny Arizona taste!

  2. Please visit us in August during our 80 degree "heat wave."

  3. Am coming back in August. The build out of your website is exciting. I am visiting frequently to see what is new. August visit includes plans to see Olympic Track and Field and follow Oregon Track Club athletes and particularly Ashton Eaton's quest for Decathlon Gold/ OregonTravelDog.

  4. If you need tickets these folks claim to tickets available for events; might be worth a free call from North America.
