Most of what you’ll read here is life and fun, with episodes from my past, amusing and serious. But I have an unwelcome stranger lodged in my brain, as you’ll find if you explore my stories. Our destinies are interlocked, but its deadly presence reminds me every minute that each day of life is a miracle. This is my space to reflect on life, and an interactive area where we can share our experiences freely. Without you, this blog has no reason for existence. Carpe Diem!

I spent a nice 10 days at 77 Gower Street a few years agoReplyDelete
Betcha it wasn't for 5 quid 50 a day, even single! A hot brekkie would cost that much! But it's a nice area in terms of central London location.ReplyDelete
I used to walk through to Chatham House, St James's Square, known also as the Institute of International Affairs. Great place for spooks.
There's another story there! It would have been a perfect place for you to stay.
I think it was about 80 quid a day for twin share with ensuite back in 2004.ReplyDelete
We had breakfast each day with toast brought to our table.
Bloomsbury!! How I love that area. Fast forward 30 odd years from your visit and its 2010. I'm living just around the corner from the museum, just off Lambs Conduit. What a gorgeous little spot - quiet and leafy with dog walkers and people who nod and say hi....RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF LONDON. That's right peace and quiet in inner city London is possible...with a price tag of course. A very special spot indeed. A hop skip and a jump from Soho. Perfect. So I could head into Soho for an outrageous night of dancing and celebration only to walk home in 10 mins and act like a responsible Bloomsbarian and smile and nod at the locals walking their dogs.

I always think of this part as the centre of my London experience, just a walk through to the theatres of the Soho area and Piccadilly.... all those places on the Monopoly Board! It's a long time since I walked through central London, but it's still the best city of all in my memory. Thanks for yours. I have the feeling that in that particular area, not much has changed.ReplyDelete
