This is a short
series of columns written about my London trip. I
hope you will enjoy it! London pictures
are also posted.
sister and I are planning a trip together to London. I’ve never done
anything like this before, so it will be an adventure.
"I’ve traveled so much that I’m an expert at
traveling light," my sister told me.
seemed like a great idea when my sister suggested a vacation tour
to London. I haven't been anywhere like that before, so I
was looking forward to it. We found cheap tickets on the
Internet for an evening flight.
My sister is organized and has things like itineraries,
maps, and guidebooks to make the most of a travel vacation like the
one we took to London. She wanted to see museums, universities,
“What do you want to see?” she asked me.
“Er… I hear they have great pubs and fish ‘n’ chips.”
woke up to rain in morning. It rains a lot in London --
something about being an island surrounded by the sea, I think.
What would we do since it is raining, I wondered.
“Go anyhow, of course,” said my sister.
After checking out most of the museums in
London, we were ready for something different. We got up
early to go to a flea market that my sister had heard of called
Portobello Market. Well, actually, she had seen it in a movie.
The entire time that I was in London, I was never
able to figure out British money. I don’t know why they
don’t just use Euro’s like the rest of civilized Europe -- not
that I could figure that out either.
