Travel Blog May/June 2018 - London, England -The center of the Universe

Even though I lived in England from 1993-1998, every time I visit on holiday, I’m still blown away by the richness of this country on all levels.


The city of London is rich in culture, foods, shopping, architecture, entertainment, and is the melting point for so many people all over the world.


London never gets old. I love the hustle and bustle, seeing people walk everywhere, friends hanging out at pubs, the aromas of ethnic foods at every street corner, the pleasure of afternoon tea......A must visit destination for you!

Day 1 in London at our favorite hotel-Corinthia hotel. Centrally located, close to Leicester square, Chinatown etc.
