    Off to Southampton

    June 1 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Schlepping all my precious possessions from London to Southampton makes me appreciate not being homeless. Dianne being my equal and not one of my possessions means I have a partner in this endeavour. We make our way over road and sidewalk, curb and cobblestone, up and down stairs, in elevators, subways, and trains to our new abode by the sea. I booked the place and I knew that Dianne would critique the “Polygon Villas” eventuality. She started on the train ride by checking online reviews. The news, it seemed was not good. There was several reviews of the Polygon Guest House that rated the place as worse than crap! “Wouldn’t book my cat here”! Well Polygon Guest House is close in proximity to Polygon Villas, but it is an inferior establishment for sure. We have no cats here, a bathroom close by, albeit not in our room, and they are upgrading everything even as we speak. It’s not large but it is centrally located. We have been able to walk everywhere. Still though, Dianne is not entirely happy. Her main complaint is that our closet at home is larger than our room.Read more

    Morning coffee at Regents Park

    June 1 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We went for a walk this morning around St John’s Wood and Regents Park and found a newly erected prison. It is to house a head of state visitor from the U.S. It is a large area, but it is still designed to hold someone incarcerated. Ironically the prison is situated between the zoo and the Grande Mosque of Regents Parker.

    Our next excursion is to Southampton via tube and train. Dianne doesn’t trust me to be able to gather all of our belongings before we check out so she is packing our stuff herself.

    St John's Wood, London, UK

    May 31 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We made it! After a two hour delay, the pilot finally showed up. He had all the lame excuses covered, airplane went mechanical, slow ATC, sick passenger, you name it. I have used them all and could see right through it. Once Dave got on board we got moving pretty soon and we left the smoke filled skies of Calgary behind us.

    Dianne and I sat beside each other and over the course of our conversation she discovered that within the last year, I had lost the universal power adapter we bought on a previous trip. No problem, we could buy a new on from the on board duty free, just like last time. We can buy one, but not without being reminded of all the things I have lost over the past 40 years of flying. The list is long and Dianne rememberers every shirt, sweater, underwear, shoes, glasses, earphones, book, etc. 40 years is a long time and there are going to be some casualties.

    We spent the remainder of the day walking. St John’s Wood is a quaint English area. The buildings are old, many have the corner pub ( overflowing on a Friday evening). We walked through Regents Park ( one of Toms favourite walks). We walked down Oxford street sightseeing the high end stores. At the end of the day we had logged over 31,000 steps!

    Ladies; as you can see Dianne lost no time finding the elliptical machine to do her workout!

    Baker Street y Abbey Road

    December 7, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    El último día decidimos ir directamente a Abbey Road a hacernos la famosa foto emulando a los Beatles pero antes paramos en Baker Street para buscar la casa de Sherlock Colmes.

    La calle mola mucho por la variedad de sus tiendas y el diseño de sus edificios.

    Después de localizar la citada vivienda y buscamos un bus que nos llevase a Abbey Road y lo encontramos. Nos hicimos la famosa foto con la cámara (no con el móvil) y tiramos para el centro.Read more
