Destination: London

A few of us extended our weekend to pop over to central London for a bit of culture, fine dining and museum exhibits.  This innermost part of the city spans several boroughs with the British Museum, the National Gallery and the Tate Galleries being within walking distance of the hotel. The Royal Palaces and Parliament were right around the corner making sightseeing accessible.

The Borough Market is one of the oldest food markets in London dating back to the 12th century was a phenomenal experience. Walking through the stalls you could see specialty foods displayed and I was there for the Stilton and Morbier cheeses.

The history of London is dotted throughout the city in buildings and roadways which dates back to the Roman occupation from 43 AD to the fifth century when the Empire fell.

I always enjoy a delicious cup of tea, but on this trip I had to intersperse espresso’s into the mix with creative cookies.

Travel stylishly,

December 21st

Friends are enjoying the winter solstice by watching the sunset on Guia de Isora. They’re on the western part of the island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands for the holidays. Today the sun is at its lowest point in the sky and will be the shortest day of the year. Just imagine …. in a few weeks the days will begin to lengthen and warmer weather will return!!!

Enjoy the season,
Kathleen
