It’s been almost eight years since my husband and I visited London. I didn’t even realize that it’s been that long. This year has been a lackluster year for travel for us by choice, as we only had one international travel, but the travel bugs that we are, I’m sure that it will be a different story in 2012.
Last year’s destination for us was Monaco, the French Riviera and Ireland. Our trend indicates the common denominator – Europe. Yes, we are determined to see every European country that are interesting to us. One place I wouldn’t mind going back to however, is London. And next year’s London Olympics might just be the perfect time to visit again.
With that in mind, thorough travel planning and a well thought out itinerary is imperative. Being the travel planner in the family, and knowing how husband and I are very particular with accommodations, I should really start looking into possible accommodations this early. Add to that the allure of the Olympics, I’m pretty sure that getting the best Olympics 2012 accommodation will be a race among many who are planning to be there in time for all the festivities. With this most awaited sporting event being held within the Greater London area, it will make more sense to incorporate in the plan and secure one of the London apartments within a stones throw away for accessibility.
If we push through with this travel plan, I wouldn’t mind going back to see the Crown Jewels of England at the Tower of London. This time, I’m sure I’d be more interested and keen on looking at the pieces because of my recent interest and passion for gems and jewels lately. And how can I not miss the traditional fish and chips? Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Last but not the least, I want to go shopping for essentials from my favorite store that is nowhere to be found here in the United States – that is Marks & Spencers.
It’s never an easy job to plan for a vacation. It requires meticulous planning, but for a destination like London, the option to peruse online portals like that of – HomeAway.co.uk that specializes in offering great Holiday rental properties makes travel planning a lot easier.
Everything sounds great and good in writing. Now, let me first ask for my ‘financier’s’ approval so this plan will come into fruition.
