  The British are known for drinking tea. While the team might come from China or India, and there are many countries that are known for tea rituals like Japan, the British are famous for drinking it for most of the day. When I first moved to London, I did not drink tea. Today, I am a proper London tour guide who has tea daily, much to the chagrin of my dental hygienist. Some days, I properl...

It’s been a while since I wrote a blog post, and the time really did fly by! I didn’t mean to take a hiatus, but I seemed to skip one Monday, and then boom — a month went by! Perhaps this is because I have actually been going out and about in London for various reasons, which is a welcome change to being stuck at home.  Lockdowns are lifted, kids are out of school for the s...

“Are you Team William &Kate or Team Harry & Meghan, or both?” This is a question I have recently been asking my tour clients. Taking advantage of being able to guide outdoors, I have recently launched a tour that walks through Hyde Park and the Kensington area. When we arrive at the outside of Kensington Palace, this question always comes up. It is important for me to know whic...

As I write this, I feel like there is a calming lull in London. The weather is 97% chance of rain with the sun attempting to peak through the morning clouds. There is a cool breeze blowing, and it is very quiet where I am. This is a stark contrast to what it was like a mere 10 hours ago, when the Euro 2020 competition ended with Italy winning against England, thus dashing dreams at a trophy. ...

Last week was rather busy, with a few highlights along to way. During the pandemic, I have tried to diversify my time to keep myself positive. The tourists have not yet begun to arrive in droves back to London, so my tour guiding hasn’t been as busy as it would be for June. July is typically my busiest time, but alas this summer (like last summer) will be rather slow.  If you have be...

I haven’t been on the Underground since March 2020. That seems strange. I love the Underground, but with the pandemic raging, it seemed the best short-term decision which seems to have lasted a year. Unbelievable! I still can’t believe it has been over a year since I was on a tube train! London Underground has a fantastic history of several underground initiatives eventually being b...

We’re having a heatwave again in London. I write about the weather here because perhaps someone will read this around the time that they are planning to travel and get a feel for what to pack. Maybe you are reading this and wishing you where here, but cannot be. Maybe you are here and reading this, and nodding profusely in agreement. It doesn’t matter, I’m just happy someone is r...

London is finally getting some warm weather. We have had a rather cold and damp year so far, so the warm weather of Spring is very welcomed. Last weekend was the Bank Holiday (a three day weekend) where we had the Monday off. In America, it was Memorial Day, but here it doesn’t have the same significance. That’s alright, I still appreciated the soldiers!  On the Sunday and Monday...
