Fulfilling a dream...

   Thread Started November 7 at 12:25AM

<< Thread Modifed November 7 at 1:00AM >>

Hello, fellow Fanstorians.
I just reconnected with my little brother after a seven-year falling out.
I took the initiative and called him. After all, with one foot planted firmly in the grave, I'm running out of time. It's stupid to hold grudges.
During a random conversation I had with him this evening, he asked me if there were one thing in the world I could do before I die, what would it be?
I immediately said, "Go to London, England."
Well, guess what? He wants he and I to go there in January, his treat! I was speechless, I didn't know what to say!
While he is purchasing our airline tickets I am responsible for securing our accommodations.
That's where YOU, my Fanstory friends in England, come into play.
We need to find a place to stay while in England. A cheap bed & breakfast, or an inexpensive room for a week--anything! Not to mention a good guide and someone who knows the area.
We'll be making our way across the big pond in mid-January of next year. If you know of anything, please, by ALL means, send me a PM so I may make arrangements. You would be helping me to fulfill a life-long dream.
I would be eternally grateful.
~Dean Kuch

Congratulations on your upcoming trip AND for reconciling with your brother.

I do hope you have a wonderful trip. I'm sure someone that lives 'across the pond' should be able to help you with accommodations. I will be praying,

~patty~

I have to find someone willing to put me and my brother up for about five days, Yvonne. It's taking everything we have to get the airline tickets.
If no one does, we won't be able to go...

Dean try looking up BnB sites in and around London. The train system is pretty good so if you are out of the city try and get a BnB near a railway station.
You will love it

They say that when visiting London, you should always look upwards in order to appreciate the architecture.

The 'London Eye' allows tourists to view the city.

I would recommend visiting 'Hampton Court' (outside London.) The home of Henry Vlll.

Oxford' is a wonderful city too.

Liberties' an enormous 15th-century shop is quite beautiful. (central
London)


I guess it depends on what ya in too.

I live in central London, Westminster. The prices are heavy here, but places to stay, like 'Travel Lodge', are reasonable. There's one nr Baker st. Sherlock Holmes haunt. Which is also nr Regents park. (one of Queenies gardens) and Oxford St. (Major shopping area)

On the internet... You will find a list of 'London Walks' Which sets-up a meeting place for you at a specific time. One of these that may float ya boat, is 'Jack the Ripper' walk.

There's also a 'London Ghost walk' around the streets which is said to be quite good.

If ya get stuck, pm me and I'll share phone number.

Thanks, Trimple. The Ghost Walk and Ripper Walk sound interesting.
I'll look into those.
Hugs!
