London Town

Greetings Diva Readers,

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Isn’t it amazing how you feel like you’ve fallen into the abyss or lost an arm when your internet connection is down? I nearly died these past 2 weeks as my ADSL line went kaput and I found myself sneaking into my neighbors unsecured wifi to check emails on the sly! Now, I am happy to say, I’m back on line with a new modem, a new-found respect for the control KPN has over my life and a kickin’ new″ target=”_blank”>Toshiba to boot! This new computer and restored internet service didn’t come a moment to soon…. I’m off to England next month as WG & I are taking my darling 16 year old nephew Gabriel to see Stonehenge, Oxford and London for his birthday and I was in serious need of booking our hotel & transportation reservations.

Today, while doing research and promising to never take my internet connection for granted again, I revisited one of my favorite London websites” target=”_blank”> – a site which calls itself “The Number One Internet Site for London”. I wouldn’t plan a trip to London without visiting this website — they offer” target=”_blank”>special discounts on hotels, sell” target=”_blank”>half-priced theater tickets and boast a plethora of other diva-worthy services and information. I love the section on their site offering “” target=”_blank”>unique experiences” where you can sign up to take a workshop on everything from “pole dancing” to “chocolate making” to “wine tasting”.

Just this morning in the blink of an eye, I bought″ target=”_blank”>London Eye tickets, booked 1/2 price tickets to see’s” target=”_blank”>Lord of the Rings at the Drury Lane Theater Royal — a spectacle on a scale said to put even Cirque du Soleil to shame! Then I booked a hotel near Tower Bridge and scheduled a Shakespearean” target=”_blank”>Walking tour (and reserved the Jack the Ripper tour as a back-up plan should my nephew scoff at the Barb). I even booked” target=”_blank”>tickets to see The Tower of London thinking I’d happily skip standing in line! has made planning a trip to London idiot-proof — or perhaps make that “tourist-proof”! I love this site and now that I’m back online I couldn’t help but tell you to mark this page for your next trip to London! This site even” target=”_blank”>boasts a blog that for Anglophiles might be worth checking out…

Cheers & Have a Jolly Good Week!
