Our Trip to London

I appreciate the guest post, Vito Rivers

Every year, when we sit down to try to decide where to go on vacation, we make a list of all the places and destinations that our family is considering. Then we try to find travel shows on them on our Satellite TV system. Having DIRECTV in Texas lets us view shows from all over the world, so we have much more to choose from.

After viewing a special on London on Satellite one night, my husband and I looked at each other and we knew in that instance that London would be our next trip. It had something for everyone.

We booked a travel package through our local travel agent, Maggie, that included our air on American Airways and a 5 night stay at the Marriott Kensington Hotel. We decided that the Kensington area would be the best location for our base. The kids loved that they could walk over to the Natural History Museum and I, of course, loved that Harrod's Department Store was nearby.

We got around London on their underground rail system which they call the "Tube". There seemed to be stops all over the city so you didn't have to spend much on taxi's. Our days were spent sightseeing. We saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and Kensington Palace. London was a great destination where you actually can have lots of fun as you learn about history, culture, and art. We all agreed that this was one of our best family vacations ever.
