You know you’re in the UK when you hear a BBC weather report that states it’s going to be “sunny, windy, cold, rainy with a chance of hail”! knew I should have bought a brolly yesterday!



Not even the weather report can put a ‘dampener’ on my spirits. I woke up early this morning – even too early for Starbucks! At least McDonalds is open and thriving. More keen for a half hour of internet (and a hash brown) than brekky, because I wanted to pop a mini update online before we head off. Stayed at the lovely Lancaster Gate Hotel last night – a brilliant option because it’s only minutes walk from Hyde Park, Kensington Park, Bayswater and Queensway Tubes and shopping precincts. My room was clean, comfortable and I was very happy to have a chance to unwind from the flight in a warm bath yesterday afternoon. Will definitely add a positive review for this property on TripAdvisor. It’s also conveniently the pick-up point for our Back Roads tour this morning. Speaking of which… better eat my porridge (yes, I did make a sensible breakfast choice after all) because I’m boarding the coach soon. Have a great day / night wherever you may be in the world. SB x
