I'm just back from a trip to London, and all I can say is JET LAG. I love seeing the sights and doing new things, but I wish it were easier to get from point A to point B. Twenty-one hours of traveling on the return trip was a little too much, and now I'm paying for it with a foggy head and an achy back. Still, I'm glad I went.
--The Cleopatra exhibit at the British Museum. I've been watching Rome on HBO and have a renewed interest in Cleo. What an amazing woman. She'd make a great model for an Intrigue heroine. Or villain. hehehe
--Tea at the Coal Hole Pub. This was definitely not the Ritz or Harrods, but it was FUN.
--The historic pub tour. Apparently, Dickens and Shakespeare drank just about everywhere. Makes me wonder when they managed to do any writing. ;) Some of the pubs were downright creepy, and I got some new ideas for Intrigues.
--Watching the pigeon chasers in Trafalgar Square. These guys make $150,000 a year just to rid the square of pigeons. Can you imagine applying for a job like that? What kind of experience would you need? I used to chase squirrels from my bird feeders--does that count?
So, did you do any holiday traveling, or do you have vacation plans in your near future?
