My Love Of Travel – It Started In Lovely London

Life is constantly evolving, and you never know from day to day what the next day will have in store for you.   I made a post not too long ago, and just modified it now – Social Media and My Whirlwind Life, I also modified the page about me – About Luchanik Travel & Cruises.  Why?  Well, just two days ago, I finally made a decision – I no longer want to be a travel agent!

I’d now like to deviate, and focus on the place where it all started – England, and specifically lovely London!  My love of travel started right here, I have to say that one of the best places in the world is London. I can go back to London time and time again, and never be bored of seeing the same places….each time is like the first time.  I absolutely love it, and miss London a lot.

I really like going to this area of London – the Tower Bridge in the St. Katharine’s Dock area.

I also love seeing Buckingham Palace time and time again – let’s say I have a fascination with Royalty.

London has some beautiful museums, check out the Victoria and Albert Museum in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

You can’t go to London without checking the place Princess Diana called home – Kensington Palace

Don’t miss seeing London’s fantastic parks, complete with ponds, lakes, and ducks.

I just loved going in the Houses of Parliament and listening to how they argue.

I love Harrods of Knightsbridge, London – you just have to go in this amazing, but very expensive store.

This is close by to Harrods – stunning architecture in London, quite fabulous!

Now, one of the best photographs that I treasure is that of Princess Diana, and Dodi who were tragically killed in an accident when Diana was at her happiest.  I cried so much when Diana died, she was a childhood hero of mine, and I had even wanted to attend her wedding to Prince Charles – of course, I was not invited – so sad!  I was so happy to see a shrine dedicated to them in Harrods which at that time was owned by Dodi’s father – I’m not sure if he is still the current owner or not.

Harrods candy shop time and cappuccino time!  Of course, I also like to get a pot of tea when I go into Harrods, with a scone with clotted cream and jam, doesn’t that sound nice?  Oh, I crave for my English things!

    Wonderful London tour. Thank You.

    I have visited twice in Paris at the place where Princess Diana and Dodi died. It stops a man.

    Thank you so much, Matti for your comment. I don’t think I would like to visit the actual place where they died, I think it would be too sad for me. I actually would not mind visiting the hotel where Diana and Dodi stayed as I believe she was definitely happy there, but I just could not visit the scene of the crash. In addition to the the links with Diana, and the Royal Family, London is just a fabulously beautiful city full of history, great architecture and culture. I absolutely love London! I hope you have a fabulous weekend.
