Where do you want to go? Near? Far?
Me? I'm headed across the pond. Surprised? I didn't think so.
And I know where I'll be staying.
The Lime Tree Hotel in Belgravia, London.
Before all this covid mess, the hotel was going through refurbishments. Obviously, the re-opening has been put on hold, but when it's time, I'm there.
It's a home away from home. Cozy, intimate, clean, refreshing. Centrally located, the hotel is the best stay in London.
Their website is inviting.
Lime Tree Hotel in London.
The refurbishment looks amazing.
Only a matter of time before I see with my own eyes.

Anglotopia. The Magazine for Anglophiles
There's a slang page.
Lorry=A semi or truck
Bonnet=hood of car
Tipping Down=Raining heavily
You get the picture.
There's a book page which gives titles of books to read relating to England. I refer to them often.
Recipes for scones, shepherds pie and other English favorites.
Articles about historical figures such as : Henry VIII, Alfred the Great, Richard III, Queen Anne.
Sites to visit: Oxford, Canterbury Cathedral, Emma Bridgewater, Exploring Leeds, Twinings Tea to name a few.
Research on the London Blitz, The Spitfire, The National Trust, The Great Smog of 1952, History of the Mini Cooper. The list is endless.
You will go down many rabbit holes getting lost in the wonder of it all. A great escape. The hours will pass without a thought. But you won't care, for you've found pure enchantment.
