3 Enticing Reasons to Vacation in London


If Paris is the city of love, then London would be the city to fall in love with. There is an air about the city that is hard to capture in mere words. Despite being one of the busiest financial hubs in the world, London retains its old charm in majestic buildings, lush green parks, beautiful manors, and let’s not forget the iconic London bridge.  If that isn’t enough to get you packing and planning a trip to London, here are a few reasons why the royal city of London never fails to entice.

Getting around is a breeze
From metro stations to red London buses, getting around the city is highly convenient. Grab a map, and explore the city at your own leisure. If you’re on a tight budget, check out the Cheap London Hotels Guide for deals that are a steal ! One good tip would be to look for accommodation that will be close to the attractions you’re interested in visiting as that would save you a lot of time and hassle.
Allow yourself to get lost
London is a city that is full of surprises. Wander down an alley, and you may stumble upon quaint cafes with some of the city’s best teas. Or stroll down a lane, and you’ll be amazed at eclectic range of entertainment and stores for you to lose yourself in. Free up a day, and let your mind and soul wander. You’ll be glad you did.

Take a break from life
As hard as it may be to believe, you could lose your worries in the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of London. It may be England’s busiest city, but there are lots of options to suit every traveler. Take an evening to watch a musical in London’s famous West End, or splurge and reward yourself with a sumptuous meal at one of the city’s many gourmet offerings, take a break, you’ve earned it.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
