I have to say when I arrived at this hotel the first time I was not impressed at all. The receptionist's body language was very negative, she didn't stand up to greet me or smile at me and actually turned away after she spoke to me. It was a different story when I returned later to check-in properly. The two guys on the desk couldn't be more helpful and the room was lovely. I opted to pay for breakfast which is offered at a discount if you book the night before and at £8 is great value for money. I can see how this hotel is popular for weddings and other special occasions as it is set in fabulous grounds. The breakfast was good quality and when I checked out the two ladies at reception again couldn't be more helpful.

So a short but sweet start to both my trip and blog. First stop on my round world extravaganza, London, very exotic. The purpose of going to London first up was to get my ancestry visa validated. It's added about 24 hours to my journey and goodness knows how many timezones, but I got that Visa validated so I don't have to worry about it anymore, and as a result had a five day stop over with the Dansey family. To be honest after an exhausting last few weeks before I ...
We couldn't leave England without a visit to the Queen herself. Her Majesty's Lady in Waiting passed that she was regrettably unable to attend our wedding in 2013. We knew that sending her a late invite was a long shot since we were already on such a short timeframe for the wedding. We drove straight to Windsor and made our way to the castle where the Queen lives. Since her castle ...
... sky; a perfect day to watch the red coats show off their stuff. First we witness an inspection of the guards, a nit picking of the new guard’s uniforms while the old guard looks on. Then officers march back and forth, seemingly with no purpose; it portends something impressive is about to happen.
Not far away we hear a band. The music gets louder as the red-coated, tall bear hat ...
... the changing of the guard. They do this every three hours or so and it is a 30 minute production with a full band and everything. I grabbed a sandwich and then headed back to bus so that I wouldn't be late. Our guide gave us a stern warning not to be late before we first left because we were on a very tight schedule, but of course two ladies rolled up 10 minutes late. Thanks gals for throwing the whole groove off. Next stop was city bath which ...
... and the service there is very friendly and welcoming. Most of the clients are british so this is not a particularly tourist joint. The walls are covered with old pictures in black and white and posters of wine or other liquor, and there are lit candles on pretty much every table. 3 amazingly efficient old fireplaces keep the place warm and add such a beautiful atmosphere. We basically spent at least 2 hours daily there after our expeditions. Sam and Tracy ...
