Thanks for this amazing article about the British Museum. I visited on my last trip to this museum when I stayed at the Grand Plaza Hotel London, which was close to it and to travel that amazing building was so easy for me.

My favorite part of the British Museum was the building itself.

All Aboard the Holiday Train

Here’s a quick NYC post in between all the London pics. If you’re in town on a Sunday, take a ride aboard the vintage MTA holiday train which runs between 2nd avenue and queens plaza. It’s a perfectly festive ride for anyone headed to the holiday market shops in Bryant Park!

Hi Sher,

I am so glad you commented on my blog, I really love your photographs and am gradually working my way through your lovely posts!

This photo is of the Piazza in Covent Garden too, I used to work around there and loved spending my lunch breaks in the square every day – watching the people perform in front of crowds. I even bumped into Vivienne Westwood there one day and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid from Harry Potter) on another…

It used to be a flower market a long time ago and is one of the oldest parts of London.

Hope you enjoyed your time in London!

Aw I’m glad you took a peek over here, great to finally know what that square actually was! It was definitely such a cute area – I stumbled on it since we were staying with a British friend who lived by Covent Garden.

Thanks for stopping by :)
