It’s been 4 years ago. Yes, it’s been that long since we visited the United Kingdom, but that experience is still vividly remembered. I remember that early morning when we landed at the Gatwick Airport, I was still so groggy from that 7 hours flight from New York.
We didn’t have that much time though, as we stayed mostly in London for 5 days. There’s a lot of sights to see. Of course, going to Buckingham Palace was the highlight of the visit for me. I was just too excited to visit the Queen *lol*. Oh, and how can I forget, the London Bridge. The next time, if ever there’s a next time, which I hope there will be, I am looking forward to visiting Edinburgh and Manchester.
Edinburgh, traditionally beautiful as it is, plus it’s renowned museums and galleries must be awesome. Add to that, the castle in Scotland right within the background, is probably a sight to behold. Finding Edinburgh accommodation
is not a problem, I know. Edinburgh Hotels
are aplenty. I have checked out on the Scotsman Hotel.
It’s a 5 star hotel with high end amenities and it’s located conveniently near Waverley Railway Station. There are restaurants, a pool and a spa within the hotel.
What about Manchester? Visiting the two places while in the UK already is a wise move. It will surely be a nice experience to be able to breath in and have a taste of the great British culture. There’s Heaton Park where we can see their horticultural center and lush garden. Oh, and the contemporary art galleries. How can we miss the Cornerhouse which has three galleries exhibiting art, sculpture and photography. Looking for Manchester accommodation
is surely a breeze. I have my eyes set on Lowry Hotel.
Of course, another 5 star accommodation for the 5 star loving husband. Lowry’s rooms are supposed to be the ultimate in 5 star luxury with it’s minimalist and contemporary decor.
Now, the husband is not even aware of my “grand” plan. I am really wishing we’re going back to the United Kingdom. I better work on being a “real good wife”. Who knows, Christmas is just around the corner. A trip to the UK won’t be a bad Holiday present, right?
