Trip Report Autumn in London

Jump to last reply

We are in London for one precious week. It is autumn, and today London was absolutely glorious. Sunshine, no-wind-no-rain! Autumn leaves, the air crisp but not cold. Halloween decorations everywhere. A cute little girl dressed like a pumpkin. A young woman in her pedicab (those bikes with seats that you can rent when you do not want to walk) – dressed in orange with very impressive orange make-up and huge black circles around her eyes, furiously peddling two serious young businessmen working their phones. All part of London, this wonderfully grand old city!

We are staying in a charming apartment that we rent from LONDON CONNECTION. I heartily recommend them. We have a 2-bedroomed place, with kitchen and living room, for exactly the same price that I paid previously for a ‘standard double’ in a 4-star hotel. I love having an apartment. One bonus is that you do not have to eat every meal in restaurants. This will not be to everybody’s taste, but the joy of a quick steak, a big salad and a good Merlot without spending a fortune …to me it makes sense. We have a washing machine, comfy beds, a well-equipped kitchen, a very central location. This is our place:

Within five minutes’ walk we have a good M & S, a Tesco, Leicester Square Tube Station. Trafalgar Square is 6 - 10 minutes away (depending on how fast you walk!).
