Just arrived in our flat in London. Dumped our gear and headed out for lunch at the Town of Ramsgate Pub. Fish ‘n chips ‘n a pint. The weather is beautiful right now.
Life is good!
We rented a nearby flat for the month of July, using AirBnb. The listing for the flat is at http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2015390. The flat is located a 10-15 minute walk from the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
Probably the two worst things about the flat: (1) it was a walk up 3 flights which at the end of the day seemed like 10 floors; and (2) adjusting the shower to get warm water was a challenge. None the less, we loved the place and were very happy staying there. So much better than a hotel.We could see the Thames from our balcony and the Gherkin (a cool building in the City – see the pictures below) from our bedroom! We had one bedroom with a king-size bed and a living room with an Ikea couch that converted to another bed. There was a small table we used primarily for our laptops. The kitchen also housed a washing machine – the dryer was in the bedroom.
