Things to Look Forward To

Guess what I just did???

I'm officially booked on the Eurostar train out of London to Paris on Monday, June 30th! The round-trip only cost about $180, which is a great price on its own, but even better considering my London research/conference trip is now completely covered by research and travel funds!

As if that weren't enough to put a smile on my face...

I'm also booked for a matinee showing of Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End! The operator I just spoke with had the cutest British accent I've ever heard (not that I've heard many), and she was great about letting me know I could get better seats at the matinee rather than the evening show. I prefer the evening show, but the available seats were only going to be average. I figure if I'm going to the theatah in London - to see Phantom nonetheless - I want great seats! My plan is to watch the show then take in a really nice dinner somewhere and finish the evening by shopping for family and friends.

Now to plan the rest of my time and travel in England...Cheerio!

How exciting! There is a very cheap but tasty restaurant off of Picadilly (which probably isn't too far from where the theater is) that offers fixed price dinners with three courses for around 12 pounds or so (at least assuming it is still open; I haven't been in London for 4 years). It is called the Stock Pot; I'll see if I can find the address in one of our guidebooks. It isn't fancy, but as I recall, it had a wide variety of foods all at reasonable prices.
