London Tomorrow, by Proxy

I'll be in London tomorrow....by proxy. My brother and his wife are touring a few places across the pond over the next 10 days. Next stop -- London.

Now I'm not sure where they are staying or what they'll be doing, but I can guess that it wouldn't probably be what I would pick. We're family but different in many ways, one of which is the way we choose to travel.

I always go for an interesting hotel, an unexplored area of town, a list of new and chic restaurants and foods to try. I don't think they do those things so much. I think they go a bit more by the tourist manual and are probably a bit more budget minded than I. And that's okay, as long as they enjoy themselves. God knows they'll probably spend half of what I do on a trip like that and will have a great time, all the same.

And while I don't really wish to travel with them -- we'd be in a constant clash of cultures -- I can't help but be a little envious that they will be in one of my favorite cities tomorrow, and I am here working. *sigh* How things have changed. :)

Off topic, but I've been watching The Tudors over here, I only decided to give it a watch from what you said months ago, I love it!

Oh it's a guilty pleasure of a show. The costumes are fabulous, even though they're only on the actors half the time. The bare breast count is definitely off the charts!

But don't you think Henry Cavill is hot...even though he plays a bit of a cad. I expect to see him a lot more in the future.
