Topping off a beautiful vacation
Posted Apr 7, 2014
While planning a vacation to Seville, Spain, I decided to spend a few days in the London area. I did not want to stay in the middle of the city. I chose Wimbledon and went on line to find a hotel. Used Google Earth to see the hotel and area. I had my daughter make the arrangements. I arrived early from Gatwick and left my bags at the Hotel. Went walking and after three hours I was out at the Wimbledon Courts. Met Maggie and asked for direction back to the hotel. She took pity on a lost Canadian and drove me back to the Hotel. Where ever you are, Maggie, thank you for the drive. By this time my room was ready. It was small but had everything that I needed. My bathroom was on the main floor and this gave me an at home feeling. The Hotel staff were exceptionally nice. Ursula, thank you for the coffees. The Hotel is five minutes walk from the Wimbledon train station. Wimbledon is 30 minutes from Waterloo station by train. I spent two days site seeing and visiting along the Themes. I found that traveling around London was easy using the trains and the underground.
