Where did we go?

Shakespeare’s Globe Theater

Tate Modern

and the Modern Couples Exhibit at the Barbican Museum.

Shangri-La Hotel, At the Shard, London even had a special map for us with points of interest on our walk to the Barbican.

Borough Market was fully decorated for the Christmas holidays during our trip Dec 1-3, 2018.

Make sure to stop for a photo at the wall of hearts and love!

At Tate Modern, I saw an exhibit of Jenny Holzer’s work which I had recently seen at the new Comcast Tower in Philadelphia.

On our walk to the Barbican, I loved seeing the old city wall of London. Walking in London you can feel the history of the city. From Shakespeare’s Globe Theater to the old city walls, it is such a different perspective than walking around a young city like Los Angeles

We lunched around the corner from the museum at The Coriander. Spending time with Julie and Nancy was special to me because I worked with both of them onboard Princess Cruises. I feel fortunate to have fantastic supportive friends like them who are willing to travel with me.

As we walked back, we wandered through St. Paul’s Churchyard and walked across the Millennium Footbridge.

At night, we walked across Tower Bridge and enjoyed the views of Tower Bridge from our stunning hotel.

We loved the views from Shangri-La Hotel,  At the Shard, London. See more in the next video all about the property with my gorgeous suite, the highest sky pool in all of Western Europe and GONG the Sky Bar.

Julie and I loved the view so much we had a picnic in our room in our robes.

Pick your robe: a white terry cloth robe or a Japanese yukata robe. I wore a yukata to the 52nd floor to visit the Sky Pool, GONG the sky bar and work out at the fitness center with a view.. This is the highest pool in Western Europe!
