Booking hotels, flights and tickets of all sorts. Sitting hours, hours and more hours browsig all sorts of web sites - TALF among the both most frequented a useful ;-). Such is the way to prepare oneself for trip. Reading, thinking, writng itineraries - then reading some more....and which version of itinerary did we have already?
Well it may be a good time to just try relax. Of course diverting our minds very far from London could prove difficult ;-). So why not wander the streets, parks or riverbank with book and cup of good tea?
I suppose many here do just that, provided we drag ourselves far enough from keyboard and monitor ;-).
What are the books you reach for in such rare occasion? ;-)
I just started reading H V Morton's In search of London. I liked his style interweaving simple narative with historical backroound and bits of stories in both Traveller in Rome and Traveler in Italy. I found very interesting Peter Ackroyds London: The Biography. It is one of there book which can really extend list of places to look at and walk around while in London. (I read even Ingwoods History of London, but that is a bit diffrent sort of book ;-) ).
So may you share your favourite books?
