The man I call the Godfather of Travel, Arthur Frommer, just returned from London, and blogged about it.
Being away too long from London is something we have in common, and I’m still overdue for a return visit.
“I firmly believe that every human being should go there at least yearly,” he wrote. And I couldn’t agree more.
This is one of those places that cuts the cutting edge. Everything and everyone from everywhere. Food, clubs, music, architecture, a legion of cultures from around the world — if you can’t find it in London, it may not be worth being found.
If you told me boredom was illegal here, I’d have no trouble believing it.
In short, London has the power to overload every sense you own, including your sense of time. In those moments when you’re caught up in the city’s electric energy and youthful, multicultural vibe, it can startle you to realize that Roman legions once marched on some of these same streets.
Mentally, I am somewhere over the Atlantic, heading east. You should be, too.
