As many of you know (well, at least those of you who know us outside of the blogosphere), Libby and I usually travel to England each year to stay at our wonderful “fractional ownership property” (i.e., timeshare) in central London. However, this year we’ve passed on the Allen House in Kensington and opted for the Eastern Mediterranean (this past spring) and Alaska (right now) instead.

This is our first annual break from visiting London in 10 years!

Why the change? Libby really wanted to “do something relaxing” but also “something different.” And, what the pregnant lady wants, the pregnant lady gets.

To that end, a cruise of Alaska this summer seemed like a perfect fit.

Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about the Allen House. It won’t be lonely or go unused. Libby’s parents are taking our place this year (leaving today, August 7)!

As devout fellow travelers, we’re sure they’ll have a great time. I just hope they remember to eat a pasty from the West Cornwall Pasty Co. and one of Ben’s Cookies for us. Those are two of the London staples we’ll miss, along with Monmouth Coffee and pork & stilton burgers at the Borough Market. We’ll also miss our visits to the theatre and the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition, as well as numerous other art shows and museums.

Have a great time, Mom and Dad!

    Oh, tell them to eat a pasty for me as well, soaked in malt vinegar…my word, you just made me hungry. Entirely too long since I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy one!
