In the summer of 2014, we did a 10 days UK tour together with our son. Yes, UK is not one of our favorite destinations, because they drive from the wrong side, and we can not rent a car and drive wherever we like. However;

1. We wanted to show our son where we studied in Leicester.

2. We wanted to visit Wales, the only part of the country we haven’t seen during our one year stay in UK.

3. We wanted to stay in London, to enjoy wine and dine.

So that’s how we started our UK adventure with many train journeys, starting from St. Pancras.

St. Pancras is a very nice train station, with lovely cafes and some nice shops, that may cause you to miss your train, if you are a shopaholic. So we enjoyed a nice French cafe & winebar “Des Vins”, with a nice decoration of brown brick walls full of photographs of Paris, and huge floor to ceiling windows, which makes it a lovely spot for our favorite “People Watch Activity”.
