Looking forward to meeting others in the London group for Aug 24 - Sept 2. I will stay open to possibilities as I explore sites not listed on our itinerary -SO much to do- so little time! Hotel change seems to add to walking possibilities and sites in our 'free time', evening shows, etc.
Safe travels, fellow Road Scholars. Bobbi

Hi - since you will be back before we leave (Oct 5) we would appreciate any post trip comments you would care to share.
Bobbi M-L Aug 15, 2015 at 06:40 PM

Yes- I had thought to do that - Will be glad to note significant helps for you and your fellow travelers! I hope I well still have access to this site - but will use the more open, general site, if needed.

Bobbi M-L Jul 29, 2015 at 07:39 AM

Are there any other solo participants for the Aug 24 departure? I will beleaving out of Boston- but look forward to meeting others with like interests - I have lots!
no roommate at the moment. Looks like it will be a surprise at the hotel?! Has anyone ever done this before with Road Scholar?

Bobbi M-L Jul 29, 2015 at 07:36 AM

Peter, I am doing something similar on the Aug 24 departure, but out of Boston. Booked outings from home to go to Stonehenge and a reply came through that the roads are being worked on, passage was a challenge and some trips were going to be cancelled, Beware- might plan alternately.
There are several choices and I will be able to add some day trips for reasonable cost.
Is this your first trip to London?
Peter Griffin Jul 29, 2015 at 10:14 AM

Bobbi - Thx for the heads up re Stonehedge... will check b/4 leaving. Perhaps the road work w/b completed by Oct.
Peter Griffin Jul 29, 2015 at 10:49 AM

HENGE - it's StoneHENGE...I hate autocorrect. Yes, this is our 1st trip to England. Sorry we will not have the benefit of your experience.

Peter Griffin Jul 20, 2015 at 02:39 PM

Leaving from Dulles, we are on the 10/5 trip and are planning to stay over a day or two to visit Stonehenge, Bath, and Bristol. Anyone else?
Conceicao Andrade Jul 23, 2015 at 11:44 AM

I'm leaving from Dulles too on the 27th, on British Airways. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Conceicao Andrade Jul 23, 2015 at 11:49 AM

On the July trip.

Sally Dedecker Jul 13, 2015 at 09:55 AM

I am on the 9/28 group leaving out of Newark. Anyone else with similar plans?

Bobbi M-L Jun 29, 2015 at 08:35 AM

This my first time with Road Scholar- August 24 group- looking forward to every detail. Will be solo, but am hoping to fill free time with simple, but iconic London experiences. Hoping to meet someone for tea times! SO excited to finally be doing this! Any free time ideas appreciated ( I WILL be packing light!)

Joyce Freeman May 29, 2015 at 03:23 PM

Booked London's Cultural Heritage for Oct.5th. Leaving from NYC/JFK @ 8:30PM. Traveling solo. Anyone else with similar plans.

Barbara Angemi May 01, 2015 at 10:47 AM

I am on the London, October 5, 2015 program. My first solo trip so anxiety is high. I'm flying out of Miami. Is anyone in my area planning to be on this trip?
mary prince May 01, 2015 at 01:04 PM

I took this trip (alone) Aug 2014. RS does not tell who else will be on the trip and I had no luck contacting people on this board. However, if you are letting them arrange transport the travel connections are no problem. Good Luck!
Barbara Angemi May 02, 2015 at 11:18 AM

thank you. I'm really looking forward to this.
Joyce Freeman May 29, 2015 at 03:38 PM

Barbara, this will be my 9th trip solo. I always meet friendly people and I feel safe with RS. Looking forward to meeting you.
Barbara Angemi May 30, 2015 at 09:49 AM

Hi Joyce. 9th trip. WOW. I'll look forward to hearing about your previous travels. I've started to do some extra reading to prepare. Have you been to London on a previous trip?
Joyce Freeman May 31, 2015 at 10:32 AM

No, I haven't. Had tickets 25 yrs. ago & had to cancel due to family emergency. Have you been there before?
Barbara Angemi Jun 07, 2015 at 09:36 AM

Finally back to my computer! Many years ago I was in London for two days. It was a brief stop on the way to Spain. So much too see. I have been waiting for a chance to return. This trip was just what I had in mind.
