Surprisingly, the RAV was not only at Heathrow long term car park when we arrived back from our 3 days in Prague but it started…:D.you have no idea the relief that coursed straight through our bodies when the engine kicked over. Once we had accomplished this task we set out for the 90 minute drive back to Newchurch for the next 3½ days. That’s right, 3½ days only before our next sojourn, as on Saturday morning we catch the train back up to London. Gary has his last ticket to see his beloved Spurs play at White Hart Lane, on this trip anyway. They are playing Bolton, so fingers crossed it’s a win for Spurs this Saturday. We have decided to take the opportunity to re-visit London to complete what we were unable to do on our last visit….i.e. Harrods; Westminster Abbey & Cathedral; St. Pauls; etc. As our stay at the Park Plaza – Westminster Bridge exceeded our expectations we have again booked to stay there. So whilst Gary is at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon, I’ll either explore on my own or relax back in our hotel (mmm…. perhaps a massage or spa treatment may be the go).
Apart from the absolutely freezing temperatures that we experienced in Prague – it never managed to get above – 5C (that’s MINUS 5) all day, any day that we were there; it is a beautiful city in which to spend a few days. We will return to see Prague in the summertime one day, hopefully in the not too distant future. We had a number of Cities to choose from for these 3 days away but it was only on the insistence of Rosemary & Rodney that we decided to actually visit there, and we certainly weren’t disappointed in any way. So, thank you R & R for your wonderful recommendation….we owe you.
As I said earlier we are only back here in Newchurch until early Saturday morning, really just to get the washing & ironing done. Not much time for anything else. Apart from having to go & collect the Mercedes from the mechanics tomorrow, fingers crossed everyone that it has been repaired and we have no further issues with this damn car.
As you will no doubt notice Lynette has returned to the prose for our blog – Gary’s turn at writing our blog whilst in Prague has come to an end.
