7.08am, Tuesday 21st September, London Bridge, London, England, UK
Another stellar autumnal morning in London, and I’m packing up and leaving town for eight days. Firstly we head south for Portsmouth , then the big drive north to Windemere in The Lakes District, then into my equal favourite area of England with Devon – the Grim North around Manchester – then on up into Scotland with a five-night stand in Edinburgh.
I didn’t get a chance to write up Roadtrip Stop 5 – The Bell Dinner at Skenfrith, Wales – so I’ll save that till I get back and do it properly – it deserves it!
Plus we had an outstanding day in London city yesterday – with the sommelier brigade and some stunning Pan Asian fusion food and wine matching at Cocoon, and a group of Majestic store managers at our annual after-work seminar at The Phoenix pub – Victoria. I’ll catch all of that up somewhere on the road over the next few days – as well as whatever new adventures we stumble into. See you out there.
