London Trip

Business/vacation trip to London, Mar 11-17, 2004

This spring, a potential customer asked for a meeting in their London office. 3000 miles is a long way to go for a two-hour meeting, so I combined business with some pleasure. After concluding a successful meeting in London's Bond Street district, I hopped on the trains and visited two of England's finest remaining medieval towns.  First I went to Rye, a former seaport on the English Channel. Rye is a couple of train stops east of Hastings.  After staying in Rye for two nights, I took the train northwest to Warwick.  Warwick is home to the finest medieval castle in England, Warwick Castle.  I was in heaven.

The London report is divided into two pages, one for Rye and one for Warwick.  Happy surfing!

Here's what I look like when I am pretending to be a fast-track globe-trotting business person.  Do I look like I'm ready to join the cast of The Apprentice yet??
