Closing the Deal

When you ask people to shell out $3,000 for a 10-day tour of London and other parts of England, you'd better give them some good reasons why they should.

That's why our college is offering a free Information Session for a tour we've scheduled for March 15-24, 2013.  The Tour is Beatles-focused, with stops at all the famous Beatles "haunts," including Abbey Road, and a couple of days in Liverpool, the lads' birthplace.

Since not everyone is a Beatles fan, we've thrown in sidetrips to Stratford-Upon-Avon and Oxford.

The Information Session will be October 9 (which, coincidentally, is John Lennon's birthday).  If you're interested, more information is here.

Time Out

I know I shouldn't, but, honestly, I could easily spend all morning reading Time Out London.

Just try to resist its charms.

My Perfect Day in ________.

If you're a New York Times reader, you've probably run across this feature in the Travel section.

I so enjoy having other travelers  suggesting what sites they'd take in, where they'd stay, where they'd eat or drink a pint.

So, I'm "borrowing" this idea for Parkland and our travel tours.  Calling it "My Perfect Day in _______."

Since so many of you have traveled to London, will you let us know what your "perfect day in London" would look like?  Our Beatles Tour is scheduled for March 2013 and we'll have several days in London.

We'll post your suggestions here on our blog and on Facebook.

Many thanks.
