Last day in London

This week we spent a couple of days in Paris, rode a highspeed train from London to Paris and under the English Channel, and then we are spending the last couple of days back in London.

Unfortunately we have no US power plugs here at the hotel in London so our computer and cell phones are dead, and I'm typing this from an internet kiosk in the Hotel. So we feel just a bit disconnected.

In Paris we saw the Arc D'Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Musee D'Orsay and walked up and down Champs-Elysees. All things I started to think I may never get to do. The Louvre was amazing and I could have spent 2-3 days in there if I had the time.

And yesterday was our Beatles exploration day, with trips to Abbey Road, and yes we have lots of pictures and even video. We left some graffitti on the front of Abbey Road studios and learned how to use "The Tube", which is London's underground subway/train transportation.

Tonight our last event will be the musical Wicked and we will be seeing it at the Victoria Apollo Theatre in London's West End. And tomorrow we get to go back home, which both Jacki and I are looking forward to.

I should be back online Saturday night and will post photo and video highlights.

Jacki and I have been in London for the last few days before we head off to Paris. It's been a busy few days and it will only get more packed as we head to France on Monday.

I have lots of pictures to share and will have those online soon.

The reason I'm over here in the first place is Virgin Mobile USA selected me as part of their annual Virgin Stars. My reward dinner was with other stars from Virgin companies worldwide and with our special dinner guest Sir Richard Branson. Dinner was amazing and it was great getting to socialize with people from all over including England, South Africa, Canada, Australia, and even the US.

I'll get pictures and more stories posted soon.
