I often wonder if there is a thing as a British person being born in an American body. Of course, I am a patriot and love my native land. However, my inner Anglophile blossomed at an early age. Perhaps it was because my parents read to me about the adventures of the woodland creatures of Wind Through the Willows. I also enjoyed the marmalade-loving Paddington Bear and all the little rabbits of Beatrice Potter. My little mind often contemplated what a wonderful place England must be.
When I got older, I read a lot of classic novels set in Great Britain. I dreamed of having lavish tea parties set with tea, scones, crumpets, clotted cream, cucumber sandwiches, and an assortment of dainty petit-fours. I wanted to marry a charming British nobleman live as the Lady of the Manor in a classic hillside mansion. Then, I sometimes thought I would be happy marrying into the working class and having a little stone cottage with a white picket fence and a rambling English garden.
What would it be like to ride on the famous double decker buses around London! I wanted to be able to set my watch to the chimes of Big Ben and walk along the meandering Thames River. How exhilarating in would be to wonder the English country side and have splendid picnics of cold chicken and lemonade! I vowed that when I was an adult, I would save up my money to have a British excursion to do all the things I dreamed.
When I graduated from high school, I got a scholarship to attend our local university as an art history major. Art and literature were some of my greatest passions. I hoped that pursuing my Master of Fine Arts degree would open a lot of doors for me as far as travel in Europe—especially England. In May of this year, my dreams came true and I was able to spend a couple weeks in London.
To find my London vacation rental, I used WorldEscape a premier travel service that specialize in European destinations. It is ran by family and was one of the first travel services to start Internet bookings. They arranged everything for me, including the charming bed and breakfast where I stayed. The friendly and experienced staff of WorldEscape knew the best ways of seeing all the major sites and doing the things I have dreamed of doing in England.
WorldEscape also can make accommodations for clients in luxury hotels, apartments, and budget-friendly youth hostels. They made my stay in London everything that I wanted it to be. Next year, I am going back and may take a jog over to Scotland. World Escapes is definitely the travel service that I would recommend for anyone planning a trip to the UK.
