Texan London Tour – Part One

OK, so I’ve been planning on publishing this post for months now, as a report on when I took my friends who visited from America and played tour guide around London!  I really wanted it to be a bit more interesting than just a list of places – but as it’s so very late, I’ll stick with what I’ve done so far:

Part of my MBA course this semester was to collaborate on a project with a group from another business school.  Our group were the lucky ones to collaborate with Texas Tech University (TTU) – Rawls College of Business.  The UK team went over to Lubbock, TX at the end of January (with NO time to recover from our exams!) and spend a great 4 days getting to know the group and making a start on the project tasks.  During the last week in May, the TTU team made a return visit to UH to complete the project, and present our findings to our client.  Out of all the teams that went abroad for our projects, ours was the only one to get a return visit from our counterparts!

We were extremely lucky to work with such a friendly group of people (both students and lecturers), and I think it’s safe to say that we’ll all be friends for life!

For the first three days (prior to the “official” visit to the UH), I spent the weekend with Tas and Katy from the US team in London – with my tour guide hat on, a tube map, and Google maps on standby (& some comfortable shoes!).  I’m not exaggerating by saying that we walked miles and MILES in such a sort time!  To help out my US buddies – here’s a guide to where we actually went day by day – with maps and photos!

As there is a lot to tell – I’ll be breaking this down into a few parts: Part One (you’re looking at it) – Part Two [Link Coming SOON!]

Waddeston Manor & Many Ferrari’s

On a whim this Sunday; Me, Mum and Dad visited Waddeston Manor and had “afternoon tea”. The weather was lovely, the house is (as always) very impressive, the gardens were great (I personally like the aviary, with many strange specimens of birds), and we happened to stumble upon the “Ferrari owner’s club annual picnic”.
