Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015


As an early adopter, nothing thrills me more than when a historical institution steeped in heritage embraces the social media movement. In this specific instance, the Royal Academy of Arts invited us blogging types for a special date. Where? Summer Exhibition 2015. Who? Me and my readers (that's you guys, reading about it now on my blog).

Scenes from Royal Ascot 2015


Should one depart from the conservative confines of the Royal Enclosure for the Grandstand, one would find a more colourful crowd which makes for a more amusing game of people-watching and a better look at the Royal Carriage - when I went in 2013, all the top hats blocked my view of the Queen, but happily this year I got my perfect photo of Her Majesty!

The wheels on the bus go yum and yum

Thistle Hotels arranged for a private bus tour around London with afternoon tea by BB Bakery - a tourist bus tour, in style.

I can't remember the last time I took public transport (definitely 2014, or earlier) as I have a real phobia of...the public. But there I was last Sunday, on a traditional London Routemaster having afternoon tea with the people from Thistle Hotel and BB Bakery, thinking: "Oh, this isn't so bad after all...TFL, take note!"
