    You did a great job confusing me about planning my trip. 😏 Probably I'll stay there forever so that I'll have experience of all the months. 🙈😍

    Hey Love and London! I know you say that you shouldn't really talk to strangers in London because people keep to themselves. But what about meeting people you are interested in like girls to date and what not, how does that work in London? In the US going up to a girl you are interested in chatting them up a bit and getting their number is acceptable, is it not that way in London?

  13. Sheronda Lewis says

    Thanks for this! Will go in Oct but, other birthdays in Aug: the late Queen Mom and Duchess Meghan….and theirs on the same day!
