I loved London when I was there. It is a city with such a rich background. It almost made me feel, with real weight, what the word "history" means.
But there was one thing I didn't like. I also felt, with real weight, what the word "expensive" means. It is not a city where things come cheap, and I was a little caught off guard there with just how expensive everything is.
It wasn't easy, back in those days, to find cheap hotels in London. Thankfully, the Internet has revolutionized travel, and makes finding London's discount hotels just a little easier... well, a lot easier, really... than it used to be.
