• Qbic Hotel London: 3ten.ca

    Travel: Qbic Hotel

    The Qbic Hotel in London is a sweet little place that’s reasonably priced and close to the tube. They market themselves as a eco-sustainable hotel, which is important in this day and age. Check out their site for more info. Qbic Hotel In the lobby you’ll notice a huge open space – they have a restaurant and bar. We found it over priced for the quality of the food, so we never ate there. Yet, I love the lobby bathroom – such creativity in design.…

    Travel: Victoria and Albert Museum

    The Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Oh my goodness, this place is massive and so awesome! Jewelry, furniture, and dinnerware were my favourite exhibits – and photography. Silly me, I initially thought that the museum would be all about Victoria and Albert. We really like them and enjoy watching Victoria on PBS – such a great show. So, in looking back, I should have put it together – they loved of the arts, thus an epic museum to hold all items that are representative…

  • Michelin House: 3ten.ca

    Travel: Michelin House

    Michelin House is the home to Claude Bosi’s restaurant, Bibendum and it’s worth the visit. The building, the stained glass, and the atmosphere are all in balance with the service, and the food. Oh, the food! Classically French dishes served in a modern and thoughtful way is what Bibendum is about. I’m not usually a chatty with the server when we’re at restaurants – Bryce and I enjoy each other’s company and we usually know what to expect. Yet here, there were so many new…

  • Sea Life Aquarium: 3ten.ca

    Travel: Sea Life Aquarium

    Sea Life Aquarium is one of London’s best sights. Seriously. We love our aquariums – we’ve been to the Vancouver Aquarium, the one in Seattle, and the Shedd Aquarium, too. This one brought a whole new dynamic with it – mainly because it tied in a lot of London history (like the pollution in the Thames River). The entrance is small and down on the river walk area by the London Eye. If you’re like me and have things planned out, then buy your tickets…

  • Westminster Abbey: 3ten.ca

    Travel: Westminster Abbey

    Westminster Abbey – that’s right, back to London after celebrating a delicious American Thanksgiving. Okay, we’re not technically heading back, but rather revisiting photos from our September trip and I’m back to sharing. If you’re visiting London, then you should most definitely check out this historical gothic church. The tour is a bonus and I would recommend it very much. It’s the same sort of tour you’d take when you visit Westminster Palace. Handheld audio guide. Note, you can’t take any photos inside of the…
