Silver Travel Advisor Bag's Day Out

Good shots @applegroupie & a belated Happy Birthday.

I am reading a book where the author refers to “its” as he or she alternately to overcome this.

I don’t want to be labelled as sexist if I refer to Bag as a “She” but it has behaved like a DIVA many times. However, keep referring as “IT” is not a good compromise either. Can you think of an imaginative way to refer to this BAG or should it stay androgynous as “IT”!

I think it should be named BOB – Bolshie Obstreperous Bag

STA(R) Bag helped me celebrate my ? birthday with a day out at Bletchley Park on 24 July, one of the two hottest days of the year! I was wilting by the end of the day but Bag was still going strong.

But (s)he is SO much younger than you @applegroupie, so should be in ‘good fettle’. Bet it was a
really interesting day. Shame how his life ended.

Would Bag have been a good codebreaker for Alan Turing?

It would want its own office – looks like it has commandered one already!

Glad to hear you had such a good time @Lin (water and honey notwithstanding!).

Thanks for the update @Lin , strangely enough I did that exact walk along the canals on Tuesday.

Sorry, I was far too busy to reply! We stayed at St Giles Hotel right at the junction of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street. We’ve stayed there before and knew what to expect; basic but central, only yards away from the British Museum. However, I wouldn’t recommend it at this time of the year and in a heatwave. The hotel was incredibly busy with coachloads arriving every day, long waits for lifts and breakfast. Breakfast itself was disappointing: the food was unappetising and even basics like honey were unavailable. If it wasn’t included I would have eaten at one of the many cafes in Bloomsbury or Soho instead. The staff appeared powerless in the face of so many guests. For example, on a day when temperatures had reached 36degrees C, the only source of bottled water, the vending machines, had broken down. There was no obvious effort to repair, or even report, the machines only a suggestion that we could buy bottled water, at £4 a bottle, from the bar.
ON THE PLUS SIDE, HOWEVER: the staff were lovely and friendly, as helpful as they could be within the corporate dictates of the pack-em-in attitude of the St Giles corporation. And I can’t praise the location enough. We were within easy walking distance of Oxford Street, Charing Cross Road, the Chinese restaurants of Gerard St, British Museum and Soho. We walked to Camden and then did this canal walk in reverse: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/walking/walking-routes/little-venice-to-camden-walk
Walking to Camden and then continuing along the canal to Paddington Basin and carrying on walking through Hyde Park, up Piccadilly and through Soho back to the hotel. It was one of our more energetic holiday jaunts!
Despite the shortcomings, if you want to be in the swim of things, you can’t beat St Giles Hotel at the price. If you want service, luxury and a nice breakfast, try the Radisson round the corner.

There are definitely better views in London @Lin

Are you in town for a show or just exploring?
