As the title says, it is nine weeks until our trip. In fact, the flight is scheduled to depart a little after midnight on Friday night/Saturday morning so we will definitely be in London in nine weeks.
Thanks to the wonders of Google Maps I have been able to pinpoint where we will be staying and have worked out that we will easily be able to walk from Paddington Station to our accommodation which is approximately 600 metres from the station.
I have discovered all sorts of gems while trawling the internet. One is that 200 seats are available by open ballot for the ‘Last Night of the Proms’ concert. It is 5 days before the end of our trip and our tentative itinerary has us in Cornwall. Nevertheless, I have entered the ballot and will change the itinerary if we are lucky enough to be successful. I know that it is a very slim chance but you have to be in it to win it. We will know whether or not we have been successful in the second week of July, well before we leave.
