I am a Travel Nut in so much as Mr TTR & I are both semi-retired…
Unfortunately I haven’t been to Europe yet (hope to soon as Retirement is official)
UK is first on our list… cannot wait to come over and see the country you call home…
Lol, we have a long list of places we want to see… figure we need at least 3 weeks maybe more to do it all.
Anyhow, I am sorry that I don’t know more to help you out… because I just am not that familiar with the UK, or even how far you could get from London for a decent holiday on $ 2000 to $ 4000
Hopefully, another Bee will be able to help you out.
In the meantime… *wink*
London, Ontario… is a decent sized city in Western Ontario… and it was indeed named after London England.
I provide the following link for your reading enjoyment = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London,_Ontario
Interesting fact, in this part of Ontario originally there were 3 cities named after European Capitals, the other 2 were Paris & Berlin… and geographically they lay in the correct order… with Berlin to the East, Paris in the middle, and London to the West.
BUT during WWI with the high loss of life of Canadian Soldiers… it was decided that Berlin would change its name to Kitchener… which is what it is known as today.
The Ontario Tri-City area… Cambridge-Kitchener-Waterloo is very pretty, and is the home to RIM (Blackberry fame) as well as a University, and it still has a large German population (including many Mennonites). Lol, it is also home to the worlds second biggest Oktoberfest after Munich… and Canada’s Thanksgiving Day Parade all of which are celebrated concurrently in October each year.
Lol… which brings me full circle… if you had a few more bucks maybe you could come here for your Honeymoon (of course I’m only half-serious)
