You'll love it honestly lol we talk funny but once you get over that you'll be fine lol

 

London is a real mix of cultures and a lot of americans there. If you get a chance head north it gets better and better lol I am biased tho :-)

I was hoping you'd see this! Do you know the Battersea area, or the area where our apt. is at all? I'm afraid it looks so industrial and not very "neighborhoody" ... per Google maps, that is.

I don't really know london very well but I think battersea is ok but i think london is industrial and it isn't "neighborhoody" what I know of anyway. There will be some places like that tho.

London is great saying that its a total mix of cultures and you will like it and its certainly a lot warmer than where i am lol

If you are going to work in Manchester that is much more friendly but colder lol

I don't think I"d be going to Manchester, but just might do some remote (at-home) work for a client there.

 

I know the actual office where Paul is working is closer to Wimbledon ... actually, New Malden, I think that's where the office is.

I hear wimbledon is ok - there are good and bad places where ever you live in the world. You will like it tho - I like London but its a lot busier than where i am and if you ever get that cheesed off contact me and i'll try and get down there lol

 

If you get time off tho try and explore especially scotland its amazing.

Oh I know there are bad places everywhere, but since I get to pick where we live - I'd love to pick one that wasn't bad! lol

Per Google Maps (Street View) it looks pretty industrial right around the apt. building, but if you go a few blocks in either direction, it gets better. We may send our co-worker over there to check it out in person. I'll feel better if someoen I trust gives it the thumbs up first!

I can totally understand your initial dilemma but now that it's pretty much happening, I am so excited for you!!! There is so much opportunity for you, I wouldn't want you to regret not going.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
