So, hopped on a British Airways 747, London had no clouds (shock!) so took an overhead shot; then once on the ground, went to the former location of the Embassy of the Republic of Texas. After that’s met up with Paula and World and went to the Starfury New Year’s Eve party at the Renaissance Hotel by Heathrow airport.
The party was a bust because it basically just one big room and a DJ playing songs and, well, it was really not that great. The hotel itself was okay, we mostly spent our time in the concierge lounge and at the hotel restaurant. They had Caffrey’s! Cool beans. But, it gets sinister after that…
The Marriott Renaissance Hotel Heathrow sucked big time on New Year’s Eve. After trying to get a bottle of Champagne near midnight on the 31st, they said their registers were down and could not server any drinks. This is beyond lack of customer service, it is an calculated active screw over all the customers move. The Renaissance Hotel Heathrow actually snubbed all of the guest at the hotel and held a mini-party at the closed bar for the staff! The entire staff at the bar and front desk of the Renaissance Hotel Heathrow needs to be made redundant and re-staffed. Horrific that they would pull that kind of stunt. They could have easily have had their mini-party in the corner without bothering massively inconveniencing guests at the hotel! And it wasn’t “any other day”, it was New Year’s Eve of all days! Absolutely not-brilliant! I, along with others at the hotel for New Years’ Eve were extremely not pleased. I certainly will not go back to the Renaissance Hotel Heathrow ever. I 100% dis-recommend Renaissance Hotel Heathrow.
Well, other than the bad New Year’s Eve moment, Paula, World, and I did have an entertaining weekend. Even the disaster was entertaining – after the fact next day, of course 🙂

So, okay, I don’t even recall which city this was in. Went with Joel and Miriam Bader, Joel driving.
Took a few pictures. Should have taken more. Oh well 🙂 The grounds were huge. I used to go to the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin (south of Milwaukee near the Illinois border). Size wise, I’d say it was at least twice as big I think? It’s all circular so I may have misjudged the size. Anyway, it was a day of fun! Click on the pic or link below for more pictures:

SO, Over the years, I go to London and meet up with Paula and World (not his real name) in London. So I thought it would be good to go meet them where they live – in Colchester. About an hour away by train from central London…
So Colchester is to the east of London. I also circled Penzance which has nothing to do with this current story but I thought it would be cool to visit since it’s all the way “at the end” of England. And yes, that’s where the “Pirates of Penzance” by Gilbert and Sullivan occur…
But I digress. So here are the pictures from flight (outgoing via AA Boeing 787), my visit to Sherlock Holmes by Charring Cross (of course as usual, etc.), my stay this time at the InterContinental by O2 (that’s oh-two, not zero-two) and of course pics at Colchester and there was a Colchester festival going on, a few pics are from there… Sorry I didn’t annotate the pics well this time.
