The “Adventure” has begun for Robert and Diane as they headed to London this week to catch up with family and friends and to make the pilgrimage to the MINI birthplace. Follow along as Robert and Diane send back pictures of their “Most Excellent Adventure” to the Motherland.
London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom, the largest metropolitan area of the country and among the most populated in Europe. Located on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who called it Londinium. London’s ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its square-mile medieval boundaries. Since at least the 19th century, the name London has also referred to the metropolis developed around this core. The bulk of this conurbation forms the London region and the Greater London administrative area, governed by the elected Mayor of London and the London Assembly.
Enough with the history lesson; keep sending us those pictures!
