Get That Holiday Feeling

Some of you will have already been on your summer holidays. Hopefully you’re the one feeling relaxed and looking tanned, now counting down the days to Christmas! Others will have a holiday booked for the coming months and still have something to look forward to – that excitement as you watch the date draw closer and closer, getting your suitcase out of storage and dusting off your sun hat. Then there’s the third group of people – the unlucky ones who won’t be getting away for a holiday at all this summer. This could be for a variety of reasons; you may not have the funds available, or maybe you have too many work commitments. Whatever the reason is, there are some ways you can make it feel like a holiday, without leaving London!

In Waterloo, the River Thames runs alongside the London Eye. This is a nice place to take a stroll and is often packed with tourists who want to get a glimpse of some of the city’s famous landmarks. However, what many of them don’t know is that there’s a small beach that is accessible from here. It isn’t very large, but there is a strip of sand at Festival Pier with great views of the city across the river. Back in the good old days this used to be a larger beach where Londoners could spend their summer days, but now the original sand has disappeared and they’ve imported some in an attempt to recapture what once was.

There’s nothing like a cocktail to make you feel exotic. The fruity taste, the bright colours… just close your eyes and you could be in Rio! London has plenty of cocktail bars, so all you need to do is find one with an attractive garden to spend a long afternoon in. Somewhere like Kensington Roof Gardens looks like paradise – you’d never know that you were in the heart of a city if you didn’t look over the edge! They even have flamingos up there to complete your tropical experience.

If the busy people of London just don’t get you in the holiday mood, hire a Brazilian escort to spend the day with you and really turn up the heat. She will have all the fire and passion of Brazil, without the expensive price tag! Perhaps the two of you could visit the Lido in Tooting Bec; it is England’s largest fresh water outdoor pool. As long as the sun is shining, that’s all you need to make it feel like a real holiday.
