In October, 1997 took my fourth trip to the United Kingdom.  This time, I skipped all of the things that first and second time tourists due on a trip to London and the UK.  Once you see the British Parliament, Big Ben and the changing of the guard you do not need to see that again.

London and United Kingdom happens to be one my favorite places to visit.  Even although I have been to China, Hong Kong, and Europe, I keep going back to the United Kingdom.  I guess it's because my father's, father's family came from North London and Edinburgh, Scotland.

Belvior Castle - an English estate.

English Football (Soccer)
This was a leisurely trip with time to take in two English football (American soccer) matches.  The Fall-time is a great time to visit United Kingdom if you're interested in watching soccer the British way.  Thanks to my friends on the UK newsgroups, a great Web Page maintained by: CarlingNet for Premier League Soccer in the U.K. ( and a friend at the Football Trust on Melton Street near Euston Square I was able to get tickets to see the Tottenham Hot-Spurs play against Derby.  I was also able to see the last couple of minutes of a third division match thanks to a couple of bobbies who got us into the gate last-minute.  In addition to this, I enjoyed
watching the match between England and Italy in a local pub (England won).

When you go to London, is really nice to have the time to do things on a spur of the moment.  One example was the day that we were walking down the Street and saw a co-motion and decided to investigate.  As a result of this investigation, we were invited to a press conference to introduce a boxing match between World Champion, Vinnie "The Pazmanian Devil" Pazienza and the British contender Harold Graham.  This was a surprise for me as well as Vinnie, whom I have met one time before.

The tour that we took, took us to Nottingham and Sherwood Forest.  Here we saw one of the oldest pubs in England.  The "Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem" was established in normal 1189 A.D..  Here we enjoyed a couple of pints of brew and talking with two British students.  The balance of the trip we visited the birthplaces of D.H. Lawrence (Lady Chatterly's Lover),The Bronte Parsonage Museum in Hayworth (Jane Eyre), William Wordsworth's birthplace, Dove Cottage (Daffodils) and enjoyed a steam ship ride on Lake Windermere.
