  1. Hi, I’m a little intimidated to start the first topic in a club and I actually have no business being in a travel club at all as I very rarely travel. But for my birthday last year my mom promised me we could go to England as I’ve always wanted to go and have never left the country. (I’m in the US, outside Boston.) And this year it’s happening - last year my sibling had a nibling and it wasn’t feasible. We have rented an Airbnb in Little Venice in London for the last week of May then hope to rent a car and go to the Cotswolds for a weekend. I’m looking for any and all travel tips and favorite places, recommendations, etc. We plan on getting 7 day Tube passes via here before we go https://www.visitbritainshop.com/usa/travel-and-transport/london-transport/ I like: historic homes, seeing how real people lived and live, British accents, (they all/ you all sound like music to me, beautiful, unintelligible music) nature, babies, dogs, servants lives, details, trains, some musicals, and chocolate. I don’t like: very loud things, boats, spicy food, smoking, very scented places, and people in costumes who won’t step out of character when I politely explain that I’m scared of them. I’m autistic and have pretty intense fibromyalgia, sensory processing disorder and a lot of mental health stuff, which is why this trip will be a challenge. But it’s a lifelong dream and I’m determined to do it. Unfortunately I understand that I can’t access most disabled accommodations without a Blue Badge. I do plan on carrying a cane with a seat attached so I can give people a visible sign of being disabled, even though I don’t actually need the cane at all. I do need to sit down a lot, though - I can either walk or sit but standing is hard for whatever reason. (My fibro primarily affects my arms.) Also my mom, who’s a very young 72, will be there to help translate for me, help when I go nonverbal, start a meltdown, etc. Specific questions: - I’ve never been to London and am interested in one of the big red bus tours where you sit on the top and see things and hear a guide. Anyone have any favorites? Preferably leaving from near Paddington station? - any favorite historic houses/castles/servants quarters tours? - we will be there during school vacation week for Britain (oops.) Will the Victoria and Albert museum of childhood be completely overrun? Will it be weird to be an adult there? I’m genuinely interested in old children’s things. - do you need to bring your own bags to the market? We are planning on cooking at the Airbnb because of my issues with food tastes. Is there a huge advantage/price savings in shopping at a Tesco as opposed to the corner market? - any recommendations for the Cotswolds? I was SO disappointed to find out that we couldn’t take a train there and rent a car - the train is feasible but there’s no car rentals once you get there, and then we’ll have to get back to Heathrow from London on the morning of Monday, June 1. I love trains. Oh well. My mom will be driving, not me. - any general big etiquette no no’s that make you wince when clueless Americans do them? Will people understand autism or will they just think I’m yet another stupid, ignorant American? Would buttons saying stuff like ‘I swear I hate him and work against him all I can’ help? Thanks in advance! I know this is a lot! This will be the Trip of a Lifetime for me and I can’t waif!
  2. Major incident on London Bridge where a white van has mounted the pavement and hit pedestrians. Some outlets are describing this as a terror attack but that isn't confirmed. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jun/03/london-bridge-closed-after-serious-police-incident-reports Hope my fellow London based FJers are safe and sound.
