Thanks to their bronze medal win at the Pan American Games, the Chilean men’s handball team is gearing up to play in an Olympic qualifier tournament next month. Their odds of making it through to the Olympics could be likened to those of a snowball in hell – hey, I love my husband, but I’m also realistic – but can you imagine if they qualified? I’d be on the first plane to London 2012!
Last time we went to London, we were lucky enough to stay with friends. Their hospitality was MUCH appreciated, but I’d feel like a bit of an imposition camping out for a week or more. And London is one expensive town when it comes to hotels. So what’s a girl to do?
Join the latest craze in vacation accommodations, of course: rent an apartment. And we’re not talking your parents’ aparthotel with a sad little kitchenette and beige everything. These days, there are some gorgeous apartments for rent that will have you wishing you could stay longer.
I loved visiting the British Museum and exploring the Bloomsbury neighborhood in December, so St Pancras Chambers would be the perfect spot. I know promotional photos can make everything look better, but if this place is anything like the photos I’d like to move in yesterday, please. And I’m not talking a temporary move – I’ll just live here with all the perfect decorations if you don’t mind.
Sadly my dreams of luxe living in London may have to wait. Handball’s probably not going to the Olympics, and I’m probably not going back to England until at least next year since we have other demands on our time, like our trip to Cuba. But at least I know that next time I do go, even if it’s just for a couple days, I’ll be able to play house in style.
