Panoramas of the London Skyline – Photos from the Skylounge at Doubletree Hilton

Posted on March 4th, by Peter Parkorr in Britain, London, Picture Perfect. 4 comments

Today I’m sharing photographs of London from the Skylounge at DoubleTree Hilton, near London’s Tower Bridge.

Keeping it short and sweet today – New Year, new style. More often, less is more, more or less.

Look at this little exchange of information and niceties between myself, Serena Puosi (currently in Italy I think? To be confirmed…) and Jodi SchmEttenberg*, who is mid-flight somewhere between Canada and Vietnam!…

Tis the season to be merry, and I decided to wish you Happy Christmas in travel photos from places I visited in the last 12 months!
