Steve Crosses the Pond

Steve flew to London last week for his first international business trip, and first time to Europe! Since his client only had time to meet on Thursday and Sunday, he went over Wednesday morning and returned Monday afternoon. Due to all of his down time, he was able to tour around some and see the sights.

The double decker bus tour was recommended since they drive you to all of the hot spots and allow you to get off and catch another bus. So he witnessed the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, saw the Tower of London, Big Ben, and went into St. Paul's Cathedral.

Steve even made contact with the University of Alabama Alumni association in London, and found out there was a group of people watching the AL-Penn State game. The festivities were being hosted by a guy from the US, but working

in London now. Steve had a ball rooting for the Tide from across the pond, and having a few pints with other fans. When we spoke later that night, he even spoke with a slight British accent (joking).

Though it was a short trip, it was a jammed pack one, that also proved to be worthwhile for business.

Wow, is that guy a diehard fan or what!? ha! Can't believe he found some fans to hang with half way around the world!

Fun spot for a business trip. Glad he got to get out and see the sights.
