SALUTE 2012 - Spanish Armada heading to London
Some of you may think this is premature, but I wanted to share with you our project to attend the Salute 2012. The idea came up in the group within my local club that gathers regularly to play TooFatLardies games and the response has been enthusiastic so far, with nine members already signed-up. In fact the initial plan has become more ambitious, and the latest version is to fly Friday early in the morning, hire a car and straight to Bovington Tank Museum; Saturday morning will be invested in Salute and in the afternoon we will visitthe National Army Museum; on Sunday it will be the time to visit the Imperial War Museum and then back to Madrid.
Being so earlñy birds, we have already found very cheap plane tickets (€100 return to Gatwick with Easyjet) and now we are searching for a decently priced lodging (something not so easy in London, I'm afraid). So I hope to meet personally the original TooFatLardies gang and hopefully some of the bloggers that I usually follow (Ashley from Paint it Pink, Sidney Roundwood, Big Lee, the Angry Lurker, among many others...).
Anyone with a good advice on lodging, pubs and restaurants, we will really appreciate if you leave a comment in this blog.
