Break the Bank, Or Don't, Shopping in London
The strength of the British Pound means that shopping in England can really take a bite out of your wallet. If you're like me and prefer to splurge on food and drink, you may choose to skip out on the shopping of Oxford and Bond streets. But these pricey avenues are worth a lap or two if only to gawk at the elaborate window displays. Especially during the Holiday season, shops go all out to draw in anyone with a disposable income. If you're persistant enough you may even be able to track down a good sale or two. And when the crowds inevitably overwhelm, work off the stench of capitalism with a meandering walk through Hyde Park.
