Swapping the Big Taco for the Big Smoke and the Big Apple....

















Summer Holidays!! That time has come around again - Hurrah!! Small Fish is swapping the Big Taco for both the Big Smoke and the Big Apple. As well as reacquainting herself with the delights of iconic London, she will also be off to Brighton, the Lake District, Stroud, Stratford, Oxford, and Wimbledon.....
















After drinking in the delights of London and the UK for five weeks, she will be stopping off in the Big Apple to savour the joys of New York on the way back to the Big Taco...














If anyone has some great recommendations for theatre, exhibitions, restaurants, concerts, arts events, or nightlife in London or New York this summer please let me know. I would love some suggestions of what is new and exciting or a must see.....












Hence, Small Fish will be taking a break from blogging over the Summer, and will not be back online until mid-August, although she will be checking and commenting on your blogs as frequently as she can. Have a wonderful summer everyone - especially those in the blogosphere!!

That sounds so exciting! I will be in NY in July to check out the acclaimed Broadway musical, Fela! Highly recommend it. Have a wonderful summer holiday.

Oh, I arrived dockside to wave my handkerchief only to see the small fish sailing off on her big taco for alternate summer realities. Sorry I missed you...will miss your postings and look forward to the suitcase full of souvenirs with which I am certain you will return.

Bon voyage!
