Over the past 40 years or so, I've stayed in over 100 London hotels, from grotty bed-and-breakfasts near Paddington Station to the Savoy and Claridge's, and I've never seen a city with so much variety. New York City doesn't even come close.
Which of the world's museums is the most Googled? It's London's Science Museum. I recently spent an hour in the museum's permanent exhibit of information technology through the ages and I can see why.
From the superbly classic to the brand spanking new, here are a few good reasons to fly in this spring.

I'd never heard from the United and Delta media relations people before (hey, I've only been writing and/or tweeting about air travel for 25 years). But I sure got an earful.
