Up to my Elbows in Tourist Books...

Hiya!
Long time no post, huh?

I know.  I know.  I'm a big bloggy slacker.   First it was that million dollar grant (which is submitted!  WHOO!) and now I'm mapping out and booking the details for our trip to the UK and Iceland in September.  We have our Scotland leg booked, and now we're planning London.

Speaking of which....

We purchased the Rick Steves book, Great Britain 2012 back in February.  By far one of the better travel books.  I dig Rick Steves.  I feel that while he makes his living by providing travel details, it really feels honest and genuine.  

But I had to chuckle a blurb in his book about the Norwegian YWCA just outside of Notting Hill in London.  Check this out:

First, KFUK is Norwegian for YWCA.  
(get your mind out of the gutter)

BUT!  Check out the last line of his blurb (click image to see it a bit bigger)....

I'm now convinced that Rick Steves throws this stuff in there just to make sure you're reading it.  And to be honest, friends....that line was worth the $22 I spent on this book.
