Investigating #London: Part One (aka A #research trip for the ages.) #paranormal #romance

I’ve been back from my wild jaunt to Europe for nearly a week and I’m still not over the let lag. Which means I’m a little fuzzy in the head. But I did manage to get my photos uploaded so I could share them with you.

Join me…

If you’ve ever been to London (or seen it on TV), you might recognize the iconic St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel building. Tucked right next to the St. Pancras/Kings Cross train stations, it’s an unforgettable sight. Very Victorian. Very impressive. Very perfect for a supernatural event or other. (Sunwalker Saga: Witchblood)

The Champagne Bar in the hotel is…stunning. The red uplights give it the feel of being lit by torchlight, and the hushed atmosphere makes you half-expect tuxedo-ed butlers to come gliding through at any moment. The perfect place for a bad date, perhaps? (Notting Hill Diaries)

The spa is in the basement in what was once the old kitchen. It definitely has an exotic Moroccan flair. I could see Kev hanging out here (Notting Hill Diaries), or even a brutal fight between a hunter and a vampire (Sunwalker Saga).

A mysterious doorway leading to…somewhere. A person could easily get lost here among the winding staircases and sweeping halls. Lots of places for evil to lurk. Plenty of gargoyles perched among the arches. And a stunning enough venue for a romantic fairy tale.DSCF1181

And that was just Day One (Okay, technically it was Day Two as I arrived Saturday and this was Sunday. But who’s counting?). Join me later this week for further Adventures in Europe.
