May 2011 London Bloggers Meetup @ The Long Acre

Last night found me down in the rather funky basement bar of the Long Acre just up the street from Leicester Square in London, for the May meeting of the London Bloggers Meetup Group.

As always, the event was organised by Andy Bargery, and there were lots of interesting new people there to meet and greet. One of the most interesting people I bumped into tonight was Shimelle, who runs ‘online scrapbooking classes’ – no, I’m not sure what means either, so perhaps you should head over to her site to see what it’s all about?

The main guest speaker tonight was Paul, who runs – a neat site that’s packed full of really useful travel tips that cover destinations from here to Timbuktu – he’s a very well-travelled individual! There was also a panel a little later on which brought in a representative from (the straightforward holiday booking site which guaranteees the lowest rates for hotels) and also from my absolutely essential travel site, I never ever book a hotel without looking on tripadvisor first – it’s saved me from several potential disasters in the past!

Another great night was had by all – if you blog about any aspect of London, whether it’s the theatre, food or great places to relax on a Sunday afternoon, I can really recommend coming along to our next event.
