A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.

Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?!

Hope you have a wonderful time!!!
I've never been to those countries so no advise except maybe buy or library a couple of touristy books. Frommer and Fodor are usually pretty good. Also Google is my bestest friend. Wish I could go too.
You can't always get what you want, babe
But if you try sometimes, you just might find
You get what you need.

You probably knew all of this, but I thought it might help. If you have time, journal your adventures with short picture hints because they might run together. Go and have the time of your life, because it will be worth every minute. Oh, what memories you will have.

Covent Gardens have a wonderful cafe,
Harrods is an intresting shop experinece, though a nigtmare when there is a sale on, Harrods used to sell Ginger biscuits [cookies] that was fantastic, and you got a paper carrier with the Harrods logo on.
Some street vendors are known to double and even triple prices to tourists, and I personally wouldn't buy food from them for fear of food posioning.
Buckingham palace, bet you cant get the soldier on duty with the big hat and red coat to smile, dont forget to get a photo or too stood next to one.
Expensive cameras, jewlery and other expensive equipment will make you a target for beggers and thieves.
My sisterinlaw and her 4 sisters went to see a show and shopping weekend in London, one had her phone stollen and another her wallet, it ruined there trip,
never put your possesions down in public, even in washrooms, forget fanny packs, the straps are easy too cut, back packs are also too easy for someone to rob, wear a bag that crosses over your body or under your arm and get into the habbit of holding on too your bag.
My daughter has 2 cat bells attached to her wallet, they are noisey enough to alert her if someone was trying to steal it, if you have a zipper on your purse attach a couple of bells you will be alerted if someone is trying to sneak into your bag.
Put some loose change in your pocket, you will use it and saves you pulling your wallet out all the time, you pay to use public bathrooms in the UK.
I have sent you a pm, my understanding is that Paris and London have similar problems, don't know about Barcelona, the main thing is to have a wonderful trip full of wonderful memories and lot of photos.
