I am going to London tomorrow morning… A few years ago, I would instantly be thinking of Westminster Abbey, the Thames, musicals and… pubs! But today I am the shaving detective. Even though I am traveling with my wife this weekend, it certainly will influence our plans for the trip.
Names like Taylor of Old Bond Street, G.F. Trumper, Truefitt & Hill and other great brands were totally unknown to me when I last visited London. Some of the oldest and most classic barbershops in the World are located in central London – all within perfect walking distance of each other. And London is full of places to visit for me as a shave blogger. Murdock London and others might be on my list as well.
Even though my wife has already planned our trip with an uneven amount of shopping time, I am sure “barbershop strolling” is not part of her initial plans. Anyway, I expect to visit at least a few of the old barbershops and bring some nice products with me back to Denmark on Sunday.
King of Shaves Azor 5 and Shick / Wilkinson Hydro 5
Speaking of nice products. For the first time ever, I will leave home without any shaving gear at all. As I arrive in London, I will get hold of a few products I still need to review on Shaving Detective.
Next week, you can expect my unbiased view on the King of Shaves Azor 5 razor along with the Wilkinson Hydro 5 (known as Shick Hydro 5 to my US readers). None of these razors are available in Denmark, and I am looking forward to get my hands on them.
I will probably not check my email while I am away. If for some reason you need to contact me while I'm in town, I'll be staying at the Americana Hotel at Gloucester Place. You can always send me a text message at (+45)26828308.
I'll be back on Sunday – with my mind full of inspiration and my bags full of great products. Or at least as many as I can fit into the bag, once my wife has finished shopping at Westfield.
Did I forget someone? Mail me today (Wednesday) before 9 PM GMT at firstname.lastname@example.org – and I'll respond before leaving. 🙂
