I'm Colombian but I decided to do this research in the english forum considering that perhaps I could get some more accurate information about this topic here.
Since I've been studying in Germany for a little more than one year, I have had the posibility of visiting this country as well as many others on my fee time, thus discovering a new passion. England is one of the countries I wanted to visit the most since I was a teenager, however this isn't as easy for me as it probably is for others because of the visa procedure.
This year I wanted to start my visa process to visit England and specially London (another dreams of my childhood), however I was recently notified that the big ben tower is completely covered with scaffolding due to restauration works.
I remembered that when I visited the Trevi fountain in Rome in June 2015 and this June 2018 in Prague after visiting the astronomical Clock, oh my god, WHAT A disappointment. Fortunately, I had another opportunity to enjoy both of them.
I wouldn't like the same to happen in London, specially with its most iconic sightseeing. With that said I considered to putt off my trip to England, but I know this restauration works might take 2 or even 3 more years.
Do you thing that it would be actually worth to put off this trip until 2020?, perhaps at that time it would be at least more visible than it is right now.
Weren't for the annoying visa process, I could visit now and do it on another opportunity again as it happened with both of the sightseeings mentioned above.
What do you think about it. But the way, London is not the only city in the uk I was considering to visit.Edited: 15 October 2018, 05:36
