Travel Writer Spots Congressman, Vogue Editor, Condi and Actress in London

Poshbrood travel site creator and HuffPost writer Elizabeth Thorp has been in London for a few weeks to attend Wimbledon and take in the sites. Her sightings are worth a look.

Yesterday she came across the least exciting of her spottings, which was none other than Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.). He was staying at her hotel, the Goring, where Kate Middleton got dressed pre-royal wedding adjacent to Buckingham Palace. Schock had no entourage and traveled solo to see the unveiling of the Reagan statue at the U.S. Embassy. “I just saw him again this morning checking out of my hotel,” Thorp told FishbowlDC. “Crazy. May be on my plane?”

Thorp’s other weekend sightings were more glitzy than the abs-obsessed politician. They included Vogue Editor Anna Wintour and former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice at Wimbledon. She also eyed actress Freida Pinto, who played Latika in “Slumdog Millionaire,” in Terminal 3 at Heathrow Airport.
