    Der perfekte London-Spaziergang

    January 10 in the United Kingdom

    Eine wirklich schöne Strecke, auf der auch immer etwas los ist, befindet sich zwischen Tate Modern und der Lambeth Bridge. Kaum eine Stadt hat bessere Straßenmusikanten als London und auch sonst sind die Menschen wirklich kreativ. Auf meinem Spaziergang begegne ich einem Seifenblasen-Mann der jedes Kind glücklich macht, einem Sandkünstler, der gerade ein Gesicht im Sand modelliert und komme am London Eye vorbei. Außerdem gibt es eine tolle Sicht auf den Big Ben und das Parlament.

    London Wandering

    March 31, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    I was up early on my first day in London (time keeps shifting around!) so I decided to walk to my first booked activity. I had read about the free Sky Garden and had luckily seen it early enough to book a time slot for late morning. Mr Google told me the walk was about 80 minutes and it went close to Buckingham Palace and then around a waterfront walk by the Thames.

    It was a lovely fresh spring day and just perfect for exploring. The palace was very impressive and wasn't crowded that early in the day. I then made my way through the picturesque St James Park where the spring flowers were starting to bloom all around.

    Nearby Trafalgar square was chaotic and busy as I think everyone was trying to get to work! I loved seeing all the names of the streets so familiar after playing Monopoly. My walk then veered off to a path along the lovely embankment park by the river. I passed by the Savoy, which had only been my second choice of Hotel!. I passed the "border" to the city of London guarded by some Lion Statues and finally reached the impressive building housing the Sky Garden. I'll post a separate footprint for my time there.

    I next headed for the other side of the Thames, braving the underground to save time and my feet, before walking over a foot and rail bridge to where the London Eye sat dominating the skyline. I had fast track tickets to avoid the large queue of tourist waiting in the very warm sun (getting a better summer in London). There will be a separate footprint for this stop too.

    After a nice lunch in the park, bought from the huge range of prepared food in a local Tesco's, I headed to Covent Gardens and wandered around exploring the area. By now it was about 6:00pm and I had exceeded 20,000 steps, so I found a bus to my Hotel and called it a day with a takeaway burger and a glass of wine for dinner.

    Four Days in London

    October 30, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    In the cab on the way to Gatwick airport to leave for Spain.
    During the last four days we have been to Camden Markets, walked across London Bridge, Tower Bridge, saw the London Eye up close. Didn’t buy a ticket as the line to board was way too long. Strolled through and did a little shopping at Covert Garden. Went to a theatre to see Kinky Boots. The show was fantastic. I think I was the only one in our group that didn’t have a power nap during the show.Read more

    Day 71 - Maidstone to Home, 49 miles

    June 25, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    So that's a wrap. 10 weeks, 9 countries, 2726 miles riden, 3 Tour de France climbs conquered, 1 Monaco GP yacht party, 1 puncture, 1 broken pannier and many new friends and memories made that will last a lifetime.

    So that's it. Incredible trip that will take a while for it all to really sink in. So many highlights and don't get me wrong there were tough days but they were few and far between.

    Fitting that today's ride was in sun, rain and wind and felt strange rolling back into Putney knowing that there'll be no riding tomorrow. Secretly though I can't wait to have a lazy Sunday in the pub and think a full English to start followed by a good old Sunday roast will be in order.

    This tour may have ended but this is only the beginning of my touring career!!
