I looked up at the sign again. I was on the right platform – at least I hoped I was. Boarding the wrong bus or train is part and parcel of travelling but I haven’t yet been faced with a train that could take me to the wrong country.
There is something oddly exciting about taking the first train to the airport as the sun is still hiding behind the horizon and the city is not yet awoken from its slumber. Or maybe it’s just to do with flights being cheaper first thing in the morning.
I decided to enjoy the fantastic weather that descended on London this weekend and my buddy and I headed to Borough Market (see my post on my first visit here) and got some chicken gyoza and freshly-made bread. As we looked for somewhere to sit and enjoy the sunshine and the food, we heard the sounds of music coming from around the corner.
So, I vowed to do a few more European city breaks this year and I have finally booked a couple of trips for the next month. One of the great advantages of living in the UK is the ease with which it’s possible to get around Europe.
This fast flowing river located in a major European city has attracted surfers for decades and attracts dozens of tourists vying for the best view from the bridge above. Can you guess where?
Sometimes, when it comes to travel, it’s easy to gloss over local sights in favour of faraway lands. Despite living in London for 17 years, there are many sights and attractions that I haven’t visited. Borough Market is one of them.
It’s not very often that you get an opportunity to spend a day in a different country. Doing so in Europe is easier, granted, but outside of Christmas shopping trips to Bruges or Amsterdam, it’s not something I, as a Brit, get to do much.
