Great Britain 

I’m spending some time in Great Britain. 

To get there you need a plane, and here’s a plane I found at Melbourne Airport.

Part way to Great Britain I stopped off to find another plane, one that was going all the way to where I wanted. I just had to find the right gate . . . let me see. . .

Its a big airport at Hong Kong but eventually, after walking what seemed to be several kilometres, I found the plane I wanted.

Then I was there at Heathrow Airport. It’s also big.  An early morning trip on the underground, on the Piccadilly line that ends at “Cockfosters” I arrive at my Earl’s Court accommodation.

Needless to say I can’t sleep so I walk to Hydes Park.

And see my first Squirrel.


And several birds including a Robin. Quite a vocal little fella and for a Robin but they aren’t like our Australian Robins, or so I’m told.

A quick trip to see Liz but she wasn’t there. However there was a bit going on:


I was told off for standing on a wall to take this photo, but it was worth it.


Then back to the hostel at Earl’s Court and some shots during a stroll.



And to finish off a long day. . . . what we Australians think of as horses “joining” must not be the same for the English.

  1. In Australia we say don’t scare the horses. In the old art it seems they need signs to ensure the horses don’t scare the people. I’m looking forward to many more posts.
