Travel Theme; Transportation (London)

I took this photo a few weeks ago on a trip to London to renew my passport

Although I have lived in London for nearly 25 years and all of my adult life, i still see London through the eyes of a tourist sometimes

My children might wonder what I see in this picture, but to me it is iconic London Underground

Classic London Underground

      Me too, I loved it when I first got here & you would think by now I’d be a bit desensitised having commuted for so many years, but I still get a thrill when I get to go on it! I love how they refurbish it. I remember how grotty some stations used to be, and It is great to see them restored to their former glory

    I share your sentiments about the Underground. It has its delays and strikes and discomforts, but we could all step back for a moment and appreciate what a great piece of living history we have here!

      True

      I love the really old lines. The Bakerloo Line was the first, running from Baker Street to Waterloo, hence the name 🙂 The modern refurbishments embrace the history of the stations, and the original tiles designs which are lovely
