Greetings from London and where ever else I choose to base myself from time to time.

If you like exploring and travelling to places within a day’s reach from a well-connected city, then you’ve come to the right place. And if you like discovering bits of history and stories about people, places and everyday things, then you’re in good company. As that’s exactly what this blog is about, together with photos taken using my little Iphone.

I only use public transport. It’s so much more relaxing. It’s good for the environment. And the possibilities of places to visit by jumping on a bus or train still seems endless.  All made that much easier by Google map and travel apps.

I’m an independent traveller, relying on Google map to navigate my way around. All Google map references are highlighted in BOLD on my blogs. So there are no excuses for not being able to retrace my walks. All you have to do is to save their locations on Google map, and voila, you have a route.

And of course I yearn for a cheap day out. Don’t we all?  But sometimes it’s worth paying a little extra for a truly wonderful experience. I do provide a rough indicator of how much it costs to travel and visit attractions. A cheap day out (£) would cost no more than £20  and an expensive day out (£££) is anything over £40.  And there are plenty of tips and pointers too.

I hope that through my photos and stories, I inspire you to visit these places too.

Thank you for reading my blog.

And happy travels.
