Urban Adventures…London The City Streets

I highly recommend this London Urban Adventures City Streets Tour

The fun began before the tour as you can read in Trafalgar Square People Watching, but this half-day (4 hours plus) tour included so much, that it was well worth the investment of time!

The guide, Nina from Germany, took personal pride knowing little known . . . → Read More: Urban Adventures…London The City Streets

People Watching… Trafalgar Square

I had the great pleasure of going on this fantastic Tour of London City Streets by Urban Adventures

We met at Trafalgar Square and it was hopping with people. People watching extraordinaire! It was a beautiful sunny 70 degrees and everybody was hanging out all over the steps. I was early for the tour start . . . → Read More: People Watching… Trafalgar Square

This Lady is Following Me!

When I went to get Michelle Turkish Lira for her school trip to Istanbul, an old lady sitting on a bench in the Post Office started yelling at me that I had “skipped the queue”.

It is a good thing! There were tons of dogs…

Language Lessons…

Do not say the word “Fanny” here. It is bad…very bad. The equivalent of the “C” word! The checkout is the “till” and the speed bumps are “humps”. “Pants” are underwear and “trousers” are pants. Your calendar is your “diary”. Hamburger is “beef mince” and bacon is “rashers” (or sometimes “streaky bacon”). Everyone knows that . . . → Read More: Language Lessons…

English Translation Lessons

I saw a tiny little boy in a kelly green suit that was trimmed in bright blue. If that was not adorable enough the pants (trousers) were shorts and it had a matching hat like a little captain’s hat, and a matching bright green and blue bow tie! There were about ten other little guys . . . → Read More: English Translation Lessons
