We’re back in London and on the final leg of our trip. Overall this has been an amazing and exciting journey. Matt and I returned the car in Epernay, France with just over 2800 kilometers added to the Renault. We covered a lot of territory, and I ended up with about 2500 photos, even after daily deletions. Most of the photos have not been edited – I will be working on that, and putting galleries on the blog after I return.
Yesterday we decided to just see whatever we happened to come across riding the Tube on a day pass. We also discovered we could use the pass on the River Thames water taxi. One of the stops is at a pier conveniently located behind the Canary Wharf Four Seasons Hotel where we’re staying.
After leaving the hotel we took a 10 minute walk to the Canary Wharf Station and started at 9:55 a.m. These are photos of things we discovered along the way.
From Canary Wharf Station we rode to the Bond Street Station to change lines to Holborn.
There were lots of school children on a field trip. I love the orange vests – a great way to keep track of busy kids.
This is the neighborhood around Holborn – a busy commercial and shopping area. We stopped at a model shop
Matt had read about online before leaving the U.S. and left with a model of a London cab and a few other things.
And then we decided to see what was at the Marble Arch station. Not surprisingly it was an arch, and lot of double decker red buses and a small park.
