Just enough time for tea and scones
Being Europe’s hub for air travel, London seems to attract stop-overs, whether they like it or not. I don’t mind a stopover (here and there) but to try and spend ten days at 2.6 times your currency (the ‘Pacific Pesso’) is just crazy. So I made a plan to head to Ireland, only spending shoulder days either side in England.
It turned out well in the end, catching up with friends who I hadn’t seen for ages, and generally painting the town red (which is what people do in London, right?!).
You can find your way around the city easily and It all felt somewhat familiar – To easy, I say. Same language, same culture. Where’s the challenge.
