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 stop over (here and there) but to try and spend ten days at 2.6 times your currency (when you have around 5 days total cash at your local rate) is just crazy. So I made a plan to head to Ireland, only spending the shoulder days either side in London..
It turned out well in the end, catching up with friends whom I hadn’t seen for ages, and generally painting the town green (ok, and red).. London was becoming a familiar city. I was finding my way around with ease and I felt like I knew what to do there, but I was never going to survive long there living on the good old ‘Pacific Pesso’ (or the Ozzy Dollar for short). Perhaps one day I’ll head back for work opportunities..
