The first week in London has been really great. From day one, we hit the pavement and jumped on the tube to explore the city.
I’ve taken a lot of photos during the first week in London. Wandering around the city with a camera around your neck is the easiest way to look like a lost tourist, by the way. More than one person has stopped to help with directions.
This post includes a range of photos from various areas in London.
As everyone knows, London’s public transport system is pretty amazing. You can essentially get to anywhere you want by jumping on a train or bus.
So far, I’ve managed to avoid the ‘rush hour’ every time apart from once, which meant waiting for three trains until there was any room to squeeze on.
This week has also involved a lot of walking. Thankfully, there hasn’t been any rain yet – just the grey clouds which are quickly evaporating the memory of the coming summer in New Zealand. A cloud-less sky is a treat only received once in the last week.
I’ve done my best to avoid taking too many photos of squirrels in London. They are literally everywhere, and in Hyde park they are especially friendly.
There is also a local fox who visits every evening to say hello and ask for some dinner.
Sarah put together a short video of our first week. Watch it below.
Every building in London has a lot of history and is very photogenic. The Harrods store (above) is amazing at night time and the old train stations are always asking for a photo.
I’m still not sure if I like The Shard (below) or not, but it’s right next door to our office so I’m sure I’ll get used to it. Working right in the heart of London is a great way to see different parts of the city at lunch time and going to/from work.
This week we’re in Copenhagen Denmark for a conference and a few extra days to look around. I’m looking forward to exploring the city, but it’s looking a little cold!
Until next time,
