How many of us really know our home city? Unless you’ve answered, “Yeah, I do, really well” and I’ve stumbled into an awkward situation here, I’ll take the people who answered, “Actually, not that well” and bond in our neglect.
You may know some places to go, the general vibes of neighbourhoods, like I do, but what about directions? Getting inbetween those neighbourhoods, having that visual map in your mind? Problem is, when we live in a city for our whole lives, or just 6 months, sometimes we can forget to do even the tourist-y things.
So on a day out, the Powley family decided we would go on The Original Bus Tour around London. I should point out, my family actually do know London very well – these tickets were a freebie…
And what a shocker, London is beautiful. Tourist attractions as well as the random streets and people.
So, everyone, explore your own city and (re)discover the excitement of it. It’s got some tricks up its sleeve, too. :)
