My family and I love to travel and experience new things! One of our favorite spots is London, and we cannot wait until we’re able to return. In the meantime, here are a few thoughts on something I love about London:
I was thinking recently. Don’t look so surprised! I do think, sometimes. One of the many reasons I love London are the ubiquitous signs they are wont to post in public places. Necessary or not, I find them rather comforting.
For example while standing on the platform in The Tube (aka: The London Underground) preparing to board the next train, a sign on the pavement cautions you to “MIND THE GAP” between the platform and train.
After completing your transit on the Underground and exiting the train (once again minding the gap) you are greeted by an ever so comforting sign: “Way out ➜”. How often in your life have you needed a clear “way out”?
One final example from London are the hand painted signs at the curbs telling you which way to look for traffic. If you aren’t accustomed to cars driving on the “wrong side” of the road, this can be a life saver, literally.
Do you like to travel? Is there anything quirky or funny or comfortingly unique you’ve encountered in your travels? What are your favorite destinations? Thanks for dropping by my humble little home on the web. 🙂
