This week is spring break and we stayed close to home. And my escalating urge to travel again – to be immersed in culture and all things foreign – was close to overboil. With our youngest at the age where travel seems possible again, we hold on by the anticipation of a trip abroad planned for next year. So today a bit of adventuring close to home will have to do.
We board a double-decker bus straight from London, right in our own downtown. My husband and I recall the last one we took, in its native city, when visiting friends. We remember we were cold sitting top level open-air, and we ducked out at a stop for some memorable fish & chips.
Here it comes!
The university in our town owns these imported London double-decker buses that serve the college students and city residents during the school year. The sight of these red buses weaving in and out of streets fits our quirky city perfectly.
Mind the gap, kids.
At the end, it seemed appropriate to top off the ride with a scone and coffee , while we hold on to our passports for another time. We can use the caffeine. Our next trip will be here before we know it.
