Tomorrow's tube strike will force a many a Londoner to seek out alternative travel arrangements. I'll be just one of those Londoners. As regular readers will know, Thursday is my busy day both here at The Daily Constitutional and out and about with London Walks.
During the last tube strike a few weeks ago I grabbed the opportunity to make my commute as interesting as possible. Leaving my North London home at around 9:30a.m, with the i-Pod set to shuffle, here are a few of the things I wouldn't otherwise have seen on my alternative 15 mile commute by foot…
|Thistles on Hampstead Heath|
|Nearing Little Venice|
|Prophesy in St John's Wood?|
|Three bears. Here's one…|
|…and two more in Kensington Gardens|
|The Round Pond|
|Selfie in the window of my favourite gents outfitter, Hornets of Kensington|
|Heading East after leading the Kensington Walk|
|A supper the weight of my head at Chipotle justified by calories burned on walk (see below)|
|Rush Hour Londoners take to the water|
|On a bus at last, heading north on the Holloway Road and home|
|The "Big L"|
Good luck everyone!
