Flying solo

Today is the first day of Nicole's program so I was left to my own devices. I managed to get myself to Waterloo Station and pick up the pre-booked tickets for my trip to and from Axminster and our trip to Oxford all without any problem whatsoever! Amazing!

I navigated myself back to Embankment station and hopped on a train to Kew Gardens. Well what a treat! The autumn colours are just spectacular, what a time to see the gardens! I walked in the rain for about 3 hours, went through the fern house and the temperate house (largest surviving Victorian glass house), climbed the 108 steps up the Xstrata treetop walk (apparently someone overloaded the lift last week) but the view from there is just superb so well worth the climb.

Inside the glass houses there was also a bit of a climb as they both had walkways all around the buildings.


  1. Love the pics! Sounds great even with the rain. Good to hear your navigational skills are also in tune.

    Another favourite place to visit, always good for an afternoon of sanity in the midst of London. Bet it's more than a penny to enter now. Do they still have the old turnstiles to go through? Beuatiful pictures, such warm colours on a grey day. Sue

  3. Looks fabulous, despite the weather. Isn't it funny that as a tourist you simply get out and go anyway and it doesn't stop you - at home, just stay inside and not bother!


Thanks for calling in. I love reading your comments and I always try to respond either by email or through the blog. Enjoy!
