To be exact … my very first trip overseas !!!! .. in 2008! Yay!! Finally!! My very first trip out of Africa!! At the ripe-old-age of 55!
I come from an English background. I was born and grew up in Rhodesia. I learnt English/European history at school. I couldn’t wait to set foot in England and see all the historic places I had read about, seen in photos, movies, etc. This particular trip included time in London and time in the country, using Bath as our base. London and the English countryside was top on my agenda for my first trip overseas
Whoo hoo .. London – a dream come true!!
My first thrill .. on the ground!! … a ride in a London taxi from Paddington Station to our hotel 🙂 🙂 🙂
10 Downing Street was very big in the news when I was growing up, especially in the 1960’s when Rhodesia declared UDI (1965). We had to see it …
What a way to bring back happy memories of a wonderful holiday!!!! Hubby and I travelled to London again the following year en route to Ireland and went to places we hadn’t seen this time.
