Platform 9 ¾, London. It was not actually between platforms 9 and 10. Fortunately, that means I didn’t need a ticket - or wizard powers - to get to it.
The Westminster area.
This was shortly after the Westminster terror attack, so there were still clear signs of mourning.
Getting there by bus was interesting. There was a tunnel between England and France - you don’t drive through the tunnel; you drive onto a train designed to carry cars/buses.
I spent a lot of time at Hyde Park. Reminded me of NYC’s Central Park in some ways.
I also ended up near a building named for the founder of Boy Scouting. Unexpected, and a nifty find for someone in scouting.
Amsterdam, the Netherlands!
Before coming here, I didn’t realize it was right up there with Copenhagen for bike-friendliness. So many bikes.
I spent a decent amount of my time here sick, unfortunately, so not many photos for you. It’s a fun city, though.
A walk to an old Copenhagen castle on a star-shaped island, and the famous mermaid statue, The Little Mermaid/Den Lille Havfrue. I don’t quite get why it’s so famous - there are so many other statues throughout Copenhagen. Don’t get me wrong, this one’s nice, but so are the others!
