How can I survive a pandemic travel ban? Memory Lane Time Travelling Agency is the only way to go. Time travel vicariously with me as I relive the glory days of a pre-COVID world. It’s early December 2012 and I’m travelling to London for a few days of sightseeing.

Exploring London the hard way again. I walked through Kensington Gardens with the intention of going to the Marble Arch to pick up the Hop-on-hop-off tourist bus. I was nearly at the far corner before I realised I was walking in the wrong direction. I don‘t know how it happens but whenever I am in the northern hemisphere my sense of direction is upside down, I go north instead of south and left instead of right, it was the same in China.

I cut down to the bottom of the park to the Royal Albert Hall and finally picked up the bus there. Queen Victoria really missed her Albert, the Albert Memorial is impressive. I only wish my photos could do it justice. Here is a link to an article about the monument on Londontopia.

Who am I? I am different things to different people. I am a poet, a visual artist, a sculptor of found objects, and a writer. I am a bookkeeper, an office manager, an administrator and software support consultant, even a short-order cook and barista. I am a parent, a grandparent, a sibling, a cousin and a friend. I am a traveller, a technophile, a philosopher and a student of all things.
