I realised our flight to Hong Kong wasn’t going to be smooth sailing when I checked my e-ticket and realised my travel agent had forgotten to reserve seats for our return journey. With less than 10 hours till the flight, I furiously tried to check in online with zero luck. After endless combinations of e-ticket no/Virgin ref number/name, the answer was a constant ‘computer says no’.
My friend Justine and I share a love of all things ordnance survey, geography and travel. On a recent sunny day in London (yes I know, it happens), I took the girls to meet her in the lovely Coram’s Fields. She announced she had a gift for me and it turned out to be the best travel game ever.
Did you know that the London Underground is the oldest underground passenger railway in the world? Unfortunately the Victorians weren’t prancing around with enormous Bugaboos and schlepping small children across London. Which means that it wasn’t built with the family traveller in mind. However, London is an expensive city so if you want to make the most of it, you will need to get on the Tube.
