My 24 day Contiki bus tour took off from London, the city where people drive on the wrong side of the road, call sweaters “jumpers,” and refer to anything fancy as “posh.” Because London only served as a meeting point, I was stuck on the wrong side of the road for a mere day. But because my tour of 53 people consists of 50 people from Australia or New Zealand plus a British tour guide, the funny vocabulary continues to follow me. And because I am one of the two Americans, I’ve picked up on some foreign phrases in an attempt to blend in. I find myself calling college “uni,” shopping for “jumpers,” “getting on well” with my fellow travelers, and being “quite keen” for the upcoming adventures.
We only had a matter of hours to explore London as part of the tour, so I’m going to finally publish my photos from my previous trip to London over a month ago.
