It was still all talk of heatwaves so I just grabbed a few t-shirts for a long weekend in the UK. Sooo glad I decided against shorts and even more happy I decided to take a thin jacket!
Quite an interesting trip to the UK a couple of weeks back, which began at silly o’clock in the morning for an 07:30 flght from Málaga. To start with, it was nice to have free WiFi on the plane, at Gatwick, on the GWR train and on the local bus when I arrived in Reading. The bus even had charging ports on each seat.
Hadn’t seen one of these old classics for a very long time until the other day in Woodley, England. The Ford Prefect was produced by Ford UK between 1938 and 1961. In 1953 the car was given this more ‘modern’ look, so this particular example has to be from the period between 1955 and 1961.
A few phone snaps from Gatwick airport. For the first time in quite a few years, passport control, in both directions, was quite quick and painless. Wonder what went wrong?
A quick impromptu one week trip to the UK and I experienced the full range of weather conditions, which was actually (or strangely) interesting. Cloudy and a short flurry of snow upon arrival, rain, two brief hailstorms, rain, clear blue skies and warm, a bit more snow and freezing cold. Well, it seemed like freezing cold but was around 4 or 5 degrees I believe.
The purpose-built walls in Woodford Park, Woodley, England, are specifically for graffiti, so the designs change quite frequently. These are the latest artworks on display.
I went on a short trip to the UK, Berkshire and Hampshire to be more precise, and it was great to experience so many different weather types in such a short space of time: rain, a few tiny snowflakes, two quick hailstorms, high winds. a couple of hours of clear blue skies and sun and a cold snap.
These examples are in Woodford Park, Woodley, in Berkshire, England.
