I woke with a stinking cold yesterday but as I was in central London for a meeting I could hardly evade a quick tube running session.
The plan was to tick off the yellow Circle Line, starting at Aldgate.
It seems to me that every photo I’ve taken on the tube map challenge has included either the telecom tower or the Gherkin, I feel like I’m doing a massive maypole dance around the two landmarks. Only its June so I can’t be.
I headed down the Minories of Jack the Ripper fame to The Tower of London and then promptly sat down for a rest.
Running this route along the north bank of the Thames is actually quite feasible. The tourists flock to the South bank so you have a relatively unhindered passage and the views are great all the way out along the Embankment.
Unfortunately I had to keep stopping to retrieve tissues from my rucksac and I gave up earlier than anticipated and jumped on the tube home at St James’s Park.
