I travel an awful lot, and I can honestly say I’ve experienced most of the world’s travel systems, so I like to think I’m a bit of an expert. I’ve taken taxis in New York, where it’s practically an Olympic event, and flown on most major airlines, and I also have to drive a lot when we’re filming ‘At Your Service’, so transport is my speciality! I think that transport is the thing that’s changed most since the early days. Certainly air travel used to be a high-class affair, full of glamour and expense, and now it could hardly be more different. With everyone squashed into tiny spaces nowadays, behaving well has become more.
- As Great Britain is our nearest neighbour I thought I would commence my travel writings in London. I love cities and I love London for its buzz, history and style. You can visit on a blow out and or on a budget and still do wonderful things there. The one thing I love about London is that the attractions are not just for tourists… you always see loads of locals enjoying the experience as well. Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Marble Arch, Big Ben, the iconic red double-decker bus are all on the tourist map but I am going to tell you about my favourite gems.
