Squirrels, pretty parks and friendly faces in London

After a very long day of travelling, I’d hoped that we’d manage a sleep in. Unfortunately, that was not to be the case and we all woke up early. We were also on central European time which was an hour later than London, until the next day when summer time started and it would be…

Hilly wanderings and road mazes – Bad Gastein
