Queen at Wembley – a Childhood Dream come true

Queen + Adam Lambert at Wembley Arena

With my parents and aunt being huge Queen fans, I grew up with their music. And with the dream of one day seeing them live.

Back in the days – when dinosaurs still roamed this earth – they went to see Queen live not once but twice… and refused to take me with them. How dare they say I was too young to come to a rock concert at the sweet age of eight (ok in hindsight maybe they had a point, but I refused to believe that). Then the unthinkable happened and Freddie died.

Fast forward 30 years. Queen + Adam Lambert live in Wembley.

Too good a chance to miss.

Down the Tube – Secrets of the London Underground

The London Underground is one of the oldest in the world. The oldest parts recently celebrated their 150th birthday. And whilst it might not be able to compete with the modern, high-tech networks in some other cities, it surely has its very own charm and identity.

No it does not run 24/7… apart from New Years Even. Although some lines have started a night tube service on weekends.

Yes it lacks air-conditioning on most of the lines (and only works half of the time on those chosen few)

No it does not come cheap, compared to some others.

But it is still one of the quickest ways to get from A to B when in London. And we do love it, even if we complain about it (we are Brits, that’s what we do).

If you are a tourist in this city, chances are you will use it a lot and completely rely on it.

So let me introduce some tube trivia and secrets of the underground to keep you entertained and busy during those rides.
