Who is Rick Steves ?

Re: Can I use global interrail pass?

by K_V_B

Rick Steves is probably a guy who doesn't understand the difference between an "interrail" pass and an "eurrail" pass...


The interrail pass is valid on all "ATOC" trains in Brittain, which is basically all of them, except a few open access operators.

Visit the Buckingham Palace

by pili

It Is the London home of the Queen. You can visit only a few days during the year, but you should go to see the Changing of the Guard. This activity takes place inside the railings of the forecourt to Buckingham palace. For a good view, get there early and place yourself near the railings or the Victoria Memorial.-
The Changing Guards takes place daily at 11.30 am. And lasts approximately 45 minutes.-

Es la casa de la reina. Sólo puede visitarse algunos dias en el año, pero igual, vale acercarse para ver el cambio de guardia, que se lleva a cabo en la puerta del palacio, atrás de las rejas. Para lograr una buena vista hay que llegar temprano y ubicarse cerca de las rejas, o bien en lo alto del monumento a Victoria que se encuentra justo enfrente del palacio. El cambio de guardia se lleva a cabo todos los días a las 11.30 hs. y dura aproximandamente 45 minutos

Suburbs

by irisbe

Outside the fancy busy city centre, reachable by bus, you will find the suburbs.

Here you will find a lot of brick stone houses, or, less colourful, ugly huge dark grey concrete buildings.
They are social housing buildings, providing the less fortunate Londoners a roof above their head.
Dirty and worn out as most of them look, one would become depressive just living in one of these.

I think they should let those architects live in them for a couple of years so they will have real life experience of what is needed to live in a good home.

As in many countries, but certainly in UK, even the modest-income population can’t afford a descent housing anymore. Most families saw their income reduce with a quarter during the first half of the 90ties. In 1996 about 47 % of them was living in unaffordable places, which represented an increase of more then 37 %!
When you must put 30 % as a maximum limit of your income going to pay rent, it showed that 25 % paid half their income on it!

Early 2002 over three thousand applicants were noted on the waiting list for subsidized housing in the city of London.



On the picture:
red brick stone houses. It is amazing how some trees and greenery can cheer up the neighbourhood. Some people, lucky to have a little garden, will grow vegetables and herbs in it. A bit of green can do a lot. Every one should have the right on a little piece of privacy, whether it is a small garden or a private balcony where some flowers and decoration can bring some Summer in one's life.

TRAFFIC

by shohman

In London they drive on the opposite side of the road than Americans. You would think this would be easy to adapt to, but I found crossing the road a challenge for my entire trip. after a few days, I just followed the crowds as the crossed the streets.

Tube Etiquette No. 9: Litter and Baggage

by Cham

Please don't litter in the underground not only does it leave everything looking disgusting but there's a more official reason as well.

You'll notice in no tube or train station there is waste disposal unit (rubbish bin). This is because of the IRA bomb threats during the 70's - 90's and this is also the reason why littering is a bad idea. The number of stations that get evacuated for bomb scares isn't as bad as it used to be but it does happen. this causes delays on any of the lines running through that station and generally takes a long time to clear the backlog of people, and most of the scares turn out to be a packet of sandwiches that someone has left behind.
