This was my first adventure into the real world, so naturally I was a bit curious about what I would find beyond
the limited view from the window of the shop. From my vantage point, all I could manage to see were cars zooming
by, people hurrying along their way, and the usual patrons of the small convenient shop across the street. I have to admit
I was a bit nervous at first to leave the stability of my dusty shelf but once I got the hang of being carried
around and sat upon unusual and sometimes uncomfortable or unsteady places for those Kodak moments, I
had indeed caught the traveling bug in a big way!
I've never been to so many places and used so many modes of transport in such a short time in my life!
My head's still spinning! Cars, Taxis, Buses, "The Tube", Boats, Escelators, Elevators, Shopping Carts, Luggage
Trolleys and Planes! It sure beats that boat trip across the ocean from my birthplace, which I don't
remember much about anyway....it's impossible to see out of a shipping crate. And I pretty much slept through the
Indiana episode....glad I wasn't there long, whew! I was peeling paint off the walls in that warehouse, I was
Castle Combe in Wiltshire County
To me this picture represents the essence of my experience while visiting various places in the UK. It's old, it's pretty,
it's funky and there's a pub there!
