My UK Summer Tour by deybholar(f): 9:24pm On Jul 18, 2019
Traveling to the UK for 2 weeks. Would be touring different cities in England. I’m used to staying in London whenever I visit. I’ll be touring different cities outside of London this time.

Traveling with British Airways to London Heathrow. My first time traveling with them after my friend praised their inflight entertainment and food. Past travels to London have been through Virgin Atlantic or Turkish Airlines.

The aircraft was a Boeing 747-400 double decker. Sadly, I couldn’t take pictures because my battery was low and I thought I’d be able to charge my phone on board.

I was disappointed sad
No charging port!
Small inflight entertainment screen
Poor screen resolution
Very few and old movies

Leg room was great though

Landed in Heathrow and cleared immigration.
Took the picadilly line train to London Kings Cross Station. From there I changed trains to my destination.

I'm already receiving inspiration to perhaps open a thread for my travels.

First Destination is Leeds.

Leeds is in the west Yorkshire part of England.
Not too big, not too busy, very serene and oh so
cold. The weather here is a lot colder than London. Even though it’s summer, people are still wearing light jackets and pullovers.

PICS: Leeds train station

Transportation in the UK is quite expensive (if you convert to Naira) cheesy but why wouldn’t I convert biko.

Train ticket from Heathrow to London King’s Cross costs £6 (it’s cheaper if you have an oyster card) and the ride from London King’s Cross Station to Leeds cost me £29 one way (it becomes more expensive if you don’t book early. I bought mine a month before traveling)

£6 is a bit expensive for a 1 way trip with Piccadilly. Since you are a frequent traveller, why not just get the Oyster card?

Very expensive if you ask me. I do have an Oyster card but I didn’t take it on this trip since I won’t be staying in London.

The beach here is beautiful and filled with lots tourists. Literally thousands.

Lots of theme parks on the beach too and there’s at least one hotel on every street in Bridlington because of the tourist attractions.

This place is predominantly white. Very quiet also. Kinda like a place you retire to in old age. Somewhere away from noise and bustle

My partner and I were the only blacks right from the train till when we got off at the station and throughout the walk to the beach and even on the beach.
