Day 1 is complete, and I’ve walked 15.73 kms. Not a bad start! If I can keep that up each day, I will be well ahead of target.
The cool thing about London is, there is so much to see. I had a beautiful walk through Kensington Gardens as dusk was falling. The daffodils were blooming.
Spring flowers were just peeping through the grass as people wandered, cycled and ran through the park.
I had never been this close to The Albert Memorial before. It is truly beautiful, especially as the light was catching on the gold and mosaics. And huge – the photo doesn’t do it justice at all.
I also walked past the Royal Albert Hall, quite majestic.
And of course, there were random beautiful things, just because.
All in all, a pretty good first day. I did stop half way and have a rather delicious Italian meal. I didn’t stop at this pub, but I kind of wish I did. So randomly cool.
Now for a hot shower and early night, ready for more walking adventures.
