So last week I couldn’t hold off my curiosity about world famous address “221b Baker Street”. I passed “Baker Street” tube station quite a few times and finally decided to just look for it. :) By time I reached the street it was lightly raining and I found few other (curious) people like me standing outside 221b Baker Street. It has got a museum for Sherlock Holmes (though was closed by the time I reached).
Last week while travelling to London from Delhi IGI airport I was standing in immigration queue. One of fellow passenger (likely from Bihar as per my guess from his accent) came right behind me. He was bit afraid and asked me in low voice if those (immigration) gates would get him to his flight for Dubai. I smiled and told him that it’s common passage for everyone travelling to just anywhere and explained to him about his gate by looking at his boarding pass.
I had a nice two day trip to Paihia over weekend. Paihia is one of key tourist towns far up in North. It took around 4 hrs via bus from Auckland. Travel was quite comfortable and place was excellent. I would say Paihia itself was quite a nice place but travel to it was one of best scenic travel I ever had. [gallery link=“file” ids=“3895,3896,3898,3897,3901,3902”] I travelled via Inter-city bus. Outside India it’s quite common that just one person takes care of everything on behalf of bus company.
