Alas, I was not satisfied. I was determined to experience a fun side to London and to come home with a smile on my face. My recent day trip proved that you can enjoy London, even on a day trip and on a budget.
Day trips to London needn't be stressful; you don't need to cram everything into one day, especially if you are not a walker like I am, but if you don't mind walking and getting tired feet you can fit in a lot, but in a relaxed manner in 1 day.
As I published my first book 'When Everyone Shines But You' in July I was bringing in sales, but paying 30% tax
on sales in the USA, so my day trip had a dual purpose - to organise my tax in the form of a United States ITIN (Individual Tax Identification Number), which will allow me to recover this tax, and to enjoy the day.
We had an extremely early coach journey from Gloucester travelling by National Express, leaving our home at 3.45 am, arriving in London a little after 7.30 am. Bargain price at just over £20 for 2 of us and if I had remembered, I could have had a discount on top of that with my student card.
