Deeper underground

London’s public transport may be a nightmare to most. Londoners are frequently apologising for being late and so sadly it has become part of our daily grind!

Now during our trip to Berlin, I expected great things from their transport system. I often hear much praise for German efficiency after all. I was glad to see that everything ran to time, no delays, no mad crushes in the underground train systems. However, finding our way through the underground was a complicated business indeed.

I would liken it to playing a madly random living dot to dot. So for the 1st time in our lives we really appreciated how well planned and how easy it is to navigate through London Underground. It is comparatively very well signed and the colour coding of our various lines together with the “eastbound” or “westbound” is just brilliant!

Now it is a shame that we are riddled with strike action, line closures and badly lit trains, and great price hikes for invisible improvements. Otherwise, I would say that London Underground is super duper!
