Every country in Europe has its own stories about how imperfect weather can be.
When we started preparing for UK trip, I read the same, never trust the weather. Being used to hearing that about everyday I knew what it meant. (Or atleast I thought so!)
At London, we took the Thames cruise to enjoy the beauty of London from river of Thames.
It was really nice weather, almost perfect. Sun was shining in clear blue sky. After a while it started penetrating our skins as we were sitting on deck. Some more minutes and it started getting a bit too much and Ashu asked me if I wanted to move inside cruise as it was getting really warm. I replied I was liking it… sun, river and cruise.
While thinking the same those words that I read so many times rushed to my mind “Never trust the weather here”. I wondered if it was possible to experience that chill now while the sun shines. I smiled and settled my wondering mind over admiring tower of London and the bridge,
A moment passed and a cold breeze touched my cheeks. I actually liked it after this warm penetrating sun rays.
A few more moments and it was windy, getting chiller moment y moment forcing everyone to put on their jackets.
A few moments and came a drop on my forehead.
A few more moments and we were rushing downstairs towards downstairs on cruise. While hearing those last words of trip from tour guide, we were sitting in comfortable chairs enjoying view of London eye from behind the glass windows with heavy shower blocking the view!
So here I am, repeating the stereotype you might have heard hundred times:
“While in London, you never know what to expect, so always e ready to expect the unexpected.” :o)

So just from experience I keep two tickets in hand and in the case one doesn't work. This problem I only face when I have bought 10 tickets ballet never with individual tickets but then if you have a valid ticket and no access, you can always go and ask at ticket counter and they will check your ticket and let you enter or will just renew the time-stamp on your ticket if that's the issue. But is convenient in a way time-saver (of course not when it doesn’t work) and most of the time there is always a queue at ticket windows or machines.
Easy thing is to buy from some small metro station as it won’t be that crowded, smart huh? ;)
Ok enough metro. I am back to home over the weekend and time for some luxuries.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
