I am just reading your comments from my previous post, what I love about the WordPress community is that it is full of diversity and people with differing interests. My question was where would you like to visit post apocalypse? Reading the comments the responses varied a lot. Cities and beach resorts, hometowns, ancient wonders of the world, and even just a supermarket without the people (I hear you Pat).

Thank you for all your comments, I will be responding to them very soon.

Today I needed to pop to a specific shop. The flat I have moved into for now close to work is pretty old, it still has one of those electric meters you need to top up with a stick at a convenience store. With it being Sunday most were closed. I found online that one was open, I popped my mask on and headed to it. I strapped my GoPro to my bag as I walked to get some footage of the lockdown to show the grandkids, however looking back at it I did a bad job of walking at a reasonable pace.

Now I know that I am a fast walker, and even though I tried to slow it down it was still too fast. The camera was bouncing and I felt dizzy watching it. I also filmed in 4K and the 16 minute recording was over 3GB which is a hell of a lot so in terms of uploading I have to consider the size too. But I know for next time and if I do record my future walks when I have to leave the house, I may upload them to my blog. I don’t go out often with this pandemic, only when needed. And it feels like an adventure when I do.

I have been watching lots of these videos by a YouTuber named Watched Walker. He does a great job of filming his walks around London, at a decent pace too. I will leave you tonight with one of his videos as I feel they are not just fascinating, but something future generations can look back on with fascination as we do with black and white footage.

It is also a great way to see London for those that aren’t from here (the majority of you!) and before Corona took hold. It is so strange to see groups of people again…

I hope you enjoy, and I will speak to you all soon!

 


 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak I am somewhat limited as to what I can do in London, but I aim to post as much as I can during this time. I promise to have some great posts coming your way once this is all over as I continue to explore London.

Stay home, stay safe and happy blogging!

Sam

    1. I am sure you will be able to be out scootering again in no time! We just have to ride this out. Pun intended 😀

      And thank you haha, it’s keeping me very warm right now.

  1. Thanks for sharing the video tour. Indeed it was interesting reading people’s picks in the comments section. Oh! ? What’s tipping of with the stick? Is that like filling up your petro (lol) in your car.

    1. Haha sorry I should have clarified. The ‘stick’ as I mention is a little like a USB, I need to take it to a store to ‘top up’ (put money on it) and stick it back into the meter when I am home 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing that video, it’s nice to learn a little history in the subtitles, it also gave me lovely nostalgia of when I was in London last.

  3. I think at this point, Peter’s reply to Hook in “Hook” about sums it up; “To live will be a grand adventure”… Or something to that effect. 🙂
