Although it was a cold, wet day we chose to go into London as this may be about the only opportunity to get in to see the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition.

Travel photography is a genre I am particularly keen on, and this was an excellent exhibition (as always).  This year it has been delayed by the pandemic, and is in a new location - Coal Drops Yard at Kings Cross. This seems like a great location but, sadly, the pandemic continues to have an effect, and the place was almost deserted.  At all the previous locations (including the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington, the university at Greenwich and the open space near London City Hall) there has always been a good attendance throughout the duration of the exhibition.  It is very sad that, this year, few people are venturing out to enjoy the pictures.

Our journey to and from London was reasonably painless, though disruption to the train service caused delays and some cancellations, which meant that the trains were a little busier than we have previously experienced. However, I didn't feel particularly uncomfortable.
