UK Travel

Our family travel-writing-educational adventure continues. Here's a wrap-up of a month in the UK in pics and a few words. In London we stayed in an extraordinary apartment in the clock tower of St Pancras Station above. (Will share some pictures and the Airbnb link in my next post.) We've since moved on to Copenhagen, Berlin and Prague. Lots of good adventures had. 
Longing for London after 24 hours in the air.
At the British Library
Street art, Neals Yard, London. 
The Strand, London. Have been gathering story fragments for a new book as I travel.
Exploring the old neighbourhood, Shad Thames, where we lived for four years.
With my fine and lovely wife.
Pre-match warm-up at Arsenal v. Stoke City 
A day spent at Bath Children's Lit Fest with author buddy John Boyne and his publisher, the lovely Annie Eaton.
John in action at the fest, reading from his new book Stay Where You Are and Then Leave.
I bought the best notebook from this incredible stationery store, Scriptum, in Oxford.
Breakfast in the Great Hall at Keble College, Oxford University, where we spent a night in student digs.

Found some rock poetry on Brighton Beach.
Writin' a book.
