Bless the one(s) who invented smart phones. And even more so those brainies who come up with clever applications.
As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post London is a maze, overwhelming due to its size (but more later on being overwhelming), and traffic circulates on the – bloody – wrong side of the road. At least for the majority of the people that’s the case. Coming from continental Europe it took me a considerable amount of time to adjust to this ‘phenomena’. But the ‘Look right/left’ writing on the zebra crossing helps, too.
So, how to find your way around and even more worrisome; on which side of the road should you get on the bus?
Citymapper helps and does a great job. Simply download the app for free, connect to 3G and off you go – wherever you go. The quickest way though is by catapult (download the app and find out what this means)!
