Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

London City Hall

This Norman Foster designed City Hall is home to the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.


 Built in 2002 it has an unusual spiral ramp at its core.




 Looking upwards from the Assembly floor you get interesting views of the spiral.

  2. This unique building reminds me of a humongous slinky toy … something that was/is very popular in my part of the world. I would imagine the stairs are dizzying!

  6. I wondered what that building looked like inside! I love your photos of the staircase. They make it look like a chambered nautilus shell.
