Various pictures from my 2006 trip, a Trafalgar's bus tour, on an itinerary called the European Explorer.

I remember on the very final day, when I was to fly out of London, the airport shuttle was very late. Traffic was apparently "mad" according to the driver when the finally showed.

Two other incidents happened that day:

Someone from the European Explorer tour starting just as our was ending came up to me and introduced himself. I thought it was both forward and refreshingly friendly, trying to bond with other members of the tour. Of course, I had to tell him that we were on different groups.

The other thing happened in the hotel lobby, and perhaps thankfully I wasn't there, as it might have happened to me -- Apparently some crooks had arranged a distraction, and one of their number stole a passport off someone in our tour group. On the very day they were set to fly out!
I never did learn how that all played out afterwards as my shuttle came, but I remembered feeling helpless and sorry for them, and also lucky it hadn't happened to me.
