Pausing for a moment

We have rushed through Liverpool Street Station so many times – usually running late so we have missed this status at the front of the station.

But this morning, we were there a whole three-quarters of an hour before our train departed for Ipswich. img_0711Mummy was walking me around the station so I could have a wee and a poo as she thought it was better for us to be early than stuck in traffic as it was rush hour.

As we walked into the station, Mummy stopped to have a look at this statue which we had rushed past many times before.img_0699 We read the plaque next to it.img_0701 And we also found out that the area in front of Liverpool Street station is called Hope Square.img_0707 We’re on our way to Bury St. Edmunds to spend some time with Bow and her mummy, Sandra.img_0712 Another a somewhat long train ride …img_0721 Are we there yet?img_0722May’s comment: It’s amazing how often we rush by things and never see what’s right there. So this is another little discovery in busy London. Children of the Kindertransport – a lovely memorial and thank you to the people of Britain who took in the thousands of children who escaped Nazi Germany.

      Thank you, Liesel! It’s very pretty here in London at this time of year! Looking forward to seeing you here sometime! X

    What a lovely memorial, and a relatively recent addition. One can only imagine what it must have been like for these children to be loaded on to trains without their parents and taken to a foreign country. Sadly many of them never saw their parents again.

    Yet another bonus of having a dog companion. We get to walk around and look at all sorts of,amazing and inspiring things.

    You’ve just added another place for us to visit in June, Liverpool Street station. We enjoy visiting many of the tube stations and the area around them, there is so much to see, learn and explore. That’s one of the many reasons we keep coming back to London and the UK.
