Excerpt of article text...

Two years ago I was preparing to go to London for a Xojo Developer Conference... which was postponed due to the pandemic. It was rescheduled, postponed again, and then finally canceled. While annoying, that delay made this event all the sweeter.

Since I attended a Xojo conference in London 2017 and enjoyed touring the city, this time I decided to go a week early and see more of the sights. Rather than stay at the conference hotel (see Figure 1) I managed to rent a small apartment in nearby Camden for my entire ten-day stay (see Figures 2-3).

This proved to be a terrific decision—not only was the apartment perfect and in a great location, but it was useful to have a full kitchen for restaurant leftovers. That first night I found a terrific fish and chips shop just around the corner—the meal was so big, I only ate half of it and was stuffed!

Last time I was in London, I found getting around on the Underground (tube or subway) pretty easy—this time it was even easier as I had a better idea of what I was doing. Plus, in the interim, Apple added transit instructions to Apple Maps and I found its routing helpful. It told me exactly which trains to take to get to Camden and where to walk to the apartment.

The tube ride took me about an hour from Heathrow, but was quite smooth (just one train change and a five minute walk). By early evening I was settled in my apartment. After a nearly ten-hour flight and hours more in preparation and airport travel, I was ready for a good night's sleep.

Saturday morning had me fulfilling a dream: going to my first Premiership Football (soccer) match! I've been watching the EPL since the late 90s and have always thought it would be awesome to go to a game someday. (My last time in London it was a holiday weekend, so there were no matches.)
