London for extreme travelers?

Reply Mon 22 Dec, 2008 09:17 am
Hello! My name’s Linda, I’m fond of traveling. Not extreme travel, but relaxing strolling and all of that sort. You know, I always used to thing that London (and Great Britain in generals) is actually that sort of place where one could relax sightseeing attractions and things. No going to extremes! But I was wrong! Going on a journey to London is rather like going to surviving extreme as that city is merely overrun by terrorist folk who not only commit general terrorist acts but also cause minor problems. It is curious that British authority does not inform either travelers (who contribute largely to British Treasury) or own British nationals of the threat, they just keep the lid on it, though the threat is significant!

So, for example, a walk over the London Millennium Bridge nearly cost me my life! On its opening day the bridge was strangely swaying, which I now understand to be result of bridge footings be buggered up by some malicious persons who were never caught by London’s bobbies. That’s ridiculous but after the London authority closed the bridge, they stated that the ‘wobble’ was due to ‘the behaviour of the pedestrians’ who were synchronizing their footsteps with the bridge motion! I should just think so! I wonder what if next time terrorists make the Big Ben fall down, will the London authority state that was due to pedestrians wobbling it over again?!
