This is all going to sound very nerdish and very unlike what most people think is fun, but I walk (or cycle) round cities for fun. I’ve been doing it for decades. I fill in my copy of the AtoZ so I know where I’ve been. I now have eleven A to Zs of London. And a couple each of Newcastle and Glasgow and Manchester, three or four street atlases of Brighton, and one-off maps of at least a dozen other towns, all with yellow lines of felt-tip pen filling in the streets I’ve walked on. I must be the only person in the world who thought that the day the A to Z company moved to coloured maps was a disaster. These days, with cheap(ish) digital cameras I even take quite a lot of photos. And (I’m really sorry about this) I take notes. In a little notebook.
No need for shame Ken. Diamond Geezer (a blogging example to us all) has, one suspects, been wandering around London taking pictures and writing things down in notebooks for years. Don’t know about drawing lines on the A-Z though.
Keep an eye on The view from Nunhead Station for more of Ken’s travels.
