Lost in London

That is what Izzy and I were last night for about an hour and a half. I had gone out with her for a walk in her push chair (stroller). I went a usual route but thought I knew my way around so tried a different way back. Wrong move. I ended up having no idea where I was. And did I mention it was raining and getting dark? I asked people where certain landmarks were and tried to find them to no avail. I spent over $20 in phone booths to call Lindsey for directions. She was talking to Alex for over an hour and so the calls were diverted (voicemail). I'd walk a little more, find another phone booth and try again. About half of the phone booths ate my money and would not let me call. Luckily I had taken some money and my debit card with me (I often don't). I finally realized I was in the wrong neighborhood and asked a couple how to get to Kilburn High Street. They told me to take the tube (subway). I got the stroller down the stairs, got on the tube and got to the Kilburn station. oops, I'm used to the Kilburn Park station which is close to Lindsey's. I didn't know there were two stations. I take out some more money at a atm and plan to get a cab. Try to call Linds again and get hold of her. By this time I finally know where I am and start walking towards her neighborhood and she meets me and picks me up. Izzy had a great time, I bought her chocolate, and I got extra exercise so all ended well. I will be sticking to my normal routes now.

I'm glad you made it home safely last night with Izzy! Scared me for a good 30 minutes!

oh pam! that is awful, but glad you made it back home safely!

Crazy lady! I'm glad you finally made it back. It might have been cheaper and quicker to take a cab from the beginning!
