The very first time I was in London was when I was 16 and on a schooltrip. I loved it. Especially the underground (or the tube). Waiting for the train to arrive on one of those platforms with the wind wooshing in first. It was so thrilling! And I didn't even mind being packed in tighter than sardines or the smells of all those sweaty people. I just loved the whole sensation of it all. It was one of the reasons I was homesick after returning home! I wanted to go back to London. Fortunately I have many times since.
