Travel Tip #4: Advice from a Purple Hippo
Try hanging out with the locals at their favorite haunts.
This way you get a different perspective and you can make new friends.
When visiting museums or even botanical gardens be sure that you look, rather than touch.
No matter how delicious the displays may appear, do not eat them.
I had quite an adventure getting into our flat in Earl’s Court.
Finding the proper flat was a bit of a trick.
Then I had to open the heavy gate.
Next I had to navigate my way down the stone stairs.
Once I had made it down the stairs it was time to focus on the front door.
I had the house keys, it seemed simple enough.
But how would I turn the key once I got up there? Oh bother, keys were just not made for hippos, perhaps mail slots were.
Home at last.
