Ok, ok, ok. I realise this is not the most enticing of blog posts but I really thought I should tell everyone about this gem.
Now you may think I’m silly for buying a travelcard/Oyster card holder as you get them for free from ticket offices and everytime a new film comes out. (Absolutely gutted I didn’t manage to get the Skyfall themed travelholder!) But, I genuinely think mine is brilliant.
It has the tube map of London on it, with central London on the outside and outer London on the inside. I use my oyster card virtually everyday and despite us being in the ‘age of technology’ and all that, it is so much quicker to just grab this and look up my route.
What’s more, my friends LOVE it. Everytime I’m out for dinner or drinks and it comes to the end of the evening, my card holder gets passes around as everyone figures out their way home!
It may seem small, it may seem trivial but this really does make my life easier. I can’t recommend it enough! You can buy them from the Transport for London Website for £5.99 or in Waterstones on Oxford Street (opposite Selfridges) for £3.99.
