Adventus Pt3

London - British Museum

On Tuesday the British Museum was evacuated because of fire alarms.
Today, on Saturday there weren´t any complications so I went in to see what to find.
The result is a collection of portraits, don´t ask from which culture, I just didn´t bother. But look at these faces!

London - Turnpike Lane

To reach the next tube I have to walk along Turnpike Lane - love it :)

By The River Bank

A sunny day, I was decided to visit Tate Modern but started with collecting old pieces of porcelain under the Millenium bridge.
Tate Modern is located in the former Bankside Power Station.
By the way, all London museum are for free.

From Faversham to London

For a last time this summer I waited until the tent was dry and ready to be packed.
On my way to the railway station I once again visited Faversham.

From Whitstable to Faversham

After yesterdays desastrous weather I was astonished about the clear blue sky - and very happy :)
I had a nice ride along lonely seaside ressorts and reached in the evening the pretty village Faversham. I found a camp site not far away.
In the evening I realised that I had been exactly half a year on tour. I cooked me a nice meal and topped up the tea with a splash of whisky. The night was beautiful with clear starry sky and a nice big moon - I decided that it was time to go back to London, get my stuff organised there and return to Germany.

Whitstable - Shopwindow Halloween

Anyone for a new moustache?

Pirate Radios

In the 60ies it was popular to listen to Pirate radio. What I was able to see from Whitstable were the former forts from WW2 on Shivering Sands, later Radio City. It´s nickname was The Tower of Power.
Below a video about these forts and a compilation about pirate radios in the UK.

Herne Bay - Anti Hero Scooters

From Reculver to Whitstable

I got back to my tent which still wasn´t dry, but I took it down and had a chat with Terry who was building a new house for his racing pigeons.
Meanwhile it had started to rain, what it did for several hours. But nice enough, as I reached Whitstable in the evening the sun gave a final appearance and I checked in for B&B in order to get dry :)


It hadn´t been raining, but the next morning was really wet and grey. I decided to take it slow, let my tent up for some hours to dry out a bit and go and visit the remains of the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons in Reculver.

From Sandwich to Reculver

My tour from Sandwich to Reculver took me to the site of the first Roman landing in Britain. It was already closed.
I didn´t want to go through Margate and Ramsgate and went across Kent to its other coast side.
Kent seems to be an agricultural important area. Loads of fields are used for growing fruit and the whole area smelled like Cider :) 
In Reculver I once again faced the problem of travelling with old maps. The camp site on the map had closed since the 70ies. But I had luck and the owner of King Ethelbert Inn allowed me to sleep on a piece of his meadow :)

Sandwich - St. Peter

Read about the church here.


As I left Deal I also left the south coast and the Channel.
In Sandwich I had the opportunity to go to a cycle shop. My gears needed to be done. So thanks for the friendly, cheap and fast help!

Deal - Let´s go putting!

Deal - Harbour


I wanted to avoid Dover and its cliffs and Roderick from the camp site in Folkstone had told me about Deal and Walmer, possibly the place where Julius Caesar first arrived in Britain. So I took the train instead of cycling.
The day was grey and cold and I arrived late. Unfortunately the search for a camp site took long time. My borrowed maps are old and former camp sites has often been turned into caravan sites, and they dont like me there.

Deal Town Hall

Folkstone - East Cliff and the Warren Country Park

Close to Folkstone but up the hill and down to the Country Park there is a camp site with a spectacular view of the coast. I just wanted to stay for a night but decided to stay for a second night and listen to the sea at night - and nuthin else :)
The two first pics shows the view from the camp site.

Folkstone - Beach huts!
