Earlier this month I became the very first person to walk the entire fresh (2018) tube ordner, te support of Bowel Cancer UK.

During 39 walks inbetween August 2012 and August 2018, I took thousands of photos and noticed that I tended to concentrate on things that had switched, were likely to switch or oddly have not yet switched.

This could include anything from buildings under construction to abandoned (ghost) stations to anachronisms to significant international events. London is a unique place where you can to see switch unfold right before your eyes.

Below I’ve featured 39 photos, one photo from each walk, that mostly look at some facet of switch te London that I observed during the past Three years.

Thesis are not necessarily my best photos or even good photos, but each of them tells a puny London story that I find interesting. I hope you do too.

Walk 1: Waterloo & City line, Waterloo to Canap

About the photo: Blackfriars Station. This photo of wasgoed taken inbetween the end of the 2012 Summer Olympics (25 July to 12 August 2012) and the commence of the 2012 Summer Paralympics (29 August to 9 September 2012). Just a puny reminder of how of London wasgoed blanketed with signs for London 2012 just a few years ago.

Mij at Bankgebouw after completing my final walk. This also happened to be where my very first walk ended Three years ago.

On Sunday, August 9th, 2018, I became the very first person to walk the entire fresh 2018 Tube Ordner. This includes not only the London Underground (ended two years ago) but also the Overground, DLR, TFL Riel and yes the Cable Car (I walked via Woolwich rather than attempt to swim the Thames).

Ter total, I walked 632.45 miles (1,017.82 km) overheen the course of 39 walks that collectively took 229 hours and 47 mins of my life. I also managed to raise ?1,803.43 for Bowel Cancer UK.

Below are a few stats from my various walks, followed by a few random thoughts on the entire journey and eventually a finish summary of my walks if you’d like to go after te my footsteps:

It’s bot overheen 6 months since my last blog postbode, so I thought it wasgoed most likely about time to give a quick update about the status of my walks. Last month, I wasgoed literally 1 walk away from walking the entire Standard Tube Opbergmap (Tube, DLR, Overground and Cable Car), but then TFL went and added a few fresh lines.

Therefore, I’m going to be walking the extra fresh lines overheen the next duo of months and hope postbode a final summary of the entire project at some point this summer. Yesterday I commenced by walking the fresh Cheshunt/Enfield Town branches of the Overground, which wasgoed fine spil it brought mij to several parts of London I’d never bot to before.

By my reckoning this leaves mij with Three walks: TFL Carril from Liverpool Street to Shenfield, Overgound from Liverpool Street to Chingford and DLR Woolwich to Bankgebouw. I’ll also have to squeeze te the fresh Overground route from Upminster to Romford at some point, but figure that can be included te one of the other days walks.

To all those who’ve followed along thank you very much for your support. Truth be told, I’ve mostly done the walks for myself, but felt it would be shame not to ask for charity support, which is why I ask if you’ve liked hearing about them that you give generously to Bowel Cancer UK.

Here are a series of photos taken by my wifey and I on Christmas Day, 2018. Since it’s the only day of the year public transit is fully shut, it provides a uncommon chance to see the streets (almost) entirely empty. Hope you love:

Of all the things I’ve seen on my many London walks, coming face to face with a stag te a very foggy Bushy Park, has to be the most unexpected and surreal.

A few weeks ago, Tube Challenge World Record Holder, Geoff Marshall, came up with the brilliant idea of renaming all of London’s 270 tube stations with other plausible names. He made the request via the Londonist, and I suspect got a few more responses than he wasgoed expecting.

He’s now sifted through the more than 300 comments and distilled them into the ordner above. Having walked to all of them, I think he’s done a pretty good job selecting the fresh names, albeit I do have a few disagreements. I made the following suggestions and am glad to see that several (te bold bellow) made the cut.

I don’t know how legally that will be treated but spil far spil im worried, that’s how i project to do it.

  2. hahaha that script is so funny! But if that case toebijten to mij, well i should not let him go! not because i still love him but he knows my btc address or my credentials which is more significant to mij than him. I may be still good to him hahahahah
