Brian Pigeon’s Guide to London!
Right – decided to give Pigeon Blog a bit of purpose.
Met some dude called Brummy Pete:
This is Brummy Pete looking all lost and shitting himself in Trafalgar Square.
Brummy Pete flew all the way down from Birmingham for a day trip in the Smoke, no fucking clue where to go or what to do.
Got me thinking – with all the long haul flyers everywhere these days, more and more pigeons are heading to London. Day trips, mini-breaks, sabbaticals, they’re all at it – then, when they get here, there’s no info anywhere telling them where to go or what to do – best places to hang out, make pals, get some kip, pick up the ladies, tuck into a fine throwaway, get pissed, play ‘Shit or Miss’ etc.
So, I’m gonna do it – ‘Brian Pigeon’s Guide to London’.
By a pigeon for the pigeon. Everything a pigeon needs to know when travelling to London.
For starters, how about Best Places To Make New Pals. Obviously Trafalgar Square rocks, but you’ve got to be brave. Can be a bit daunting for an out-of-towner like Brummy Pete.
Best thing to do is come on a Thursday. Thursdays are good. Thursdays are flying practice with Wing Commander P.R. Geon. There are beginners lessons and everything. Not so good for pulling though coz everyone’s a bit focussed.
Took this last Thursday. This is a bunch of dudes learning to fly in formation:
And this is Norma putting in a bit of landing practice. Norma’s from Teddington. She rocks up every Thursday trying to get to grips with the parallel feet manoeuvre:
Tricky stuff. That’s Wing Commander P.R. Geon bottom right, running for cover.
Top day out. Right laugh too.
Anyone else out there got ideas for great places to hang out, eat, shit, or whatever for a pigeon new to London, email them to me – brianpigeon AT gmail DOT com.
