Travel card choices

Hi all – we’ve come across another site with some useful information about the different forms of travel cards available in London. We were trying to figure out which might be the better economical option for public transportation – Travelcards or Oyster Cards.  This website tries to give a breakdown of which card becomes the cheaper option under which circumstances:  London Toolkit  Hope this helps!

Whovian Alert

Yeah, I know, the Whovians are a force to be reckoned with on this trip 😀  Dr. Beckenbach and myself have used an app called CityWalk – London to create our own walking tour of Doctor Who related sites.  It’s roughly a two-hour walk, and includes a stop by the British Film Museum which houses a Doctor Who exhibit (plus a huge Star Wars exhibit, for those who seriously want to get their geek on).  For all interested, we’ll try to figure out a good day (possibly Saturday) to take this walk.

Also remember – if you want to post on this site, go to  and hit the “login” link at the top of the page.  Enter in your Texas State user ID and password (the ones you use to access email) and that’s it.  Send myself or Dr. B an email to let us know you signed up, and we’ll set you as a “user” on the site.  This will let you make comments on the different pages of this site.  You do NOT need to make your own website for this to work.
