Though I had planned on going to Richmond Park, line work on the train had me walking around Barnes instead. Barnes has a real small, rich village vibe, though it is still in London. Some of the larger streets with detached houses, driveways and wide sidewalks feel almost American, which help soothe my autumnal homesickness.
Thinking I was going to Richmond, I hadn't planned out a route for Barnes and ended up walking 4 miles more than intended. So here are some photos that prove- though we don't know our final destination, it can be a beautiful journey along the way.
