If I asked you to think of a red double-decker bus, where would your thoughts take you ?
My guess is you would be thinking of London, where the busses, telephone boxes and postboxes are all the same colour.
Now if asked to think of a red double-decker bus in Europe my mind would have instantly taken me back to one of my favourite films, Summer Holiday with the “Batchelor Boy” Cliff Richard swinging his way around Europe in a bid to set up a London bus touring company.
However, next time I’m asked that question, because it’s obviously a question I’m expecting to be asked often, I would probably think first of the bus we saw in Venice on our way to the beach in Lido.
Isn’t this a great use for a London bus ?
