Take a cab

By | Category: Travel tips & opinions

Nothing beats arriving in a strange new city – by day or night – and taking a taxi from the airport. This is your first sight of your destination. You’re still decompressing from the flight, you’re absorbing new sounds and smells and you’re weighing up your driver. They’re often emblematic of their city: forthright in London. Brusque in New York. Is yours a saviour or a shyster? And do you really want to see his cousin’s hotel?
