Have you stayed in any of these establishments? What was your experience?
A London cab driver decided to leave a clipboard in the back of the cab and invite his passengers to write their favorite quotes. Most of them aren’t attributed, so if you like one, you may need to search online for the original source.
Blackcabquotes was spontaneously created in September 2009; my intentions (still a slight enigma) were probably to receive words of wisdom /purpose and direction from a wide range of passengers, who were taking a journey in my London taxi. From the very beginning, the passenger’s interest, creative contribution and feedback was positive, as a result, extracts of the acquired material were soon being shared with the world on this website.
