Side trip to Maldon, Essex

I’ve come though the new Kotoka terminal 3 a couple times now, the new airport terminal in Accra. Very bright and shiny, it will be interesting to see it when more facilities and shops are in place. Wild Gecko has a shop opening there, which will be nice. One recent trip was to London, with a side trip to Maldon. Yes, where Maldon salt is from!

Maldon is a small town in Essex, on the River Blackwater, an estuary in the east of England. It’s an hour from London by train and bus, and a nice little getaway with a ridiculous number of tearooms. Tiptree jams are also made nearby.

We ambled and looked at the water and sky, had good Chinese at the House of Delight, bought Maldon salt and Tiptree blackcuurant curd, and had a thoroughly nice minibreak.
