I've already been twice times in London. It's very interesting city:) 

I like this series very much it helps me to learn English so i'm very appreciate for  this site.

in our country the famous river is '' indus'' river

Can you explain: "There's more to the Thames than trip down the river". Thanks

It means that trips down the river are not the only interesting thing connected with the Thames.

I found 2 structures in the questions of Nick for Alistair:
1- What 's it like to live on a board?
2 - Is there anything you miss about living on dry land?
Can I say: Is there anything you miss to live on dry land? or What's it like about living on a board?

No, you can't. We say 'what's it like to... ?' and 'I miss -ing'.
