IAS topper Tina Dabi appears to be on a roll as she combines her training trip to London with a clever selection of sight-seeing spots with husband and fellow topper, Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan.

Just couple of days after Dabi wowed her fans on Instagram by posting photos from London’s famous Westminster bridge, adjacent to the British Parliament, the IAS topper couple visited two of the most iconic tourist spots in the British capital.

In her first set of pictures, Dabi was seen standing next to hubby Aamir in front of the famous Beatles Souvenir Shop at Abbey Road. She wrote, “Got an opportunity to visit the Beatles Souvenior Shop at the famous Abbey Road Studios. Also visited the site of the theatre playing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Simply awesome!”

Her post from the iconic Abbey Road in Westminster appeared to strike a chord with many of her fans, who too had visited the place in the past. One fan wrote, “Its famous spot of abbey road in london uk.i miss it now.” Others wrote how her posts from London continued to inspire them to try for the IAS. One user wrote, “Ma’am you both are looking super awesome …Honestly speaking , ur the one who makes me interested about IAS and the journey.I know mam its tough but after seeing u its looks amazing i will do hardwork ma’am thats what i can do….Thank you ma’am.

In another post, Dabi shared her photo with Aamir posing outside the famous 221 Baker Street, home of the world’s most read detective series, Sherlock Holmes. With both Aamir and Tina wearing the detective’s cap, the caption of the post read, She wrote, “221B, Baker Street, London. Home of the world’s most famous detective. #sherlocked.

Sherlock Holmes’ museum is located in central London in between Baker Street underground rail station and the famous Lord’s cricket stadium. The location attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the world every year. Not far from this place is London’s famous Regent Park and Madame Tussaud, which houses the wax statues of some of the most famous global personalities including Indian stars such as Amtibah Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan among others.

Such is the craze for Tina’s posts from London that her number of followers on Instagram has gone up by 9,000 in just a few days.
