We made it! Our amazing little crew of travelers did a great job with an overnight flight and a full day of moving around London getting a feel for the city. After a hectic (and claustrophobic) ride through the tube, we finally made our way to meet our AirBnB host and have settled in a great flat for the evening. P and I took a walk to get everyone some pizza from a yummy shop that was recommended. After a quick dinner, everyone (but me) has literally passed out.
A couple of quick observations from day one...
These reminders are life savers. Cars (and buses) do not stop here.
The city is amazingly clean, but I hardly saw a trash can.
I was hoping the Queen's palace would be a bit more over the top.
Lyra likes a young Prince William vs today's Prince William.
After the craziness of the tube, we rode the bus to our AirBnB. Our hostess Hannah was awesome and very inviting, and we love our home for the next couple of days. She even greeted us with a bottle of Prosecco and some other goodies!
Tomorrow we'll ride a "headless" bus, as Lyra had been calling the open air ones.
Everyone is tired, but a good night's sleep will put us on schedule for a great day tomorrow of exploring! -j
