Leaving London

(I will post some photos later. I haven't uploaded anything from the camera yet.)

We are sitting at Heathrow, waiting for our flight to New York after having 3 lovely days in London. I love it here, I really do. There is just something about this place that feels like home and I feel it every time I come.

We've been staying with an old blogging buddy of mine and her family. They stayed with us twice in America, so it was time to return the favour and we had such a lovely time with them. Gorgeous people.

Their house is quite a way out of London, and we seem to have spent a lot of time traveling this trip, but a gorgeous place, and a lovely old house.

We arrived Thursday morning and it was lunch time by the time we finally got out to their house, so we stayed local on Thursday and caught up. Friday Kit and Ella and I went into London and did the hop on and off bus tour for a bit (loads of frustrating traffic) and then went to the London Dungeons which was fun but LOADS of standing in a line to get in. When we came out thought the sun was shining and we did the river ferry Up the Thames from the London Eye to the tower. We got back on the bus and off again to have a look around Covent garden and back on the bus to Victoria station make it home on the train by about 8:30. Yesterday we went back into London and braved the cold and rain on the bus and walking around. I honestly feel like we didn't do that much, but the kids got a good little taste of the city and they both really like it.

Next stop NYC.

  1. LOVE London! All the queueing is frustrating though - the price you pay. Happy adventuring.... 11 degrees here in Hobart and looks like it will be this way for the rest of the week. Safe travelling...
