I'm lucky any of my clothes are clean, let alone wrinkle free!
I don't do the whole thinking thing!

Subscribing! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on England and then your trip to Disneyland Paris.. I've still never been there, even though it's the closest Disney park to me

Looking forward to your TR.

I'm alway interested to hear how people like my home-town!

Although I'm more excited for the DLRP bit as we're staying in the HNY next month.

We visited London prior to our DLP trip in 2010 and I added it to the TR. I love re-reading it now, it brings back lots of happy memoires.

Here we gooo....

Day One - February 29

Dave and I were both off work – officially on vacation!!! We sent the girls to school since we weren’t leaving until later in the day. We figured they were going to miss 5 days, they could go for half a day today. Dave and I had a few last minute errands to run, so we took off to the bank, the store…
All packed? Pretty much!



We picked up the girls around 1 :00 p.m. My brother came to take us to the airport and we got there with plenty of time. Once we checked our bags, (free since it was international!) we had an hour to spare. We sat and read, looked out the windows at the other planes and waited for ours to arrive.

Once on the plane, we taxied out, but then stopped. The pilot came on and told us that due to bad weather in Philadelphia (where we had to change planes), we were going to be delayed for about 50 minutes. Yup, sat there on the runway. We still hope to get there around 8:10, which is important because our next flight leaves around 9:10!! But I figured, if the weather is bad, all the flights would be delayed, so no big deal.
Paige was nervous about flying, even though she’d done it before. So I told her to read while we sat there.

We're ready to go!!!




Sarah brought an eagle that her teacher gave her (she goes to Eagle Point Elementary school) to come along and keep a journal of our travels. She had to write it from the eagle's point of view! He had some good adventures. I think she said he wrote that he'd never flown so fast! HA!

We finally took off 50 minutes later, and it was a rather bumpy ride. I don’t think we waited long enough for the storms to pass! The landing was horrible! I don’t love landings anyway (other than that I’ve reached the destination), and this was bad – I was sweating through my clothes!!

So we get off the plane and check the boards to see where our connection gate is and find out that it is ON TIME!!! And 2 TERMINALS AWAY!!! We RAN through the airport with our carryons and we got to the gate and there was two people plus a gate agent there. The two people were flying standby and we were the last ones on the plane!!! We just collapsed in our seats.

We were seated in the middle section of the row – it was 2 – 4 – 2 and it was a pretty nice plane. We had t.v. screens on the backs of the seats and you could choose what to watch – movies (new ones!!), t.v. shows, or the route map! You could also listen to music. Our headphones for iphones/ipods worked, so we saved a few bucks by not having to buy them from US Air!
Once we got settled in, they brought around drinks and dinner! A real meal!! It was actually pretty good. It was a smooth flight and we turned on movies, but fell asleep soon after. I managed to watch The Help, which was great! Paige didn’t sleep much. Eventually, they came around with Danish and drinks in the morning when we had about an hour to go.

We had to circle a bit before landing, because, after all, it was London and there was FOG! It was actually a surprise when we touched down, because we couldn’t even see the runway! They must do that a lot, because it was a nice smooth landing. We drove for a while to get to our gate and then we got through customs. And walked about a mile to get out to baggage claim! I think we walked as far as the plane taxied!

Our plane

Not sure if we were supposed to be taking pictures around customs, but we nabbed this one.


WE WERE IN LONDON!!!

My friend Jenny picked us up at the airport and we crammed all our stuff and the 4 of us into her little tiny car – apparently everyone drives small cars there. For a good reason – the roads are SO narrow!! We hardly saw any minivans or SUVs, which seemed weird to us since they are everywhere here, along with pickup trucks.
Anyway she drove us back to their house, which is the cutest thing! They are living in an upscale suburb called Gerrard’s Cross.


Very English looking, don’t you think?

We unloaded our stuff, got a tour of the house and had to take a quick drive to her kids’ school (where she teaches too) because one of the boys forgot his basketball shoes. It’s a very nice private school, mostly for ex-pat families from around the world.
We needed to do something to stay awake, so we took a walk up to the “village”. It was so quaint – they have a little playground, lots of shops, a few restaurants (including a subway – they are everywhere!). I couldn’t believe how nice the weather was - sunny and about 50-60 degrees!







Jenny has two sons, one is the same age as Sarah and one is 13. We didn’t see much of the boys that day, as the older one and Jenny’s husband had basketball practice. We had dinner and relaxed and tried to make plans for our next day! The girls played foosball and we all managed to stay awake. More or less!




Coming up - our first Royal encounter!
