We are now on our first day in London! We arrived a bit after 8pm local time last night after a VERY long day of flying, including two delayed flights and sitting on the tarmac in London for 20 minutes while five or six policemen boarded the plane and escorted two passengers off.
We took our first London cab from the airport to the Heathrow Central Travelodge for the night, which has a nice room with a good shower and comfortable bed, both of which we were very grateful for after 24+ hours of flying. I had pre-paid for breakfast, so this morning we had a buffet breakfast including scrambled eggs, toast, sausage, cereal, coffee and juice.
We’re now in the process of packing up, ready to check out and head to our accommodation in the city. Fingers crossed the cab won’t be TOO expensive, because we are not wrangling all this luggage on the train!
