We made it to London safely! It was great to not have to wake up and feel rushed to catch our flight this morning though (we didn’t fly out until 215p). As with all of our other travel on this trip, the flight was great and we had no problems. And since the London Underground connects directly to Heathrow Airport, we were able to easily get into the city. Travel tip – try to avoid coming into or leaving the city around rush hour if at all possible. Although we had no problems getting to our destination, there were a LOT of people on the trains because of the time of day. I know it’s not always possible to avoid that, but at least take it into consideration!

We’re staying with friends of mine here in London, so we spent a good hour or two catching up with them after arrived. We did go into the city for a little while after that in hopes of doing an evening ride on the London Eye, but we didn’t make it in time. So we settled for a pub dinner and a bit of walking around instead. πŸ™‚ Tomorrow, another friend of mine is going to meet up with and spend the day with us, so I’m definitely looking forward to that. Not sure what’s on our agenda yet, so stay tuned for the recap!
