The first day of our trip is over and it was a great success.
Myself and my travel companions left St John’s at 10:00 NST time, the plane only had 38 passengers . I was able to have an entire row to myself . The flight was uneventful with a little turbulence but over all a smooth flight. International flights are always better for food, they fed us a sandwich, and then breakfast in the am . Heathrow is as busy as always but we had no delays getting off the plane or going though immigration. Our ride in to London took an hour, as we arrived right in the middle of rush hour. The hotel is most impressive , staying at the Hilton near Edgware Road, beautiful hotel and service has been fantastic, the stay are their to help you do what ever it is you need. We had a rest once we got checked in, so a short nap was in order. After our nap we went our exploring and ended up eating in this local diner , the food wasn’t to bad. After exploring the neighbourhood a little more , we quickly realized that the standard maps app for the iPhone is absolute rubbish. After a late lunch we headed back to the hotel for another break, to recharge my electronics and to download google maps which is so much better , its like night and day. After another rest and some chatting about possible plans for tomorrow we headed out again and had supper at a lovely pub. I had a meal of fish and chips ,and a pint of Kronenburg 1664. After a late supper it was time to call it a day. Tomorrow is a free day, with the exception of a themes river boat and pub tour tomorrow night.
The adventure has just begun .
