Springtime in Paris

Posted on: Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We started the day with breakfast at the hotel – available from 7am, it was perfect for an early start. After breakfast we ordered a taxi to take us to the Louvre – our research told us to get there early and head straight for the Mona Lisa. Arriving just after 8am, there were already […]

London – my thoughts and impressions

Posted on: Sunday, June 28th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

London is a huge city that seems to be built on top of itself. For the most part it is tall narrow buildings, cramming as much as possible into very little space. The streets are narrow and it surprises me that there isn’t more gridlock – but perhaps that’s a credit to the public transport […]

Au Revoir London, Hello Paris!

Posted on: Sunday, June 28th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Although I had a good sleep, DW had been up early trying to get the washing dry – after four hours in the washer-dryer it was still damp. We had a bit of time left (our train to Paris wasn’t leaving until 11am), so we packed the washing and headed down to the local laundrette […]

The Olde Thatched Inn

Today was a bit more of a relaxed day, heading out to Milton Keynes to visit friends. We took the tube West to Edgware Road, then changed trains to head East to Euston Square. From there it was a short walk to Euston Station where we manged to get tickets for the 9:10am train reasonably […]

Soaked in Bath

Today we had a Coach tour out to Stonehenge, including stops at Windsor and Oxford. We had breakfast at Caffè Nero just outside our door and then headed down to Nottinghill tube station to head over to Victoria. We were suposed to be meeting at the Victoria Coach Station, but directions were a bit misleading […]

A day full of stairs

Posted on: Friday, June 26th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We headed out earlier, aiming to get to the Marble Arch to join the Hop On Hop Off bus. The plan was to go through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, but we were a little late leaving so we decided to skip that. However, we did stop for breakfast at Cafe Diana (across from Kensington […]

Madame Tussauds and more

Posted on: Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Today we started with a short 30 minute walk to Madame Tussauds, with a stop off for breakfast and souvenir shops (didn’t buy anything yet – we had lots to do today). We also managed to organise Oyster cards for everyone and figure out how the tube works (well, possibly how we get to Westminster […]

End of our first night

Posted on: Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Now that I have a bit more time I thought I would add more details. It was interesting watching the stats onthe way to LA – we were at about 11km up and the outside temperature was -50C! I guess it’s not that surprising, I just hadn’t thought about that before. I was also surprised […]

First Destination Reached

Posted on: Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We made it to London at long last. I was going to do a post at Munich but it turned out that the connecting flight was about five minutes walk from where we arrived and was boarding when we got there. Managed to get a quick snap before we left. The flight from Munich to […]

Stage 2 Complete – waiting at LAX

Posted on: Monday, June 22nd, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We have safely arrived at LAX, checked through immigration, collected our bags, deposited our bags for the next flight, found the Lufthansa check-in queues (very long), got new boarding passes, navigated through customs (with a pat down for DW and myself), and now waiting for the flight to Munich. Our plane has just arrived, but […]
