We mentioned that we are traveling on our honeymoon and they upgraded us to a suite. The desk clerk carried our luggage up the stairs into the Buckingham Suite. The room is a charming mix of tapestries, quaint wall art, a marble floored seating area and fireplace (albeit not a working one) complete with flatscreen TV and in-room wifi (for purchase). The room is a little chilly, but otherwise very comfortable, clean and well located away from the city hustle and bustle but close to the tube and many cute restaurants, pubs and cafes.

The journey started at a leisurely 3pm, so after a morning of house-tidying and mum worrying we set off and breezed past Taunton with relative ease. Hitting a myriad of traffic jams and roadworks it took us about 4 hours to finally reach Heathrow and Terminal 5. Finding the hotel proved troublesome to the tune of about 20 ...
... before 1730 rendezvous plans. Tended to email and whatnot plus a quick shower. It was very hot in England, certainly so by local standards.
Down to the Thyme Restaurant where Ray got some drinks and then out came my India book for a dedication, the 1703 rum following soon thereafter. Just had it with ice as coke would spoil it. Lots of yapping re the India trip and travel in general. We drank until the 1915 dinner.
... centre along the M5 where we used the facilities and had a coffee. I was very good in not seeking something to nibble on while drinking (which is the norm for me). We then changed drivers and Bob drove through to our hotel in Hammersmith Fulham, arriving just after 2pm. We had travelled further along the M5 till it branched northward toward Cornwall and looped on to the M4 which we ended about 5 - 10 minutes from our destination. Bob parked ...
