Me again, I'm just sitting in the hotel room while Zach is at his consulate appointment so I thought I'd tell you about our day yesterday...

We got off the airplane and breezed through customs and had our bags within an hour.

We then realized we would hit rush hour so decided to mill about for a little bit and use the airport wifi …

Departure looms...

... across the road, with flashing orange beacons at the sidewalks. Drivers are meant to stop for all pedestrians in zebra crossings. If you are a Beatles fan, you will of course know the famous zebra crossing on Abbey Road where they took the album cover photo. When I lived in London I walked by that zebra crossing multiple times a week, and one time even saw Sir Paul McCartney (before he was knighted) driving a brown Rolls Royce down the road towards me. I was in ...

Friday 13th - Lucky for Us

A travel blog entry by stumblebum


... of many half pints along Whitehall, Strand and Fleet Street. The atmosphere in the run up to Christmas was lovely. Busy pubs with standing room only.

Mid-afternoon and an hour before closing, we finally made it through the doors of St Paul's Cathedral. The cathedral was significantly bigger than most others we had seen but less flashy than in other parts of Europe. The dome was lower inside than I expected but we learned that the outer ...

    Although the rooms are small, the location is convenient from Paddington but it DOES NOT include breakfast although they do will offer you a very overpriced one downstairs which I would not recommend. We arrived from an early flight and they were able to accommodate an early check-in which we really appreciated. This is our second time at a Shaftesbury which we find perfect for an overnighter in London.
