- We got upgraded to first class on our London to New Delhi flight for some reason that we do not know, but I never want to go back to coach again. I actually wrote this blog entry from 35,000 miles above the ground.
While in London we saw a graffiti filled cement park where people were doing all sorts of freestyle jumping acrobatics, flips and more
- Piccadilly Circus is like London’s Times Square…filled with lots of neon and too many people!
- While it was Christmas season and there were lights and displays in the more touristy areas, it just didn’t feel like it does in the USA where it beyond commercialized.
- The biggest benefit of the economic crisis is that the dollar was quite good in conversion rates. Gone are the days of 2 to 1 Pound to Dollar.
- After just under 2 weeks in London, Carrie and I have already picked up some of their ways of speaking. (Flat, quite, dodgy, mobile, thanks love, quaint, cheers, etc)
- It pretty much rained or was cloudy the entire time we were in Europe
- Andrew and Lucie were the best hosts ever! Thanks so much guys…it was great to see you and now you have to come visit us Stateside so we can return the favor :)
- London show and hotel
- You think our airport security is harsh, try flying through Gatwick!
- I still love Big Ben and double decker buses as much as I did when I first visited London at age 4
