Susan and I arrived at Heathrow yesterday afternoon. It always amazes me how exhausting it is to travel even if you are mostly just sitting. My Partner-in-Crime insisted that the best way to adjust ourselves to local time was to resist our natural urge to
sleep.We thought the best way to find something fun to do would be to ask for help at the hotel desk. The clerk thought for a moment and told us the only interesting thing in town rime insisted that the best way to adjust ourselves to local time was to resist
our natural urge to sleep.We thought the best way to find something fun to do would be to ask for help at the hotel desk. The clerk thought for a moment and told us the only interesting thing in town was the new bowling alley. She must’ve caught the less than enthusiastic glances Susan and I sent to each other as she quickly added that we could take public transport into London.An hour or so after that, we were armed with the highly detailed directions the clerk graciously wrote out for us after I asked her to please direct us to exactly where we needed to go after out the front door. We caught our first bus that was to take us to The Tube. Although we knew exactly which line and exit we needed to take, we were a little
stymied on how to actually purchase our ticket. So I asked the attendant. He gave us a bit of a hard time, but was quite willing to help
us. It wasn’t too long before we found ourselves in front of Buckingham palace just in time to witness the Changing of the Guard. We were thrilled!We wandered around Green Park for a bit, then made our way to Chinatown. We stopped
for nice dinner in one of the many restaurants as we haeaten all day. We really, really wanted to wander around as the night life was starting to pick up, but we could barely keep our eyes open and thought it best to make our way back to our hotel.I’d like
to say it was a piece of cake to travel back to our room, but a combination of unfamliar places, being overtired, and unused to the way English is spoken here, caused small delays. Still, we made it back. Such a great start to our trip. I cant wait for tomorrow!
