Days 55-56: Planes, Trains and Buses

Start: Berwyn, PA
End: London, ENG
Miles Driven: 0 (10850.9 total)

On a whim, and in an effort to extend our trip longer, we decided to go to Europe. After 27 straight hours of travelling--including 3 plane rides, 2 train rides, and a bus ride through the German countryside--we finally made it to our first destination: London. Along the way we encountered a cancelled flight, a child bride, and a new roommate named Chako "who's just laying low for a while".


For our first night in London, we scouted out London Bridge, Tower Bridge, and the surrounding area. We had dinner at a pub on Gracechurch St before checking in to our hostel for the night. We are unable to upload photos now so pictures to come later.

You went to London and you didn't tell me!?!

There is so much that you have to do!

Have a kebab, from one of those small kebab shops.

Go to Picadilly Circus, Harrods (I know a great pub near there), Harvey Nichols (go to the fish counter on the top floor and tell the seedy looking American guy named Guiney that Evan sent you), Covent Garden, Portabello Road, my local pub, MY HOUSE!!!

IM me and I'll get you the inside skinny!

I feel like a crotchety old English teacher, but I have a mistake to point out in that last post. The rain in Spain falls mostly on the plain, not on the flying plane. Anyway, I hope that the rest of your trip is at least as fun as these days.
