European Vacation: London Callling
May 28, 2007
Greetings from London, England ! Our trip started out a little slow with check-in and plane delays out of Los Angeles, but we finally boarded our plane. I knew our team would be traveling in style when we put on our furry masks, ear plugs and IPods, along with taking some Tylenol PM to make it easier to sleep. Needless to say, the flight went quickly!
When we arrived in London, we were immediately fascinated by the English cars and the steering wheels on the right side. We got on our charter bus and began our tour of London on a cold and rainy evening. Because of the weather, we stayed on the bus but we did have the chance to see more of the city during those few hours. We saw Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, London Bridge, and the Tower Bridge. We also toured Old City and their central area of downtown that reminded me of Times Square in New York City. Our team was very excited about all the great clothing stores on the famous Regent Street. We snapped pictures of the double-decker busses, beautiful parks, and the guards outside the palace and prime minister's home. There were several giant statues in memory of both World Wars, past American presidents, and a memorial site for Princess Diana.
The city was full of people and we really enjoyed the tour. After we finished, we drove to our Hotel near Gatwick (Jason check the spelling of this airport). We ordered dinner at the hotel and most of us had chicken kabobs, meat pies, and pizza. We headed straight for our rooms in preparation for the 5:15am wake up call and our flight to Poland. We miss you all and will keep you updated as the trip goes on!!!
