London: Day 1.5
Includes things from the first night and first day 🙂 We arrived Saturday evening…
Jack and I are on our first vacation since we drove to South Carolina last August! We are in need of some down time. We hate leaving Moca and Bella but we can’t take them with us 🙂
We had a great uneventful trip to the airport and through customs. Our reserved shuttle was on time and easy to find in the airport. The hotel Citadines Trafalgar Square is in an excellent location close to everything! We are psyched 🙂
When we got to the hotel we were given a free smart phone which jack has claimed to call home and use however he wants while we are here.
The room is like a small apartment. Perfect for us and we can cook breakfast and snacks etc. we didn’t expect to spend much time there but it’s comfortable either way. Gym next door is included. Bonus!
We did a lot of walking and got our bearings… Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, the River Thames and 10 mikes of other sights like the Tower Bridge, London Bridge (yes I sang the song as we crossed and scared Jack haha).
We saw a restaurant ice cream place called Milk Train, with a line around the Corner, and then a restaurant called Broccoli Pizza and Pasta with no line 🙂
me: Why isn’t that place crowded?
Jack: If the first word is Broccoli, that can’t be good.
We couldn’t get over the 77 degree temps and clear blue sky!
Cheerio! Hope to post more tonight to catch up on yesterday’s fun and today’s :)…
