In one short day, we went from Portland, Maine to Boston for a 5.5 hour over night flight into Gatwick airport, landing a 8am. We both only got brief, restless sleep on the packed plane but we trudged into London and got to see many the famous sights.
Greenwich observatory sits atop a beautiful hill with meticulously planted, million year old, Oak trees and a view of the city like none other. We found our way through the Naval College along the Thames River, Tower Bridge and saw some cool ships.
The Parliament Building and Big Ben where covered in scaffolding, bummer. But there was all kinds of action going on in the street with a critical Brixt vote happened in parliament today. It was fun watching the crowds of people chant for there cause.
Our accommodation for the night are modest. Housed is an apartment complex right outside of Kings Cross, the rooms are neat, the door latch is questionable and I think breakfast will be lackluster but nonetheless we are happy with our beds and ready for a solid night sleep!
