October 28th: Day 1, London
We arrived in London at around 11 am on Sunday morning—after landing, going through border control, collecting our luggage, and taking the Tube to Covent Garden. From there we met up with our AirBNB host (who has been absolutely wonderful) and we got keys to the apartment. After that we explored Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. We ate lunch at a local pub and I ordered a pear cider, which was delicious. Louie had bangers & mash. Then it was back to our AirBNB for a short nap and relaxing before dinner. We chose a random Italian restaurant in the area, Bella Italia, not realizing it’s a chain. Then it was back to our room for sleeping, as we were exhausted from the jetlag.
More photos after the break.
Louie’s photos from this trip can be found on his Flickr set for England.
