On Thursday evening we began our journey to Jolly O’ England. We flew out of Stewart International Airport in New York. Our flight from SFW was delayed by an hour, which was stressful because we only had a 2 hour layover! Once we landed, we took the shuttle from terminal F to terminal A, then raced to our gate. Once there, boarding began immediately. Thankfully we made it and so did our luggage! British Airways is an awesome airline and we really enjoyed the flight.

We arrived Friday morning around 6:30am in London. Customs was easy, but took a long time because it was our first time going through with our visas. Then we quickly got our luggage and our private taxi took us to our very nice temporary apartment (see pix below). We will be staying here until February 28th, while we look for a permanent place.

After taking a short nap, we grabbed some coffee in Russell Square Park, before heading to the British National Museum. It was really cool and we barely scratched the surface, there is so much to see. Afterwards we grabbed a late lunch and groceries, before heading back to our apartment.

We are so happy to be in London, and ready to explore our new town!
