Part 1 of the journey


Our journey started with a very long plane trip from Brisbane, first stopping for a 3 hour stopover in Singapore then flying on to Heathrow airport London.
We flew Singapore airlines and they were just great...... lots of empty seats on the A380 airbus from Singapore to London so we were able to stretch out in the upper deck..... 26 hours of flying time and this little black duck is stuffed.....

We decided to take the train from Heathrow to our hotel "The Thistle" Hyde Park and boy oh boy was that a mistake......unfortunately for us it was peak hour in the afternoon and it was packed, we came across a lot of very rude people and some really lovely ones as well who helped us with directions and carrying bags up and down very long stairways.....

Note to self......never ever catch trains in London peak hour......
We have met so many lovely people since our first encounter maybe we were just really tired.

More photos to come sadly for you but we are off now for more of this adventure
so..... toodles
