Hello Everyone and welcome to our FIRST blog entry!!! We had a lot of firsts today--like the first time using underground public transportation and our first time almost falling asleep standing up (and the first time going to the bathroom on an airplane--I'm sure you wanted to know). The day started off with us almost missing our flight....yes mom and dad...after you left we got distracted. We were at the gate with plenty of time, but somehow we missed boarding.....and everyone else was on the plane. (We were the second from last so it wasn't too bad...there was a guy that jumped on another 5 minutes after we did). The plane ride was SOOOO long and they tried to starve Heather to death by not giving her dinner. Luckily the guy next to her spoke up on her behalf. We got to watch Shrek and Ocean's 13. Then customs.....we won't talk about that. Too stressful and the longest line ever!! 2 hours to get through.
London is WONDERFULL!!! Once we got the tube situation figured out we did ok. We went to see London Bridge and the tower of london. We got our picture taken with a Beefeater! Heather got a little fresh with him. You'll see when we upload some pictures. We went to St. James Park and Green Park, but somehow missed Hyde Park, the biggest one in London. We also saw Buckingham palace (which is probably what hid Hyde park from view). Our hostel is really cool. Its an old mansion...turned hostel. This is the sleep deprivation talking. We made it, we are having a great time, and we expect a lot of foot massages when we come home. HAHA. We have been awake for over 30 hours, so we're going to hit the sack. Feel free to write us a message. We would love to hear from you!
