Hello from England

IMG_2849Hello from England. :) Here is a quick update. Had a good trip here and everything has gone well so far. The ride to JFK took forever in traffic but that isn't anything new really. Once I got there, checked in and went through security I still had plenty of time to sit down and have a meal and some wine. 

Aer Lingus was ok. I honestly was a bit underwhelmed but I suppose they are a budget airline of sorts so it was about what I expected. They only had 1 drink service on the whole flight. The food was so-so, no morning snack, just some OJ. The seat pitch and width also seemed a tad worse. But all in all the flight was a lot cheaper than anything else so I would do it again if needed. :)

Got into London Heathrow a little after 9am. My friend Joanne and her boyfriend Dan picked me up. Went back to Portsmouth to their house where we hung out for a bit before we went to lunch. Had a yummy lunch at a place called "The Tenth Hole". After lunch we went grocery shopping at Aldi's. Bought plenty of goodies for my stay here. 

Now we are just hanging out, surfing the web & watching TV. Mostly just trying to stay awake. LOL. Tomorrow we will have a bit more of a real itinerary. Main event stop tomorrow is Whittar's to go tea shopping. Yay. :)

Looking forward to the rest of my stay here. You can click here to see the few pictures I took today.
