I have created this thing to keep you all updated on my world travels. Come here to read about me!
I flew out of Dulles on 27 Dec. at 6PM. Of course, I barely got past security (almost) because I never signed my passport. Thanks, TSA. Anyway, my very first flight was semi-delayed about 30 minutes, so I had to wait to board by myself, until a very loud sir complained he might not make his connecting flight to London. Instant friends! The flight adviser person assured us we would, so I wasn't too worried. Finally we boarded! The plane was tiny in the sorry-I-just-breathed-on-you kind of way, but luckily, I had a window seat, so I got to see everything there is to see at 7 at night (lights!) It was a short one-hour trip to Charlotte, NC. I booked it across the airport to my next gate, with Very Loud Sir huffing behind me. This 8:50PM flight was delayed about a half hour as well, so needless to say I got a coffee. The next plane was huge! After quickly realizing I was in the wrong seat before the correct passenger had a chance to embarrass me, I was off. 2 movies and 2 hours of sleep later, I arrived at Heathrow Airport, into my sister's waiting arms! Yay London!

This was followed by a lot of walking, stopping to peruse the Apple Market,
|casually levitating ornaments with my mind|
where we met Paddington,
|Paddington says hello|
Then it was over to Leicester Square,
|more like BEST(er) square|
followed by Piccadilly Circus:
|at the corner of happy and tired|
|the Knight Bus whipping by the muggles|
|Paddington looked a little thirsty|
Silly Paddington followed us all the way to Downing Street (hello Prime Minister!)
Then came my first sighting of Big Ben and this annoying picture:
|a little too excited|
|Big Ben & Big Caroline|
|us and ben ft. double decker|
Then we got up nice and close to Big Ben,
|a little too close actually|
|it chimed it chimed!|
Which is when I snapped this picture and realized I was really in London!
