London baby!

11 Jul

After almost 30 hours of travelling and waiting in airports, we’ve made it to London – our final leg of travel for a bit. We are incredibly glad to be off the plane and in a nice clean room! We’ve been lucky with flights – so far all being excellent. It took about 2 hours to get through customs and immigration at Heathrow, all the while desperate for a shower and hoping the scary woman at one of the immigration desks wouldn’t give us the third degree about what we are doing in London (poor couple before us did)!

We’re staying at the myOE Guest House in Hammersmith (west London) and after showers, lunch, then perhaps a nice cold beer while watching the football grand final at one of the numerous pubs around this area, we’ll have arguably one of the best nights sleep we will ever have! It feels so great to be in London again (first time for Matt!) and already feeling like we will fit in here nicely. We couldn’t have asked for better weather to greet us – sunshine and little cloud – gorgeous! It’s not too hot that it’s uncomfortable, but just right (watch this space – we’ll be cursing the weather before you know it).

We’ve allocated one day of sightseeing tomorrow before we dive head first into searching for jobs, securing job interviews and looking for cheaper shared accommodation.

We can’t wait to get out and see it all – London style – and we’ll definitely keep you updated with what we’ve been up to!

Hurrah!

    Yay yay yay! Glad to hear your flights all went well etc. Soo jealous! I’d love to go to London : ) But I’m off to Melbourne on Friday so I guess I can’t complain!
    Have fun sightseeing and good luck with your job-hunting : )
