Abu Dhabi to Cock Fosters

Well first things first….we arrived safe and sound in London. We had a lovely empty flight from Melbourne to Abu Dhabi (15hrs) we managed to get maybe 4 hours sleep. We arrived at about 6am Dhabi time…biggest event to happen was i managed to donate my new $300 Kathmandu winter jacket to the country. Yes i lost it but in my short defence it was 27 degrees at 6am and the last thing on my mind was a winter jacket and to be honest the Emeratie didnt look rich enough …annoying but if thats the worst of our trip i’ll be happy.

So we had our next 8hr leg to London and by this point we were getting tired with a rough 4 hour sleep since we left Melbourne. We did manage to stay up the whole time, helped by a kid behind us kicking the seat all trip and then doing a nice big poo in her pants so we could all smell….she of course only spoke Arabic so we couldnt really translate “i hate pooey annoying kids” to her or her mother.

Our decent into London was exactly what i have heard of England, it was foggy and drizzly..but how awesome to finally be here! We navigated our way to the underground and with a friendly cocknie geeza giving us directions to Paddington Station.

We checked in showered up and went exploring just around few blocks.  I found supermarket to see all the different things…yes that excites me! We then found a local pub and i had the bangas and mash with a big drink of bulmers.  We stayed up as long as we could but by 7pm we caved in to sleep.

A long and  suspenseful trip to get here and now the serious exploring begins.
