It’s 8:00 AM in London and we’ve barely slept, but arrived nonetheless! In my case, I have one too many movies on the plane to thank for my lack of sleep . . . oops. After collecting our bags, we will brave our first experience riding the London Tube to our hotel. Once settled in the rooms, we will embark on a tour of the neighborhood, learning about the many things the area has to offer.
The day will prove especially helpful for situating us in a new and unfamiliar city before we launch into a five-day exploration of London’s literary history. I’m especially pleased because I’ve already had a cup of tea before even leaving the plane! The first of many I hope to enjoy during our time here. For a tea fanatic like myself, there is no better way to begin such an exciting and promising day abroad.
