Our London trip is upon us! Up until about last weekend, the trip seemed so far away, but now it’s like, “Ohmygod, it’s here! Do we have everything?” In a few hours we take a short flight from Washington (National) to Newark–for a two-hour layover, but we know all too well how that seemingly gaping time window can crunch down due to delays–and then we’re off to our transatlantic flight to London (Gatwick), which gets us there tomorrow morning (flight map). Everyone, pray to the weather gods!
We’ll have internet access at the hotel, so I’ll try to post some entries and photos while we’re there. (I was doing an image search on the web for London guides, and I found one of This is London, from the series of children’s books on different world cities by Miroslav Sasek; I totally remember checking them out of the library when I was a kid.)
Speaking of travel, when we get back home next week, we’ll be back up in the skies before too long, headed to the Bay Area for a few days. Thom has a job interview in San Francisco that Friday, a follow-up on a phone interview he had last week; the process is going really well, so fingers crossed! I’ll fly out to join him that evening, and then we’ll spend the weekend with my parents in Daly City. I should start a blog feature, “Where in the world are Jeff and Thom?” (Or appropriately, “Où est mon maître le prince rebelle?”)
