Trip Report Trip report European honeymoon

Jump to last reply

Well here we are. Our first day on our honeymoon.... I decided to do this report day by day so I would have a written account of our journey. We will be visiting London, Greece, Rome, Almafi coast, Venice and Paris. Sunday we flew out of Chicago on Iceland air to London we decided on Iceland air because it ended up saving us around $900 over flying directly into Greece on other airlines. .. So we arrived in London by Way of iceland. Our hotel is very close to Victoria station so we opted to take the tube rather than a taxi It was during peak time so our tickets were about 6 pounds Each. In case you are wondering how to get from Heathrow to Victoria station… Just take the piccadilly line terminals 2 and 3. After about the seventh stop you get off at Hammersmith and literally walk 20 steps and switch To the district line train which will take you right into Victoria. We checked in around 2:30 PM and began walking around London Asking a local gentleman for a good pub in the ambassador District... He not only told us of a good pub but actually walked us to the front door. It turns out that this pub on an obscure and beautiful street is one of the oldest pubs in London. It was called the Grenadier. Had a couple pints of bear… Fish and chips… Great conversations with some of the locals. After that It was back to the hotel for a quick power nap followed by some Shakespeare at the globe Theater. After the show we walked around by the river then hopped on a cab and checked out Chinatown for some good food and Soho and Piccadilly Circus....well it is now well past midnight … My formula for avoiding jet lag…just stay up past midnight... get a full eight hours of sleep and when you wake up you'll be right as rain So nothing left to do on day one but get that eight hours sleep
