London day 1 – June 2009

16,549. That is how many steps I walked today according to my Wells Fargo freebie pedometer.

First day in London was really a 1/2 of a day. We took an overnight flight and arrived at noon local time. After immigration, two bathrooms breaks, collecting luggage, customs, buying train tickets, taking the train, transferring to the underground/subway, and arriving at our hotel – it was 2 pm. I think the kids thought we were done for the day, but no……

First destination after finally leaving the hotel was a local McDonald’s. (Not my choice.)

We walked through Hyde Park, to Buckingham Palace, took the underground to the Tower of London, walked over the Tower Bridge, walked along the Thames River, took the underground to Picadilly Circus, ate dinner at a pub, and have finally collapsed at the Edward Lear hotel. 16,549.

    I like this post! That's a lot of steps.. But I liked the detail.I found McDonalds in England to be different.. Like the meat is made from some weird stuff or something. Is that still true?
