Greetings from London!

Hello bloggers! Thanks for joining us on our trip to England. We finally made it after a long flight last night (thank you, Virgin Atlantic!). And you'll never guess where we are... Starbucks! Yes, even American companies thrive in the United Kingdom (England), it seems! We also saw a McDonalds.

We're both experiencing something that you may have heard about from others who have travelled "abroad"... it's called 'jet leg.' A fellow passenger warned us about it on the plane, but we had no idea how funny it would feel! Without getting too technical, it feels like the middle of the night (even though it's not) and our legs have barely any energy. Luckily, the Starbucks is right next to the hotel, because we're not ready for any "sight seeing" yet!

The people here are amazing... so many differences. Not just the accents, either. It's the little things. For example, it seems that all the ladies over here wear boots. It's fascinating. Plus, their buses have a second (double) level, which allows twice as many people to ride the bus. The English are very committed to mass transit. Go go go!

We'll be back tomorrow with more updates and some photos to share with you. Until then, cheerio (English goodbye)!
