Today was another "3 countries in one day" kind of day. We packed last night and headed to the airport this morning. We flew from Porto to London. A puzzle in the London airport.
When we got to our terminal to fly out of London, the attendant asked if we would be willing to sit in the exit rows. My mom emphatically replied, "Yes. Absolutely. Of course." We knew exit rows usually had 6 more inches of leg room and we could not believe we got so lucky on an international flight. We got to our seats and there was not 6 additional inches of leg room. There was 6 feet! I thought that because there was no one in front of us, we wouldn't have our own TVs. Turns out they just popped up from the seat. I slept for most of the flight. It was beautiful.
L: We flew into Gatwick and had to fly out of Heathrow. We took a taxi since the bus wouldn't get us there in time. Our driver was very nice. Even if he did drive on the wrong side of the road. // R: Hotels in NYC are expensive. We decided to try out this little place, called Pod 51, after finding it online. It was tiny, but very clean. I would stay there again. It was really close to the subway and in a safe neighborhood.
This is the lobby of the hotel. I was a fan.
