London May-June 2019

Hi Folks

Well ere we are in London town along with about 5 million tourists, but that’s expected in June. We left Melbourne on Sunday the 26th at about 5.30 am. It was a long boring flight to Dubai which took about 14 hours. There was a 90 minute stopover in Dubai, ground temp about 40+ degrees. we then flew onto London, a mere 8 hour flight arriving about 6.30 pm on the Sunday. Didn’t get much sleep on the plane so after a light meal we slept for the next 10 hours or so.

The next day we paid for tickets to get on the hop on hop off bus. This took us all around the usual tourist haunts on two different routes. Images to follow.

The next day we finished off the tour with a boat trip down the Thames from Westminster under all the bridges to Greenwich and back again. The weather was good and a bit windy.

Finally we have finished our visit to London and tomorrow we catch a flight to Iceland, which we are looking forward to.

now to put up a few images that might be of interest to a few of you.

Regards and looking forward to hearing from you
