Once we managed to find our hotel ( Kings Cross Premier Inn ), we take a short break and catch our breath.Â The fact that weâ€™re in London catches up with me here. Or maybe it was the exhaustion.
We decided that to get our systems adjusted to the new time, we needed to NOT sleep, despite the â€œlateâ€ time that our systems were still on. ( Noon, technically, but for us it was 5 AM without any sleep to speak ofâ€¦) So, we headed out to get our first real look at London.
First, let me say Iâ€™m not a big fan of cities, with the scale of my dislike for them being proportionate to their size. Generally speaking, if Iâ€™m in one, Iâ€™m ready to get out just as soon as my business there is complete. Not so with London, which I really like.
We decided we should take the underground from Kingâ€™s Cross to the Waterloo station and walk from there to the London Eye, the huge â€œFerris Wheelâ€ on the south bank of the Thames.Â While at the Kingâ€™s Cross underground station, we went up top to the train station to check on train tickets for the following day to Wales.
