Trip Recap Posts:
The flight from Detroit Metro Airport, Michigan USA to Heathrow UK is just under seven hours, plus one must arrive three hours before for international flights. The time change is five hours, so on the way there we gained time; losing it again coming back. Jet lag is no fun, my friends, but we all did okay with naps.

Our hotel in London was just a block from a bus stop, and a few blocks from The Underground. However, there was always a need to hoof it to get to any place we wanted to see. Seriously, we did between seven and nine miles A DAY in London! Less walking in Bath, but we climbed steep slopes, and never used cabs or buses while there.
