British Invasion: Day 1 - Back to the Homeland

So I am off again. After a brief break back at home I am heading off to the United Kingdom today for ten days. The purpose of trip is mainly to visit with family. I was born in England and still have quite a few aunts, uncles and cousins living in England and Wales. For this trip I will actually be traveling with my parents as well. It has been a long time since the three of us have traveled together so it should be an interesting experience. We will be renting a car for the entire time in the United Kingdom as we travel around visiting various family members. Luckily the area we will be traveling around isn't too big so there won't be long stretches of driving required. I have also volunteered to be the driver for the entire time. Hopefully even with my driving this will allow them to relax and enjoy the ride.

First up however is actually getting to the UK which requires an overnight flight. We're also connecting through Toronto on the way out since the direct Ottawa - Heathrow flight was crazy expensive for some reason. At least on the way back home we'll be flying direct to Ottawa.

I am actually writing this entry as we wait to board our final flight to London in Toronto. So far everything looks like it is on time so we should be arriving in London in about 8 hours from now or just before noon local time. Once we arrive and clear customs we will need to pick up the rental car and then immediately head out towards Bromsgrove which is our first stop.

Anyway, our flight is now boarding...bye!
