Day 1 PDX to Wimbledon Road Wandsworth: For the first time ever I had a direct flight from Portland Oregon to London Heathrow! A new service offered by British Airways. the times were also great, taking off at 6:00pm Wednesday for a 9.5 hour flight putting me in London at 11:30am on the Thursday. Despite all the stories of Airport Chaos in the UK I said through the airport in about 45 minutes and was soon on the shuttle bus to the car rental place. Next was the most challenging part of the journey an hours drive through London to daughter Anwens home on the other side of the road in a manual transmission car that I haven't driven in over 8 years! All went well though & I arrived safely without incident! I got settled in and then we went to the local Park Tavern for a bite to eat.
