Santorini airport is very small, as is the runway. Take off kind of felt like being flung into the air very fast, but we survived it. I spent the 3 & half our flight writing about our Santorini holiday & snacking on Kinda chocolate & tea.
Hello again London!
After picking up our bag we set off on the journey back to Laree & Jason's place via train & bus. It was not fun. Lugging our heavy bags onto trains, across crowded station platforms & into buses is not easy but eventually we made it back.

Our first solo tube trip.
Of course we ended up in China town
For breakfast/lunch we found the cutest little cafe near the Palace, which was full of cute tea sets & decorations. Jeff found his first chai latte too.
After the show we decided to see if we could find North Gower St - aka Baker St. The outside street they use to film the TV series Sherlock. It was super simple to find & is surprisingly small. Very cool to stand at it in person!
No one was home...!
Next was a 2nd trip to M & M world where I think we bought out almost the whole store. Our bag was very heavy & we had to carry it all the way to the South Bank ready for our London Eye ride. I was thrilled to at last get on the Eye & have a birds eye view of the Thames, Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster & so much more. I really enjoyed the ride & the 4D experience afterwards was pretty cool too.
Yay, I made it to the London Eye at last!!
I discovered that I loved catching the tube & buses. The public transport in London is so good & it made it really simple to get around.
