My Hop Across The Pond

I’m finally here!  In London!!

I’m happy to report the weather is not bad.  Not bad at all!

It looks like there’ve been some showers, but I made it from my tube station (Green Park) to my hotel on Half Moon Street very comfortably.

Well, “comfortably” considering I was hauling the world’s largest suitcase filled with 12 jars of honey (plus a complete bee suit and wellies!)

I was happily surprised not to have been given the third degree at Heathrow about my honey smuggling.  They’re probably more used to it going out  of the country than in…

I was determined to post my pithy observations of my flight over, including insightful observations of my fellow travelers. Alas, I spent most of my flight dead asleep with my mouth open, drooling.

Ah, well.  I’ll probably adjust to the time change more easily.

Tonight I will take a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood and prepare myself physically and mentally for my tour of Fortnum’s bee hives tomorrow morning.

Did I mention I found a pair of jeans in Fortnum’s signature eau de nil color? I can’t wait for  their reaction!

    Welcome to England! For some reason I didn’t think you’d have to pack your Bee Suit and wellies… I’m still laughing at the image 🙂

  3. I hope you have a great time and learn a lot! London is one of my favorite cities, have a pint for me 😉

  4. Well, I’m not sure what Fortnum’s signature eau de nil means, I could Google it but I’m afraid Google would tell me I’m a country bumpkin cowboy for not knowing but while you’re there could you tell us if there is any difference in the taste of their bee honey there?
