A few photos from London

 

A few pictures from cold evening in London, UK. The weather was brutal: a mix of rain and snow. Wind as well. It took me about an hour to get from Heathrow to the Buckingham Palace, spent around 15 minutes there, and an hour back to the hotel at the Heathrow terminal…

 

Waiting for the flight to Warsaw.

First half of my travel to Ukraine is behind me. Yesterday I arrived to Heathrow International airport in the late afternoon. My initial plan was to leave my stuff at the hotel I booked ahead of time and then go to the city centre  right away. But when I got to the hotel I felt severe jet lag. I decided to take a short nap, but it became a four hours sleep. I woke up at around 8 pm and  decided to go to London downtown no matter what. The underground train, which I paid 12 return, took me right to the Green Park station. This station is located the closest to the Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately, the weather was not very pleasant for exploring the city nor taking photos. Cold and rainy…  Oh well, at least I saw the palace:) The Queen was home, the flag was up and lights were on:)

Just announced that the boarding is starting! See you next time rainy London!

 

Sitting by the gate…

It has been quite a long day! And now the British Airways flight is delayed… Oh well, the only thing that is left for me to do is to enjoy the beautiful Vancouver sunset:)

Almost forgot, this is the first time I will be flying on Boeing 747! Exciting stuff!

This is it!

Typing from my phone. Few more hours until my departure. Never thought I will miss Vancouver. The city is indeed beautiful, especially when it is spring, everything is blooming, and the sun is shining. See you in two weeks!

My upcoming trip

Tomorrow my trip begins. I am flying out of YVR to Heathrow, stay there overnight, and then on to Warsaw. Quick stop there and my final destination will be the city of Lviv, Ukraine. The city I was born in. I have not been there in a while; a lot of things have changed there, especially in the politics and economy. War between the country and Russia, massive devaluation of their currency. Very curious to see how it is there now. I will keep you up to date and will try to post pictures too:)
