Day 1

Arrived to LHR from ARN just at the same time as the Queen inagurated terminal 5.

First the pilot said we had to wait up to an hour before disembarking. Flying is not my favorite way to travel! But luck was on my side, whithin that hour I was on the Tube for Paddington via Earl's Court.

All very familiar to a Londoner like me, but good stuff!! typical grey weather. It's always so horribly busy around Holborn tube station.

You should re-post these in the international photos section - you'll get more hits!
