I've Arrived!

I have finally made it to the UK! I left Boston yesterday (on no sleep, thank you adrenaline) at 7pm EST. I arrived in the UK at 11:00am GST (6:00am EST) on no sleep either. I think this is the most hours I have ever been awake consecutively. Right now I'm fighting to stay awake until 9:00pm GST.

Chris picked me up at the airport (I made it through customs in no time flat) and then we drove to his house about 1.5 hours away from the airport. I had trouble with being the passenger in what should have been the driver's seat. I kept thinking that I should tell him to get back in his own lane, only to remember that he was in his own lane. That will take some getting used to. That and seeing cars and feeling for a split second that they are being operated by ghost drivers!

We were both starving when we returned to Princes Risborough so we walked down into town to the "chippie" for some authentic fish and chips. It was To Die For! Later we went for a drive up to Whiteleaf Cross which was this gorgeous vista not too far from Chris's house. We also went on a hunt for a Geo-Caching spot that has been alluding Chris. He found it this time :)

Now we're watching the new mini-series of Torchwood. I love seeing it in HD and before anyone in the US can watch it (unless they're pirates as I usually am).

I'm too exhausted to post pictures at the moment (that would require finding my camera cable and I can't get off the couch right now). I'll try to post the few pictures I've got tomorrow.


  1. I am so happy for you Juliane. It sounds like you are already having a wonderful time I can't wait for pictures. Was the fish better than Sir Crickets?????...LOL
    Sweet Dreams

  2. Great to hear that your already enjoy yourself! Brian always raved about the Fish n Chips when he came back from his trip. Get some rest and travel on!

  3. I knew you would embrace the adventure, sleep or not. Have a wonderful time in the U.K., Juliane, and please say hi to Chris!

  4. I hope you were finally able to sleep last night. Sounds like you're having a great time already! I can't wait to see pictures, hear stories, etc.! :)
