So, now I am at the airport and this trip is starting to feel like it is real. I have been packing and preparing for a while, but it still didn’t feel real until I got dropped off at the airport. I cannot repack anymore or do any more research. There is no more waiting and guessing what England will be like. In only nine hours I will be touching down at Heathrow airport. They are about to call my part of the plane for boarding, so I’ll continue when I am on the plane.

We have only one hour and twenty-five minutes until we land in London. The flight has been very smooth. I just watched the movie The Help (which was very good-if you haven’t seen it, you should) and then slept for a couple hours. It got light out very early, so it is only 4:20 CST, but it is very bright out and I am pretty awake. The time difference is 6 hours, so when I get there it will be noon. The total flight time is about seven and a half hours. According to the little Tv screen in front of me, we are traveling 537 MPH with a tailwind of 11 MPH. We are 34,999 feet above the earth and it is -53 degrees Fahrenheit outside. The total distance is 4008 miles. Just some stats in case you want to know. 🙂

Now I am in London. I haven’t seen much of the city yet, but I am excited to see everything! I made it from the airport to the hotel with no problems. Paddington station looked just like a London train station straight out of a movie. We have a dinner later tonight with all the students that are in England with IFSA-Butler right now. I will report back in when I have more to tell (and some pictures to show.)

Love to you all back home,
