(Quickly) Exploring London
The total travel time from Delhi to the west coast takes a while – about 30 hours door-to-door.
When booking airfare for this trip to India – knowing that I would be connecting through London, I decided to build in a 24 hour layover into the return leg, rather than continue onwards straightaway with a connecting flight. With sufficient time to break up my trip and still arrive home on Sunday, I had a good opportunity to leave the airport, grab a hotel in central London and spend time wandering around the city.
I’ve been to London a few times, but don’t know the city well. Mainly, I wandered for hours with no real plan … exploring the central city with no specific purpose other than simply enjoying a walk before boarding a 12 hour flight back to the US.
