London Bound Bear!

Today is the day!! I am off to London and am I excited or what?? First off... we have to catch and early ferry... the 6:30 am one. Ugh...

The sun came up while we were out on the water... cool!

Then I parked my little bear butt at the Starbucks at the ferry terminal to wait for my Auntie to come and get us via the car. Much easier than trying to maneuver the bus with a big backpack and stuff!

We eventually ended up a the International Terminal at YVR. Of course we were super early....

But that's OK... cause it means we get a primo spot in the waiting lounge and...

Can enjoy another hot chocolate!! Which is beary good...

After that, it was a beary long, beary full flight to Hamsterdam where we had a 3 hour layover and then a short hop flight to London. Then a long Tube ride to Westminster... This is kind of how we both felt at the end of that!

But at least we were in London!!

And got to ride a double-decker bus!! You can tell it's London cause the bus is on the "wrong" side of the road!! And guess what... in a few days we are meeting Beanie Mouse!!! Yes we are... beary excited about that!

  1. Have a great trip. Are you going to Paddington Station?

    Maybe you can visit the Paddington Bear trail going on in London.

    1. Thanks Hammie! I wish we had a day or two in Holland as well. It seems crazy to come all this way and not meet my other stuffie friends on the continent. But... apparently I was not consulted on the itinerary... sigh!
