Flying My First Inaugural – London to Ljubljana Part 6: Another Fun Filled London Weekend

When we got off the bus it was approaching midnight and it was not a perfect world. We were tired and thanks to the light rain we felt like we were turning from damp to soggy as we trudged across the road to our digs for the night, The Renaissance LHR.
