We've Arrived!


Well after a 5 hour delay in Perth, we have made it to England! The weather so far has been great, and the people have all been very friendly. Here is a little photo tour of our first few days...

Here is a view of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Bridge from the giant Ferris Wheel known as the "London Eye."





This is the first Londoner we met, in a small clump of bushes near our hotel - alongside a major London road!





Our first lunch in the glorious motherland was fish n chips at a British pub.





Here is a street sign that made us feel strangely at home!!




This was our first meal in our new home in Nottingham - again, a very British meal of fish n chips!


A picnic in the park that is around the corner from our home.... We have been amazed at just how handy the house is to everything we need - shops, church, uni, park, playground, library, bank... it really is a blessing.
