    I'm at the airport, waiting for my flight to Toronto. In Toronto, I transfer to a flight to St John's Newfoundland, where I catch my flight to London Heathrow.

    The total traveling time will be about 13 1/2 hours, arriving in London tomorrow at 06:30 local time. It's going to be a very long day.

    Further updates later.

    I hope you'll have a pleasant flight (pleasant flights).

    So you're travelling towards sunrise. :)
    Do you intend to take the Underground to get to your hotel in London?

    Yes, I plan to use the Tube and DLR for the whole trip from the airport to my hotel. The closest station is about a 100 metres from my hotel. The trip should take around an hour and a half.

    Thanks, Skimonkey.
    You'll be interested to know that I've discovered where the nearest Disney store is.:)

    Oh...can you please post some pictures of that? I'd really like to see that. I have never been to England, but wish to go someday! :)

    Are you going for work or pleasure?

    Regardless, have a great time there. I love London; it's one of my favorite cities.

    Safe travels.

    I'm going for the World Science Fiction Convention as well as to tour London before and after the convention.

    Currently I'm in the departure lounge at Pearson Airport in Toronto, waiting for a connecting flight to St John's Newfoundland.

    My flight from Toronto landed a few minutes ago at St John's, Newfoundland and I'm waiting in the departure lounge for my flight to London, which takes off in 45 minutes.

    BTW, it's the same plane I arrived on, cleaned and refueled.
