There's our BA landing at SEA-TAC

It was the most bizarre thing. All I know is that I landed in Seattle, did my laundry, went to the hindu temple and slept on Sunday night. I arose rather early on Monday morning, had my ginger chai and after a couple of meetings, I was back on the Uber for the first of 2 BA dailies to Heathrow.

Normally, BA flies the 77W (for the afternoon departure) and the 747 for the evening one. But surprisingly the order was reversed. I'm not a fan of the 747 as it's noisier. And to make things worse, we got a battered old one for the journey. However, what I like about it, particularly the upper deck or "The bubble" is that it's so quiet. And feels so "private". Funnily enough, 1 of the crew was from yesterday's flight so she was quite surprised when she recognised me.

Landing...
LOL! Sweet thing, she asked me if I got good rest. And whilst I thanked her, I asked her if she did. As I could always afford to sleep on  the flight (which I did, anyway) but she couldn't. We joked about it. She even remembered my drink preferences whilst on BA and ensured my Brut Rose glass was never dry!

I slept fairly well. The food was kind of average and we landed on time in LHR and were quickly parked at the gate. I needed to get some office work done so I spent time in Heathrow attending to office email and left close to noon! I couldn't get into Earls Court this time so had to settle into a new hostel. It surprisingly started raining on my way out of Gloucester Road tube stop so I was soaking wet by the time I reached the hostel. Read review of the Curzon House Hotel below. Plus, I couldn't really use my phone's GPS as it would get wet. Fortunately, I found it - and my, the location is brilliant!!

The worst part was that the shared room, way on top (4th floor) and it was a pain climbing through those winding stairwells. I shut my eyes for a bit, and headed out shortly after 1pm. I met my "roomate" - one was a software CEO who just got divorced and was living here whilst his wife and daughter were living in their house in West London.

From here, it was down to Earls Court and onwards to Waterloo to catch my train to St. Albans.....
