The Beginning of Our Journey

Well I arrived in London the 13th of July and waited in the Gatwick airport for Erin to get there.  After an hour, her plane finally lands and we begin our adventure known as public transportation.  We get a train out to the center of London and find our hostel pretty easily.  The trip is going pretty well at this point, no hick ups.  The hostel was pretty cool, placed in this historical looking building in Holland Park.  Having been to Europe before, I was very surprised about how nice the accommodations were.  Not only was it very clean and safe, but it was also in the center of town and close to a metro station.

That night we meet up with my friend Stephen who is also in London, his brother, and this other guy Cody.  We decided to go out to a bar named Zoo Bar, Cody had been there before and said it was a lot of fun.  We had an interesting time trying to find it, and when we were about to turn around, I looked down a small street and saw a sign for it.  We all had a great time...the Americans pretty much took over Zoo Bar that night.
