We arrived at Heathrow on schedule around 10 a.m. GMT and caught the Heathrow Connect train to Paddington Station. A very short walk brought the two of us to Hotel Indigo Paddington about an hour before our room was ready. No worries. They stored our bags for us and told us we would be VIP guests of the day. This entitled us to a complimentary wine and cheese platter and breakfast tomorrow morning will also be on the house. The cheese selection was generous and quite tasty and we both opted for beer in place of wine to satisfy our parched throats.

A leisurely walk in the neighborhood brought us to the Serpentine in Hyde Park. What a lovely summer day! On the way back we stopped off at The Victoria, a glorious old pub, for more refreshment.

We checked into the hotel about an hour ago. Our room is very small but is stylishly appointed and chock full of amenities including free bottled water and sodas, coffee and tea making equipment, free champagne and fresh fruit. Brad really did his homework in finding us such nice accommodations for our stay.
