Since the trip to London was last minute, I had to fly alone. I dropped him at the airport at 11:00AM so he could start his journey via Dulles. I went back home to finish packing and pass the time until I had to leave around 2:30.
Thanks to all of Matt's travel I have become quite an efficient packer. The main secret to our packing success is the roll. We roll all of our clothes instead of packing them folded. For some reason this allows an insane quantity of clothing in a suitcase. I am guilty of over packing, but this packing system allows for it with room to spare. I packed two jackets, an extra pair of shoes, five shirts, three pairs of jeans, and all the other necessary accessories for a successful trip.

Upon arrival at Heathrow, I had to find Matt. Thankfully I've been to this airport a few times before so I knew what to expect as far as layout until Border Control. The only thing we did not fully agree upon was where to meet after that. I saw him before he saw me. Thanks to the family signal I caught his attention right away.
We rode the Underground out to Holborn station to find our home for the next few days.
