San Francisco to London

After more than 24 long hours of travel we made it to our hotel in London. Tuesday morning we drove from Reno to Walnut Creek where we left our car. Allison gave us a ride to BART and we rode BART to San Francisco airport.

Our flight from San Francisco to Copenhagen was long and uneventful. The plane was only about a third full.

We spent a couple of hours in the SAS lounge in Copenhagen.

And then flew to London. The immigration check in London was 100% automated. I put my passport into the slot, looked into the camera, and the gate opened. We got our bags and caught the Tube into central London. The weather was cold but pleasant as we walked to our hotel.

It was about 10pm when we got to our room. It felt absolutely heavenly to get into a real bed and sleep!!

  1. I am traveling to London in July. What airline did you use? Did you fly into Heathrow? What hotel are you staying at? I’d appreciate ideas of where you plan to visit. Thanks!!

    1. Lori, we flew on SAS. it was the cheapest flight when we booked. We used their Premium economy class. They call it Plus. Having the extra leg room makes a big difference in how I can survive long flights. We flew into Heathrow and will be flying out of Gatwick. We are staying at a hotel called Montague on the Gardens. It is very nice. Let me know if you have any other questions.


  2. So glad to be able to follow your adventures! Interesting and informative about the immigration process! Good to know. I wonder how many more airports are automating?
    Can’t wait to learn more! Please comment on which of your future stops you like best. Fred and I are making our travel list for 2024!
