Our travels included a layover in London for breakfast. Yum!
It gets dark early here, so I didn't get to see much of the city by daylight yesterday, but I did capture this picture from our hotel room. It rained on and off all afternoon and evening, but that didn't seem to bother the bikers that were everywhere! We also noticed that very few people had umbrellas - did that immediately identify us as tourists? :-)
It was so much fun to meet up with some other members of the #DEN18 crew for dinner (thanks, @jlubinksy, for organizing)! I didn't get pics of all of the food, but it was delicious!
It was also so much fun to see/meet friends who I will be spending the next several days with! There's always this interesting moment when you meet somebody for the first time who you have interacted with online - it's like you know each other, but you are "meeting" for the first time - but that moment quickly passed and it didn't take long before we were all having great conversations over dinner :-).
A little #hyggetime warm-up at tonight. Great to finally meet a few of the #DEN18 peeps! Thanks for organizing the reservation at BAEST @jlubinsky Fantastic way to start off the week! #googleEI pic.twitter.com/tMRl6gsOhA— Simone Gessler (@simonegessler) November 12, 2018
As we walked home, we caught a couple of streets with beautiful lights up. It feels like Christmas decorations are already up here!
I crashed hard at night and slept for 10-11 hours, but hopefully that means I'm over jetlag now? Today will be a full day of tourist-ing before the academy starts tomorrow!
Thanks for following along in my adventure :-)! I love hearing from friends back home, and I love it even more when I hear from some of you saying that you might want to apply for #GoogleEI in the future - all I can say is, you absolutely should!
