Steph and I were on separate flights to Europe. She was flying United and I was flying British Airways in Business Class as that was what the company wanted me to fly. Steph always likes to fly United. I was able to sleep the whole way in the lie flat seats, which were very nice. We managed to meet up in the airport despite me not really having a connection. I met Steph at the train to Paddington Station. We quickly made our way to the airbnb in Notting Hill.

We were staying in what must have been the servants quarters below street level. The place was pretty cozy still, and I really enjoyed the location. We were able to walk through Hyde park and Kensington Gardens. We walked by the Round Pond and the Kensington Palace, then up to Holland Park. We also had our first of five afternoon teas. The first one was at The Langham. This was probably the best food of any of the afternoon teas. The atmosphere was nice, but it was deep inside the building, so I think the ones with the views of London were slightly better locations.

We were able to do our work from the room in the evenings, which left the days open for going around to parks and museums.
