On the way from Belgium to Southampton across the world's busiest shipping route
Will head off to breakfast then disembark
Now... the job is finding our luggage. Fortunately, Princess has a good system for organizing things
We took the Princess shuttle to London ... reasonably priced and about 1 1/2 hr ride
And this was one of our welcoming sights
The taxi queue at Victoria Coach Station
Between us we had 12 items of luggage!
"Seriously? You think you can get all the luggage and the four of us in that?"
He's obviously done it before!
After a short ride... here's our hotel, The St. James Court.... only a few hundred yards from Buckingham Palace
It was way too early to get our rooms so we checked in, left our bags ....
... and proceeded to walk thru St James Park heading to the Churchill War Rooms
This is where Britain planned and conducted operations to fight WWll ... In secrecy, underground (hopefully safe from German aerial bombardment)
These people spent thousands of hours here from 1940 - 1945 and it became the inner sanctum of British Government
