We made it to Heathrow! What a beautiful airport with amazing shopping. Ted Baker... Mulberry... Boots! That said, what a pain in the neck to navigate through! It took us an hour to get from our arrival gate to get to our destination gate. It involved a bus, a train and a thorough search of my carry-on (which was deemed 100% acceptable I might add). We are going to wait for our flight to Nairobi and enjoy a Starbucks or two - pretty sure we won't be seeing many of these for the next few days! Getting so excited for our adventure. I will admit, I'm a little nervous too! Spent some time reading the Lonely Planet Kenya guide as we crossed the Atlantic. Found quite a few places I hope we get the opportunity to visit while we are in Karen! I did learn one little factoid, the town we are staying in (Karen) is named after Karen Blixon, whose memoir "Out of Africa" was a popular book and film! Hope to post soon from Kenya!
