Pick a lane and hope for the best!

Not much to report for today, travelled across from Bath to Ealing (London) to get settled in for the big England v Wales Euro 2012 qualifier at Wembley. The drive was very good, traffic constant but not too heavy and we plodded along in the slow lane and left everyone else to it. Our only problem was right at the end, The Fox and Goose where we were staying is just past a massive roundabout and we missed our turn off. We had to loop around and come back on to the roundabout again– we had no idea where we were going but somehow this time we managed to get it right.

I think it’s fair to say that an Ealing post code wouldn’t rate amongst the top 5 in London! It’s a pretty grotty semi industrial area. But it’s very close to Wembley Stadium (not much other reason to be here). The Hotel however is very very good. We have an excellent big modern room, the staff are friendly, there is excellent parking on site and a tidy Pub out the front. There is also a tube station Hanger Lane just down the road

Looking at Wembly Arch from just outside our Hotel
so we’ll shoot into London central tomorrow before heading off to the game.

In the absence of any options we had a good Pub meal at the Fox and Goose.
