Day 28 - The beginning of the end. The way our flights worked out, we would be flying back to Vancouver from London, England. So, we hopped on an airplane from ATH (Athens International Airport) and took off to London. We would have three nights and only one full day there. Obviously not enough to do everything London has to offer, but we’ll take what we can get.
London is extremely expensive and old. We found a hotel called easyHotel, run by the same company as easyJet. Cheap rates and an extremely small space, but in a central area. Upon booking, you are given four options:
- Small room with no window
- Small room with window
- Standard room with no window
- Standard room with window
We took option #1 as we were only going to be there for a few nights. The hotel room was literally a bed surrounded by 3 walls, a hallway no more than a few steps, and a bathroom the size of an airplane bathroom. There wasn’t enough room for two people to walk at once. There was a TV in the room, but £10 for 24 hours to operate it. Other additional charges were: internet, maid service, washing of towels, early check-in all come to mind. Despite this, the location was fantastic, within walking distance of Buckingham Palace. We did exactly that, checked out Big Ben, Palace of Westminster, Oxford Street, and Westminster Abbey, as pictured here.
