This is it. Our last day. Mixed feelings this morning – sad that another epic holiday is over but excited to be home to family, friends and creature comforts.
Until check out at 10am, the morning was spent repacking our suitcases. We then decided to chill out today with last minute shopping. We started with some of the shops in Knightsbridge where I finally got my H&M fix. Then Harrods for souvenirs (given we really couldn’t afford anything else in the shop on the last day of our holiday).
We then went to Notting Hill in West London to explore Portobello Road. Notting Hill is still a wealthy area but it is much more funky and arty than Belgravia. The houses are painted different colours which make them look quite striking. Portobello road also had some very funky shops but I had blown my final budget at H&M and Harrods so I just window shopped (oh and got a pedicure) while Glenn did some damage at a record store. What was cool was that this record store was the same one Glenn bought a tonne of vinyl at in 1998. (Reliving the past again?).
We finished our last day with a pub meal of fish and chips, an English pie and beers!!
So off to the airport we trudged with our heavy luggage on the packed underground. That’s all from overseas. Last post will be my final wrap up…. Until then!
