We are in London, First Gatwick

21 oct 2010


The flight on Air Transat was tight. The food was ok, the little bag of a blanket,eye cover(blindfold), ear plugs and socks was a very nice comfort for $7.


At Gatwick airport for the leaving of London.


Yesterday morning we arrived in London. Customs were thorough and we passed through. picked up our luggage and caught a shuttle for £6 for all three of us to the Holiday Inn Gatwick. (with wifi for £ 10).A relatively short trip.


I walked to TESCO supermarket, 5 min. Walk and picked up a TESCO sim card for £10, they had a deal where they increased the £10 to £30 of talk time (a good deal I thought).


We had to change the room due to broken toilet handle, but the hotel had two single beds with a pull-out couch. We had a short nap, took the shuttle with a Very helpful driver. To the airport and caught a train from Gatwick to St. Pancras Stn., London for £12.50 return checked out Clink Hostels, as my sister was staying at one. Tried a fish and chips place …location… Had a very large portion of fish and chips with chips and a salad at £5.50 which for the amount of food I thought reasonable. The boys could note finish their portions.
