Travel / London Day 5

Notting Hill, London 2014
I woke up really early on my last day in London, because someone else had set their alarm at 5 am (yay!). When I stepped into the shower, there was no warm water (yay again!). So by 9 am I was wide awake, 'showered' and had breakfast already. I had to be on the tube around 10 am, to get to the airport on time. So I had some time to kill. I decided to go to Primrose Hill, which is pretty close to the hostel. It was still pretty quiet in the park, except for dog walkers and runners. When I reached the top of the hill, it was so quiet and beautiful. You get an amazing view of the city and the sun was just rising. I was there for about 5 minutes, because I needed to get back to check out and get on the tube. But it was a great way to say goodbye to the city. I got back at the hostel at exactly 10 am, got my bag, checked out and got back on the tube. I put on my iPod and settled in for about an hour on the tube. At the airport I printed out my boarding pass (the only seat left was the one in the middle, yay again), got through security pretty quick and bought myself some lunch at Starbucks from my last few pounds. I sat down at a random gate, ate my food, drank my drink and waited for my gate to be announced (which took a while). The flight home was just as short as the flight to London. Back in the Netherlands I jumped on the first train home and my mum picked me up from the train station. The end! 
(ps. London I love you and I'll be back)
