Thursday 8th September
First priority today was to get my laundry done – the hotel offers a same-day service for 15 pounds. It was a bit pricey but it was to easy and convenient to pass up – I didn’t want to waste time on my last day in London at a laundromat. I dropped my laundry off at housekeeping then went to breakfast. After breakfast, I went to buy a carry-on suitcase to hold all my shopping from the day before, because there was no way I could take it with me on my Contiki, especially with their 20kg luggage limit. I planned to leave the suitcase at the hotel and pick it up when I arrived back in London after my tour.
