Today was entirely travel. We woke up early, ate breakfast, and headed out to the shuttle to the airport. We flew directly to London, Gatwick airport (not Heathrow). Then a driver who we had hired picked us up and took us an hour and a half to the apartment we had rented using HomeAway (which is like Airbnb). Our dad, who had flown in a few hours earlier, met us at the apartment. After leaving our stuff in the flat, we headed to the grocery store, Tesco, to get foodstuffs for our stay in London.
We then ate the cooked dinner with the food we got from Tesco and headed to bed.
