Hi! Back on the blog, with a new fresh article about my last trip of the year! Yes I fly to London for 3 days before Christmas time and I enjoyed it so much ! It was so much needed too ! I had my exams session and just the day after my last one we were on the plane for the big city !
I went to London once, it was with my father and my sister couple years ago. So happy to be back and for Christmas time, for the first time ! We took the first plane of the day to have 3 full days here. But, there always have a but, we had so issues to finally get there…
I don’t know if you heard, but on Wednesday 19th December, on the news we saw that there was some drones flying around Gatwick airport, for some unknown reasons. But I ask myself, why ?? It’s the end of the year, I just did my exams and finally got some time off and then I was not sure to be able to get to London for my trip ?!?! Really ? It sounds like some spoiled child but I really needed some time off to just enjoy to be in another city with my friend and before all the craziness of Christmas with the family.
I was at the gym, the day before we leave, and Léa called me to inform me about those drones that I didn’t know. We ask for some information at Geneva airport but they didn’t know anything about our flight.
As you know the price to get by train to Geneva airport from Vevey is pretty high, I was anxious to get to the airport and just to see on the screen that my flight was canceled. Fortunately, we manage to get to this plane and to finally land to Gatwick airport ! Yay, we had to wait for about 1 hour on the plane, because Gatwick didn’t let us land there but with a lot of chance we finally can take off !
So we arrived with an hour late, but lucky us we got an hour back from the jet lag, we were in London at 9AM. We took the train, it was really fast and then the metro to get to our hotel, the Pilgrm, Paddington. Amazing hotel by the way ! People were so friendly and helpful for everything we needed, I loved the decoration and the vibes were just good !
