Nothing lasts forever and today was the beginning of the end of our trip. We managed to get packed in good time and we said goodbye to our accommodation (and our host, Sam, who came to collect the key). We had thought that we would get an "Uber" car to take us (and our luggage) to Heathrow but when Satoshi reported that this would cost us £130, we decided that we would manage on the Docklands Light Rail and the Elizabeth Line. Everything went smoothly and it took about an hour to get to the airport. We were able to book into our room at the Hilton Garden Inn as soon as we got there, which was good. The afternoon was spent catching up on journal writing, with breaks for lunch and dinner. Satoshi worked out that our hotel is at Terminal 2 but Qatar Airlines is located at Terminal 4. This will mean a short train ride in the morning but our flight is not until 3:05pm so it won't be an issue.

We managed all this luggage between us!

Expensive Lunch at the Hilton Garden Inn, Heathrow

Even more expensive (but very tasty) dinner at the Hilton Garden Inn, Heathrow

It was a relaxing way to prepare for our travel tomorrow.
