Saturday - December 31st 2016
Today was the last day of 2016 and we spent it in London. What a great way to spend the last day of the year. So after we woke up, we had breakfast, which was included in our package, and then we headed into the city. Our first stop was Oxford Street, where we went to the Disney Store to buy some TsumTsums. TsumTsums are small plush animals and we collect them. After we added three new TsumTsums to our small but growing collection, we walked to Soho and Carnaby Street. There we got a hot coffee at Starbucks and then we just strolled around the small shops until we ended up in the White Horse pub. A few drinks later we got hungry and went to Tibits, a vegetarian buffet style restaurant. The food was great and delicious.

Since it was already afternoon we took the tube to Kensington, where we got our stuff for our New Year's Eve picnic at Whole Foods Market. With a full bag of goodies we returned to the hotel, where we got a couple of beers at the hotel bar and then we enjoyed our picnic in our room. We didn't have any tickets for the fireworks in the city and so we didn't bother spending the evening in the really busy town. At midnight we watched the fireworks on TV, welcomed 2017 and then we went to bed. It was not the most glamorous way to spend New Year's Eve, but we had a wonderful time.
