London, here I come!

Reposting my European travelogue from October 2005 to kick-start my new blog…

Took an early ride to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, departing to London to visit my sister and to embark on a 19-days European trip together.

It had been five years since I last travelled overseas (except to neighbouring Singapore), quite a long break for a self-proclaimed travel enthusiast LoL.

Reached Heathrow after 11 hours. Had a rough time passing through the customs because of the bombing a few months before my visit.

My sister, who was working on secondment in London, was already waiting at the lobby. It was great to see her again, as it had been almost a year since we last met. And it was her birthday… perfect timing for reunion :)

Took the Underground from Heathrow to Turnham Green. The train was not as crowded as expected; but the weather was predictable… drizzling. Not that it’s a bad thing, I am not a sunshine lover.

Ordered Chinese food for dinner. And that’s my first day for this trip.
