Reposting my European travelogue from October 2005 to kick-start my new blog.
From KL to London
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 Airport after 11 hours of flight. Had a rough time passing through the customs because of the bombing a few months before my visit. The security was understandably tight.
My sister, who was working on secondment in London, was waiting at the lobby when I got out from the customs area. It was great to see her again, as it had been almost a year since we last met; and it was her birthday, speaking of perfect timing for a reunion :)
Took the Underground to Turnham Green, the train was not as crowded as expected. The weather was predictable though, drizzling… not that it’s a bad thing, as I am not a sunshine lover.
Ordered Chinese food for dinner, and rest early after that because I barely slept on the flight. That’s my first day on this trip. And this should be the only post without photo in this travel series.
