Reposting my European travelogue from October 2005 to kick-start this new blog.
From KL to London
Took an early ride to the 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 – with exception of the neighbouring Singapore – which is a pretty long break for a self-proclaimed travel enthusiast LoL.
Reached Heathrow 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.
Met my sister at the airport lobby soon after; she was working on secondment in London back then. 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 Chiswick, 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; didn’t see that coming, thought my first meal on this trip would be fish and chips (or at least some western stuff). Rest early after that because of jet lag.
That’s my first day on this trip. And this is likely the only post without photos in this travel series.
