London trip this time was unplanned and unexpected. If I have known I’d go back on the same year, I’d apply for 1 year VISA on my first visit last March. In total this was my 3rd time to London and hopefully not going to be the last.
This time, the trip was pretty special because I was going with Hubby and it was like going to the past where were dating 12 years ago. a reunion because 12 years ago we were dating in London. So the real reason why I went to London again in less than a year is because Hubby had a business meeting and I nag and nag until he said Okay for me to tag along.
Anyway the real reason why we went to London was because Hubby had a business meeting and I nag and beg for days until he said I could tag along hahahaha….
We flew by Qatar airlines, only bought the ticket few days before D-day, so it was not cheap. Hubby flying in business and me because it’s personal expense, flying in economy. I’d rather spend the money buying handbags in Bicester then throwing it for business class.
First leg London-Doha was okay, flight was not full. I was sitting by myself on the right wing. Had transit in Doha for few hours. Flying from Doha to London was a disaster. Flight was fully booked. I was sitting on the middle row and a really nasty man kept kicking my seat. I was seriously thinking of reporting it as harassment but seeing the flight is full they can’t really put me anywhere else.
Day 1 – Landing London
We landed in London probably around 6-ish in the evening and a car picked us up and drove us to Novotel Tower Bridge. It was Friday night and not any ordinary Friday either. It was Black Friday so all stores are on sale and open until 10pm. Hence traffic was really bad… it took us more than 2 hours from Heathrow to Tower Bridge.
Hubby and I managed to quickly checked in to Hotel, got dressed and went straight to Oxford street and store-hopping until they were closed at 10pm 😂
Day 2 – Day Trip to Cambridge
The next day was Saturday and we decided to go to Cambridge. I remembered we had our picture inside our wedding invitation taken from one of the college backyard in Cambridge during summer. We thought it would be nice to see if we could find the spot again.
