Yay! At long last! 🙂 After my 15 hours flight (8 hours from Manila to Abu Dhabi and 7 hours from Abu Dhabi to London), I’m finally here in my flat. 🙂
Well, after having experienced being alone in a looong flight, I could say, it’s not that bad after all. I didn’t get bored simply because I was sleeping the whole time. I just had a hard time carrying all my stuff. My handcarry is way too heavy (yes, it is overweight!). I have my SLR. I have two laptops with me. Plus, I still have my super heavy handbag! Oh dear! Now, my back and my arms are extremely painful! Of course, I wasn’t carrying them inside the plane. It was because when I got in Heathrow airport, I had to walk about 10 to 15 minutes from the plane to the immigration! Geeesh! That airport is BIIIG!!! I had to stop every now and then just to rest my arms. When I reached the immigration, I had to wait for 15 minutes because of the looong line. Then when I went to the baggage claiming area, I had to wait again for my luggage. I even thought my luggage was missing. Almost everyone got their luggage, except me! After 20 minutes, my bag appeared in front of me. Hehehe! Good thing when I went outside, I saw a man holding a paper with my name on it! Thank God I didn’t have to wait for my airport transfer! What a relief! 🙂 Oh, and he helped me out with my stuff! He carried everything. At last, free from bags! 🙂
The ride from the airport to my flat is just awesome! 🙂 I got a glimpse of what London looked like. 🙂 Loving the structures! 🙂 We passed by Piccadilly, which is one of the major streets here in London. 🙂 Oh, and I saw Harrods!!! Geeesh! My eyes… my eyes grew big! I also saw Zara, H&M, Harvey Nichols and DKNY along the way. Whew! Oh, and I saw the theaters of Hairspray and Mama Mia. I’m still thinking if I’m going to watch at least one their musicals. That’s what London is also known for so I think I need to watch at least one!!!
Ooooh… I think I wanna live here already! LOL! Well, we’ll see if I would still be saying that after two weeks. LOL! I can’t wait to go around tomorrow (or maybe tonight)! 🙂
