Another visit, another view of Earl's Court and it just doesn't get tired!

Another trip over! I must say this though: through the years, with each trip, the pain of leaving London has become less because I know deep down I'll be back sooner than I know it! It's quite funny in a way, also quite pathetic. The other day, a friend of mine said that if he felt bored, he'd drive to the mall, but if Vikram felt bored, Vikram'd fly to London!

Anyway, I hadn't slept too well the previous night. We had a noisy Indian come in late at night, around 11pm and he was just all about banging doors and banging the suitcase on the floor, just noisy and opening/closing the door every 5 minutes, etc. He spoke with a Midlands accent, perhaps he's from Birmingham? Anyway my sleep was checkered thanks to him but  I woke up by 6am on Tuesday morning. My original plan was to go for a long walk around the area but I woke up so late and got ready only around 715am that I had to just run to the airport.

Ahem... like we needed any more proof that I love this place!

Being a huge Onken yoghurt fan, I picked up their mixed berry flavour, the entire Biopot for my 'breakfast'. I caught the District Line to Paddington and took the Heathrow Express from there, finishing off my 'breakfast' on the train! I'm glad I ate all that yoghurt, it sure helped with the calories when I needed to walk around T3: first to the Arrivals Hall to reclaim my Left Luggage, and then to the AA counters to check in. I then passed through security check, and didn't do too much of purchases or eat at "Yo Sushi" like I always do on my final day in the UK. I instead had a cuppa and spent time at the HMV store.

The flight was pretty full, but we only had a 20 minute wait on the runway before we took off, and the flight was peaceful. I chose not to sleep as it was a day flight and I wanted to get back to US timings.

So.............. overall, a short but fun trip to the UK, had a great time as ever. I know I'll be going back in October (infact, my tickets have been booked) so I can't say I felt sad or anything leaving the city! After all, it's London, I'm welcome anytime. And even now, I can feel myself walking on Earl's Court road towards the hostel. It's very special for me, as I said, it feels like home!
