Point of entry to Europe. It was just a short weekend stopover in London. I really regretted spending such short time there... I fell in love with the city's architecture...
London is the starting point of my journey. First, it is the cheapest point of entry compared to other European cities. Second, I dont' have to worry about accommodation in London
. Third, I've never been to London :) But I do regret allocating only 3 days in London as I truly didn't expect to fall in love with the city... well, not really the city, didn't see enough of it... but definitely with the architecture. Maybe it's the fact that I've been reading lots of trashy romance which were in the Regency era, thus I felt as if I know the places when I was in London... Everything feels familiar and yet unfamiliar at the same time.
Met a young English chap on the plane who told me I have to absolutely do 3 things in London:-
1) The traditional English fish and chips - which I didn't get the chance to sample
2) English Breakfast - thanks my friend's hubby who woke up early on Sunday morning to cook the good old English breakfast for me. Big hug to him.
3) Museums - I only manage to visit 2
So I will definitely go back to London again.. hopefully this time I will stay more than 3 days.
