Okay, here’s a tip. If you fly into London Heathrow Airport, make sure you get the window seats on the left of the plane, and preferably not over the wing. That way, as you come in you get a fantabulous view of London, Richmond Park and the River Thames as you come into land. (Of course, subject to the flight path not changing, which it does every 2 weeks to give the residents a break.)
An expat living abroad in Europe - an export really. Ten years on and I’m no longer the accidental tourist. Europe, UK, Australia, Singapore/Malaysia - I’ve either travelled extensively or lived there. I love travel - the journey, the history, the people, the adventure, the learning. Seeing the world with new eyes and just appreciating what is there. How far the journey I have come. My latest craze is hiking long distance trails - mainly along old monastic / pilgrimage routes. I love old buildings and it’s a way of connecting me with people from the past, their hopes and dreams. Travel taught me, that people are basically the same. And it is through food and culture that we come to have a dialogue. I am incredibly grateful. Thank you for spending some time with me. And do leave a comment so that I know you’ve been by.
