My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

London - 2002


"To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it..." - Confucius

The Crown Jewels… '

A city that first appeared as a small Roman military base during their invasion of Britain a mere 43 years after the death of Christ.
It soon became a port of some importance but suffered a major set back in 61 A.D. when it was burnt to the ground.It was rebuilt and through time London became a centre of considerable importance with a population of people living in fairly splendid surroundings with public baths, paved streets, temples and villas.


Destinations of interests: Top of your list must be the royal palaces, and top of that list has to be William The Conqueror's watchtower, the Tower of London, out at Tower Hill in the City. The Crown Jewels may be utterly spectacular but more interesting still are the stories surrounding the Tower - Traitor's Gate, the death of the little princes - the stuff of legend.
' 'It is easy to walk around London just staring at the profusion of extraordinary buildings in a city that has existed since pre-Christian times, but to get a real flavour of the nation, its heritage and place in history you have to dive into some of its unique attractions.

I was in London in 1995 and 2001.
