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…

Pakistan Day 01 : KL - Lahore

"Slow down and enjoy life. Its not on the scenery you miss by going too fast. You also miss the sense of where you are going and why..." - Eddie Cantor

Day 01: Wednesday, 09 September 2015
KL – Bangkok - Lahore
TG 415/TG 345

From our Bidara house we took an early cab to KLIA and had ample time to have breakfast before we met with 13 others for the group check-in. Our 01:20 Thai Airways TG 415 flight was punctual. There was a 6-hour transit in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport before our next flight to Lahore. The Bangkok Airport was swarmed with jemaah from Myanmar transiting before they fly to the holy lands to perform their Haj.

Our TG 345 flight landed at Lahore Allama Iqbal International Airport around midnight. There was a warm welcome waiting for us on arrival. Our 3 local guides Peter, Ghafur and Rahmet and Omar the driver will accompany us throughout the journey tracing the Ancient Silk Route. Our transport for the Pakistan adventure was a 20-seater coaster, spacious enough to sit the 15 of us and our 3 local guides. Our luggage was piled and secured on top of the coaster and were covered to keep things dry and dust-free.

We checked in Carlton Tower Hotel and had a light supper before we retired for the night.
