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…

We arrived in London Heathrow Airport early. Immigration and custom clearances were smooth. We bought a local sim card and Oyster Travel card and boarded the airport shuttle to Green Motion Car Rental at Holiday Inn Heathrow to collect our rental car, a Mitsubishi ASX. The total rental cost for 12 days was RM5,600. The pricing was inclusive of total collision damage waiver, theft protection, UK value added tax, insurance coverage for two drivers with unlimited mileage allowance.

By 9:00 am we settled documentations and payment and drove out of Heathrow towards north taking the A1 Highway heading towards Cambridge.
