One of the longest 14hrs i ever thought possible...
14.06.2010 - 18.06.2010 25 °C
Left the beautiful singapore slightly hesitant as enjoyed it so much early in the morning to board my next plane to London.
Had to sit next to these two weird guys that slightly made me a tad nervous about terrorists as they kept going to the toliet at the same time and would take forever and we just odd. But luckily after 14.5 long hours we landed safely at Heathrow airport.
Relief that the plane ride was over and i could finally find a loo, i was ready to run off the plane however.... Some bloody checky bastered had parked in our gate! So we had to wait an extra 1.15mins just sitting there on the taxi way which ment the plane was rocking from the vibrations of the jets still going, the toliet was only 6 rows behind me but the seat belt light stayed on, i sat there feeling motion sickeness and continplating wat they could do to me if i just got up and ran and locked myself in the toilet.
Luckyly just as i was reaching to undo my belt another 15 mins gone, we started moving and FINALLY made our way to our gate.
It took awhile to get through customs, and really is it that hard to smile, it was ohh soo serious! I chickened out and got a taxi to the hostel i was staying at which now i realise i should have braved it and got the tube as the taxi cost me 70pounds!!!!! (about $160NZD!)
The hostel 'St Christophers Inn - London Bridge' was ahh interesting. There are 3 floors which you have to lug your bags up which trust me being short i had to lift my 25kg bag up to just under my chin is not easy. For the first 3 nights I was on the 2nd floor in a 6 bunk room which was not actually too bad once i got over my horror of what an actual hostel is like.
The first two nights/days were very lonley and i spent alot of time reading and on the computer trying to simply kill time. I managed to tag onto a group the third night which lead me to a really good night.
I spend another two nights there, the last being in a different room on the firt floor with 12 bunks, but then headed off to my new home away from home the How's house in Tooting Bec.
