We left HK on Saturday at 9:30pm - so we had enough time in HK to spend with my (Ben's) family!! We even had time to take Ella to Victoria Park and play on a swing!! She's cute!!
HK was great - shopping, food, family, heat, crowds, shopping, walking to the peak (sore legs), running along the harbour (sore legs), visiting the buddha (sore legs), driving ben's uncle's porsche (sore legs), shopping!
However the time has come to move on to our european adventure!! first stop is london. we had a lot of stops on the trip over (6 hours in amman - went quite quickly and we actually had fun - playing "which products do we think the other would choose in the duty free section"). royal jordanian airlines were a pleasant surprise too - nice fish and comfortable seats.
we arrived in london at 3:15pm, and caught the underground in. our hostel is right in picadilly circus!! it seems nice - we're in a 10 room dorm with bunks. we#re on a strict budget in the UK - its all so expensive, however we found a cheap malaysian place for dinner - delicious beef rendang and nasi lemak. picked up some fruit and yoghhurt for breakfast. we're ready to explore london tomorrow!! trafalgar square, buckingham palace, maybe a picnic in st james park cant wait!
first impressions of london............vibrant, fun, funky, mr darcy, pretty buildings, nice customs officer (who thinks gold would be a good investment right now...), good train info guy - clearly we're a bit tired and need some sleep.
we'll upload some london photos soon. we should be doing day trips to Bath and the Cotswolds too.
Peace out! love ben and heidi xo
