London – 16/8/2015 (Day 1)

 

I feel the need to share about my very first solo trip, but I did not want to do it on other social media platforms (I flooded my Instagram profile with too many photos already…). I suppose putting it up here would be best to commemorate one of the most enjoyable times of my life!

 


 

After some intense hours of last minute packing, a high-speed drive to the airport, massive queues at the luggage drop off counters and getting through security, I am ready to jet off to the other side of the world for my great escape!

 

See you in 12 days, home!

 

Greeted by the rush of cool breeze and long queues at the immigration in the ever-busy Heathrow Airport after a 12.5-hour flight, I took the tube from the airport to Central London to the hostel that I am putting two nights in. Generator Hostel is pretty swanky for a hostel and provides good facilities – do check them out!

 

Despite feeling loopy from a long haul flight, I am excited to meet a friend for dinner. I agreed to meet up with Adrian at the Earl’s Court tube station so that he can bring me to this Thai restaurant for dinner. Boy, it was so good to see a familiar face after travelling across continents for hours! 🙂 He brought me to Addie’s Thai Cafe and told me that they serve amazing authentic Thai food.

 

Adrian placed the order (saving me from being indecisive about what to have!), and I must say that the food was HEAVENLY GOOD! [No photos from me, because I was too tired / loopy / hungry to swipe out my phone]

Thai-style iced tea

 

Yum Plamuek – sliced squid mixed with chopped chilli, garlic, shredded carrot, red onion, spring onion and Thai-style lemon dressing.

 

Pla Pad Prik-Sod – deep-fried cod fillet stir-fried with fresh chilli, minced garlic and morning glory (kangkung).

 

Poo Pad Prik Gler – stir-fried soft shell crab with chopped chilli, garlic, spring onions, salt and pepper.

 

 

Not a bad way to spend my first night of my solo adventure. Stay tuned for Day 2!
