I shall begin the long awaited London travel logs with the most impressive London feature - the Tube. No one has not hear of the tube. But I wasn't at all impressed by it when I first got on it. The reason was because I had a 30kg luggage PLUS a 10kg backpack on me, and I could not spot a single lift in the stations... So I had to 'carry' them up and down the stairs, most of the time, on my own. If you had to go through this, I don't think you'd have a good first impression either, would you! But alas, it is after all, London tube... You must give it some credit.

Yet another crooked house! Starting to wonder why there are so many crooked houses in England? If you know why, please, indulge me! Anyway, this is a lot more famous than the one I shared with you earlier, the one in Canterbury. However, now comparing the two, I don't think this one seems as crooked as the other! What do you think?

Ever wondered why English/European churches are so fascinating? Other than the history, there is something else. Most churches follow a guideline. Here are a few of the guidelines, and once you've become acquainted with them, next time you walk inside an European church, you can keep an eye out for these structures.

Nearing the end of my 2009 UK tour, I only had enough budget and time for either Hampton Court or Windsor. While I still couldn't make up my mind, my friend, with whom I was staying, kindly shared her opinion and decided that Windsor was definitely the one to choose. Well, at the end of the day, I wasn't at all disappointed. But I will always wonder... what Hampton Court is like....
我的2009年英國旅遊將近尾端時，我知道我只有足夠的經費及時間要在Hampton Court與Windsor之間擇一。這兩個地方若沒去過當然是很難選擇。在詢問好心收留我的好友意見之後，她覺得一定要去溫莎。這也就幫了我做了一個大抉擇。雖然逛了一整天下來一點都不失望，但我心裡永遠都會掛念著一個念頭：Hampton Court到底是啥樣子呢？

Actually, after Canterbury, I spent a day in London. But unfortunately, I had ingeniously deleted all the photos I had taken on the first day. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to walk around the same places again, and re-take those valuable photos. So, going in chronological order of the photos, here comes the Windsor series.

This is actually the first time I hung out with my colleagues outside of work, since I started this new job in September. We had a lot of fun chatting. Actually, I had more fun watching and listening to them chat, but same difference. Anyway, we went to a Japanese restaurant, and at first we were going to order our own individual meals, when the waitress suggested that we order a set meal for 4-6 people. (there were five of us).

This may not seem to be a special pub, but to some, it is. I choose to end the Canterbury entries with the Dolphin, because even until today, I recall the fun we had that night.

I thought I had finished the Canterbury entries, but it turned out, there are still a couple of things I wanted to share. This is one of them - the European Food Festival. I think it's an annual event, held in fall. It is festivals like this that really makes one enjoy the UK even more!
