My First Trip Overseas, Part I

I was looking forward to this trip since last year!
Finally, the day came when I had to wake up real early at 6am,
not to go to school but to get ready to go to the airport. Woohoo!


Days earlier, I heard Mommy and Dadda talking and worrying about our trip (they mentioned something about a volcano in Iceland?).
Mommy was really angry at the volcano and kept saying
"let us go there first and then you can erupt all you want and we can get stranded in UK but not here!"
I guess the volcano did somehow listened to Mommy and our flight were right on schedule.

Tok Abah, Tok Mama, Pak Su and Mama sent us off and at the airport, Umi Yoyoi walked with us right till the boarding room. She was able to do that because she's working there.

The flight to UK took about 13 hours. I had fun and really enjoyed myself on the flight. I played games, watch movies, ate and slept.



Finally, we landed. Mommy put me on the stroller we borrowed from Aunty Alma (because mine is too big) and walked out of the airport. Everything was normal till I felt the wind blew. It was really NICE and COOL! Wow! So, this is why we were looking forward to this trip...

Anyway, we then took the bus to Uncle Keith's house in Cheltenham. I think the journey took 2 hours. I slept all the way and when we finally got off the bus, it was already dark and it was freezing! We took a taxi to Uncle Keith's house but he wasn't home and had left the keys with his neighbour for us. We ate supper Uncle Keith cooked and left for us and slept.



Next morning, I woke up because I heard some noise outside our room. I thought I was dreaming but when I woke up and looked outside, there they were, lining outside the fence. I saw sheep in the field or meadow behind the house! I immediately serenaded Mommy and Dadda with my rendition of Baa Baa Black Sheep. I didn't realise that it was 6.30am because it was bright and sunny outside. I found out that the sun comes out early in UK, apparently. To my surprise, I woke Uncle Keith up too and he peeked into our room to wish us Good Morning, hehe... sorry about that, Uncle Keith.

So, when all of us were finally ready, we went down and Uncle Keith had fixed us some breakfast. He asked Mommy and Dadda of our plan. They said they didn't mind doing whatever Uncle Keith had planned for us. So, off we went to our first sightseeing tour with Uncle Keith.



We came to a place where there were lots of ducks and a river. It was beautiful. We walked around, had tea and scones and finally went to see a miniature village. Mommy said the name of that place is Bourton-On-The-Water.



After that, we went to a museum quite near to Uncle Keith's house. Mommy was the one who wanted so much to go there. She said the museum was the birthplace of a composer named Gustav Holst. I was asleep most of the time we were at the museum. By the time I got up, we were upstairs, somewhere, playing with old toys.



That night, Uncle Keith made Fish n Chips for tea and then after watching a bit of TV, we went to bed. Tomorrow's another big day. We have to wake up at 4am to drive to Bristol (which was about a couple of hours from Cheltenham) to take another flight to Edinburgh.

Why were we going to Edinburgh? That's the whole purpose of this UK trip. I'll tell you all about that in my next post... Stay in touch!
