Dear Friends & Families,
This is my continuous post which I left off. So we board our flight from Dubai International Airport to London Gatwick North Terminal. The whole journey took us around 7hours and more. I’ll never forget the whole flight journey because I was sitting next to my another colleague who is the same size with me. Haha.. so when I was having my meals in the plane it was like two giant sitting next to each other. Haha.. I managed to catch some sleeps in the plane.
We landed at London Gatwick North Terminal and we need to catch a bus which is free to bring us to the South Terminal to catch our next flight from Flybe to Guernsey. Once we checked in the South Terminal we have another couple of hours to wait for our flight so we spend the time walking around the airport duty free zone. Some of the stuffs is cheaper compare to the price back here but is not as in Guernsey which I found out. We wanted to surf the Internet at the ground floor waiting area but all the WiFi hotspots is not working at all. My colleague and I went to grab a hot soya drink that expensive and not worth to drink. Then only we found out that he overcharged both of us. Darn!
When it was our turn to check in our flight we move to the boarding area head to our plane. The plane is not those 747 or something but is pro paler plane. There is two rows with two seats each row. Inside the plane bought myself a bottle orange juice which cost me a couple of pounds and a small packet of dried fruits. The whole journey took us around one hour and we landed at Guernsey airport. We asked the people there whether we can have a short photograph with the plane and the people in charge give us the green light.
Took some photos with plane and the airport. Then we went to collect our luggages and walk pass the security checks and there standing waiting for us our business partner and two of our taxi driver. Got to introduced ourself and we push our luggages to the taxi which is waiting for us. Two of the taxi not able to fit all of us and our luggages so our business partner will have to fetch two of our colleague to our apartment.
My colleague and I share one taxi and the taxi driver was very friendly and me managed to have a short chat with him. We able to get what he try to say to us although sometime we need him to repeat himself because of his English accents. The taxi driver not just friendly but he drives very adhere to the rules not like Malaysian. I respect them! the journey took us around 15-30minutes from the airport and reached our apartment. The owner of the apartment greeted us and showed us our room which we will be staying for the next 3 months. We got ourself a 3 bedroom apartment which I share the room with my another colleague. The apartment is fully furnished and with WiFi ready! Great… (continue on my next post)
