London ~ The idea & preparation

from google images

How often will I be able to say I spontaneously booked a flight to London?! I had a few days off from work, and I didnt know what Id do with myself. Yes, I could have traveled around Korea, but decided to do something outrageous.

Where could I go? I was looking for visa-free countries with my SA passport. The only European countries I was really interested in was the UK & Switzerland

I booked a trip to London which I was going to do alone, but after a while I thought itd be fun if my mum met me there!

Friday morning (January 25) I got the idea of going and by 5pm my ticket was booked and paid for. On Saturday I asked my mum to meet me. Monday her ticket was booked. Wednesday she arrived in the UK and I arrived 2 days later!

I spent the few days before I left shopping for gifts to send back for my dad and brother in SA. I also had other admin to sort out, which went smoothly and pretty quickly.

I've read several articles regarding this... Fraud & Corruption is South Africa's subtitle, don't you think?
