84 days gone in a blink of an eye. What a great journey it has been. Now it’s time to make it on that 7:20 AM plane from Haneda Airport back to London Heathrow.
One thing I couldn’t understand is why the public transport is simply non-existent from around midnight until 5 AM in such a huge metropolis. Thus the trip to airport from Shinjuku was a bit painful, but I made it. Even had spare time to get a snack. Due to broken sleeping habits I didn’t sleep that night at all, which didn’t help.
Flight to Beijing were I had a transfer was pretty smooth. It’s only 3.5 hours journey, so I got served some food to keep me quiet and didn’t notice when I touched down. The airport is pretty dull and stuff unfriendly. Plus the signs make you kinda guess where to go as they aren’t obvious.
Regardless, after waiting 5 hours to the next flight I finally boarded the plane and took off. I flew with Air China which was the cheapest option among all aviation companies. I soon learnt why – personnel doesn’t speak English, they are very abrupt and rude, don’t know what smile is and finally you transform into a pretzel at the end of such long journey, because there is barely any space for legs!
Anyway, I was very glad to be in UK where I can eat bread, cheese doesn’t cost leg and arm and people speak English. This pretty much puts a dot over the i.
