Amerigos of Radisson Blu

Located in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, this is a nice place to go to when you feel like having some bold-tasted Mexican foods.

Emirates Air Line

At the edge of Royal Victoria dock and crossing the river Thames towards Greenwich Peninsula, Emirates Air Line offers a breathtaking view from 90 meters above London. Riding this cable car gave me a sad reminder that I had to fly back home soon and a holiday, however we extended it, must finally come to a close.

Harry Potter – Magic Deconstructed

Warner Bros Studio in Leavesden has permanent display for the props of Harry Potter movies. The level of details are stunning.  So stunning that part of me wished that I never visited this place, so the magical world of Harry Potter could stay magical in my imagination. But hold on, wasn’t that a patronus flying around?

Royal Victoria Dock

Used to be busy with ship docking activities, the dock is now teeming with cozy hotels, apartments, restaurants, exhibition center, and a cable car system called Emirates Airline. Monuments remembering its past heyday dotted the area. The dock itself still has water and now is used mainly for water sports.  

Sunborn

A yacht, permanently docked at Royal Victoria Dock and turned into hotel, Sunborn offers a rather unique experience for the guests.

A Bit of Bath

One hour and forty minutes train ride away to the west of London, there lies the only hot spring in UK that was used by the local people since before the Roman times. The Roman built a bath out of it, and so the city Bath grew around that ancient installation.

London, at Last

Finally, we reached London, and that concluded our six days journey with our friends.  Here our paths part but continue our friendship still.

Cambridge on Camera

The colleges of Cambridge university as seen from the river and from the street. Somehow I can picture professor Robert Langdon studies and teaches in one of those building. Note: The images displayed in this page do not represent the allegiance to any particular college.

Yields of York

York still has its city wall, a typical feature of many old European cities, but the old City of York is anything but typical.

A Dash of Durham

One of the campus of Durham University is a real castle, and the students live there. I wonder if they have flying brooms. I didn’t see any snitches flew around, though, only some fish & chips.

Scatters of Scotland

Scotland, the place where men wear kilts and where the immortals came from. But the following are more about scenery than scenes.
