My Bubble: It's A Vacation Cum Marathon!

I have never imagined having the opportunity to travel as much as I have this past year. My travel experience has so far taken me to Sydney in Australia, North Island NZ, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzen & Zhuhai in China, Macau & Hong Kong, Tokyo in Japan, Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket & Haatyai in Thailand and not forgetting the nearest across the causeway to Singapore.

These places had once upon a time only been a dream. In exactly a week to the dot, I will be departing for the Europe continent for my very first time. I will be touching down in Paris on Thursday morning (6.40am their local time). We will be in Paris for 4 days before heading off to London on the Eurostar for 5 days of sightseeing which will include a tour of the Old Trafford in Manchester. After that we will be flying into Zurich for another 5 days stay followed by a scenic train ride back to Paris for our flight home.

As I have mentioned previously in my past posts, our travels overseas are either a 'vacation cum marathon' or a 'marathon cum vacation' escapades. So contrary to some beliefs, we are actually on a 'vacation cum marathon' adventure this time because lo kong managed to find 2 coinciding marathons after we finalised our travel plans ... Marathon de Paris on 15 April 2012 and Zurich Marathon on 22 April 2012. There goes 4 days off our vacation days!
