On Sunday, we took the last-minute decision to put off our imminent return to the Philippines. The news from South East Asia was all about the Corona virus being rife nearby, and a baby with little immune system made it easy to delay until the beginning of April.
A death in the Philippines coupled with a government that had, until then, refused to shut the border to mainland China, Macau, and Hong Kong, due to ‘diplomacy’ issues was also deeply concerning. Since we changed the tickets this has thankfully been rectified but it remains a worrying time for all over there.
We still took our planned trip to London to do a bit of exploring. It was good to visit a new place, although London doesn’t interest me particularly, it is Instagram heaven for Filipinos. It was enjoyable seeing new scenery and and eye opening to compare Londoners to dwellers from other cities.
We had a few adventures, I got bitten by a horse, and our hotel was horrible. I know you all enjoy reading about when my travels go downhill, and that helps me get through those trying times. Some things could ruin a holiday for a normal person but for me, it’s enough knowing that it’s another adventure that you will get a kick out of reading about, and that will be up in a day or two.
