Harvested those meagre resources available to me in the way of luggage space  I started my trip back to “Blighty” and ultimately on to Iceland. Stopping at KK (Kota Kinabalu) for two days (dental appointment). Then to KL (Kuala Lumpur) Sophies G/House Jalan Tun H S Lee,(buy a new netbook in Bukit Bintang,a suburb in KL) for another couple of days.

Amazing, the changes taking place in the city-scape, even in the short time it had been since I was last here.(KL being a hub airport for SE Asia). Subsequently a flight, courtesy of Vietnam airways via Hanoi back to Gatwick.

Hauntingly comfortable feeling landing at Gatwick and travelling through now familiar surroundings through to Euston and on up to the Lake District, to pick up the car

I wish....!

I wish….!

( which needs selling). Down to Manchester, an ill defined stay until the car is sold,  then harvest/submit figures for year end accounts, source some meds, do some housekeeping jobs,pick up warmer clothing for marginally colder climes, then off to Reykjavik.


Landed Keflavik 09:00….Got hauled in by the customs authorities for a cursory search of bags. Crestfallen….

Long  tedious explanation vis a vis the quantity of meds I was carrying…..they allowed me to pass with a small fine for going down the green channel instead of declaring in the red channel.

Anyhow, the weather, apparently has taken a turn for the better since I arrived, so perhaps

this bodes well for my stay….One is indeed hopeful.
