Hi everyone (Krystal typing),
we arrived safe and sound in London to put our trip on pause for a little as it's back to the real world for now.
Our flight from Jordan to London via Germany was over booked, so we opted to wait for the next flight that was 24 hours later. They were going to put us up in a hotel and pay for all other meals..... plus give us 600 euros each!!!! So yeh we didn't mind being delayed! As it turns out they put us on a direct flight that morning and we arrived in London 2 hours later than our orginal flight. 1200 euros, not bad for a 2 hour delay! So yeh that was a real good ending to our tripping around, we get to say goodbye to our credit card debt!
I managed to land a job last Friday, I start tomorrow, will be strange having to get up for work again! Matt has been contact with a few recuritment agencies and is hoping to get some work soon.
We went house hunting over the weekend, which was abit of a nightmare! The first place was more like a dungen. It had real bad lighting and no living room, so you pretty much just live as hermits. Plus the bathroom had nice pretty moldey coloured carpet and the bedroom was painted with life size pink panthers! The second place wasn't much improvement, we got to the front and decided that was enough, it was sort of comission styled buildings. The third place was sort of the bronks of London, heaps of drug dealers and prosties. So yeh, it was nearing dinner time and we though okay we'll just look at one more place. Jumped on the net and found this nice little apartment with photos and we thought we HAVE to check that one out. After looking at it we put a deposit down the following day, and move in this Saturday! It's a 3 bedroom apart that we'll be sharing with 2 other couples, about 30 minutes out of town on the tube. Really roomy and fairly new. We will send thru pics and our land line, plus our new UK mobile numbers via email in the next couple of days.
It has been an awesome couple of months, we covered alot of km as you can see from the map. Can't wait to do it all again!
Bye bye for now
Krystal and Matt
