My daughter and son-in-law are now working near London and are staying in Surbiton, Kingston-upon-Thames. It is a very nice and quiet place with parks and pond and shops nearby. Since both of them are at work most of the day, my wife and myself have lots of time to "get to know" the area.
In Malaysia it is impossible to walk far due to the very hot weather. Here is so cool and windy and we can walk for miles. On the first day, after our return from Europe trip, we walked to Kingston, about an hour of walking as we are not sure of the bus route. Yes, we do take the bus on our later trips to this busy town. Our next "discovery" is the smaller town of Surbiton, which is about 15 minutes of walking and another one nearby, Tolworth. We took the train to Hampton Court and London too.
We went to Woburn Safari Park and Canterbury and during the recent Bank holiday we spent 3 nights in Cornwall, Wales. We really have a great time - thanks to my daughter & son-in-law.
Now I have lots of interesting photos and it is going to take me some time to sort them out before uploading onto my website.
