It was, for the first time in my longest distance travel in life, I flew to London of the United Kingdom. From Phnom Penh airport, formerly Pochentong airport, I took a flight to Bangkok and transited at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, and then reached Heathrow airport of London. For the first time to fly, I traveled to one of the greatest cities. Months later I still feel it was a dream, an unforgettable, unique travel experience I ever had. I stayed four nights in the city, just two weeks before the new year eve.
