Trip Report Hello UK! :)

Jump to last reply

So I arrived here in UK two days ago~ The only thing that went wrong on this trip was the delayed flight from Alaska to Seattle. I almost missed my flight to Incheon, South Korea! I had a 14-hour layover in South Korea. It was around 8 in the evening when the plane landed and immigration was a bit slow but it was alright .. I was in Dongdaemun the whole night. I shopped and ate everything I could.. okay moving on.. I stayed in the Philippines for two weeks and then to Qatar (9 hour layover which I enjoyed very much) I had a friend there so she met with me and toured me around (at night!) onto UK immigration.. I brought so much documents with me .__. the first thing the IO asked was why I was staying for five months (I put 5 months on the landing card) I told him I'm going to stay with my aunt and tour around and then he asked what about my school so I said I was doing homestudy. He then asked me how I'm going to support myself so I showed him my bank statement. After that, he asked me if I have a return ticket, I also showed him that. And then he asked one more time... "Why are you staying for so long?" I told him I wanted to travel before going to college and it kinda proved in my passport (lots of stamps due to previous travels) and then he gave me the green light :D he did not ask for my health insurance or anything like that, lol. I was also surprised he didn't look for an invitation letter from my aunt and a proof that I'm doing homestudy .__.

Overall, this trip was amazing!! Traveling alone at this age makes it all the more fun!! My aunt told me that she'll bring me to Paris and London during my stay here.. I can't waiiit!

The weather here is cold.. but it is incomparable in Alaska lol
