We have safely touched down in cold and wet London. We arrived at 0530 and we took our time to get to the hotel as we weren’t sure if we can check-in so early. But luck was on our side, we managed to check-in and rest for a few hours before venturing out.
Since we’re here since Monday, we managed to open a joint bank account, got my personal bank account and credit card and viewed apartments for rental.
We’re happy to annouce that we found a 1 bedroom apartment in Wimbledon, fully furnished. Although it’s abit far from London town, it’s very near to a HUGE park where we can go hiking or biking. It’s also near a bus stop that can bring us to the Wimbledon town and for me to get to work using either the tube or overland train. It will probably take me about an hr to get to work.
Why Wimbledon? We were not hoping to hangout in London city much… and we wanted more quality of life. I think it’s a good decision.
At this point, the agent is doing reference check. We’re aiming to move in by this Saturday. Once we passed the reference check, then it’s all ok to move in. So wish us luck!
Will update more with pics once we get the chance.
