Day 60: Flag Down with Car Shipped Back to Singapore

We plan to find an agent for shipment of the car and leave the car at the warehouse at the earliest, so that we can return to Singapore.

Anupam started contacting different agents for shipment of car right after 9 am when their offices open. He got quotations from some of them and finalised with one agent. It was also decided that the car can be given before 4 pm today. We had already segregated the items in bags which were to be kept in the car and which were to be accompanied with us.

We had booked the hotel for last 3 days. Now we will have to extend our stay. We shifted the hotel as the present hotel was fully booked for today. Anupam went to warehouse to deliver the car for shipment. It was very tiring day and by the time Anupam could return to hotel after delivering the car it was about 8 pm.

Richa came to meet us in the evening. It was very nice of Richa to have come all the way to Heathrow from her house to meet us. Akshat could not come as he had meetings in the evening.

England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom It is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and English Channel to the south. It shares land borders with Wales to the west, Scotland to the north.

The Country covers five-eighths of the Island of Great Britain, which includes over 100 smaller islands, such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight.

United Kingdom includes the island of Great Britain, the North-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom that shares a land border with another sovereign state, the Republic of Ireland. The difference between United Kingdom and Great Britain includes United Kingdom and Northern Island.

England is part of a constitutional monarchy, but no direct government. The monarch is Elizabeth II. England does not have its own legislative assembly. The legislature is UK Parliament which comprises England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.. However, the Legislative Grand Committee composed of only the 533 MPs representing English constituencies can scrutinize and vote on bills going through parliament which only affect England. 

After reaching London we had the opportunity to interact with media. One of the important interviews was the one with BBC Sports online on 5th July, The reach of BBC Sports is very wide and it was even read by ICC officials. They extended us the tickets for semi-finals and Final matches. Other important series of interviews were with Star Sports in India. We were featured in their “Follow the Blues” programme in India on two days.

The most important was live interview with BBC 1 in their most popular programme BBC Breakfast on the morning of 12th July. It has an extensive reach.

In addition, many popular newspapers in India like “Dainik Bhaskar” and Indian Express also interviewed us and published articles in press and digital media. These interviews were also picked up by many newspapers and agencies online in India. We got very wide publicity.

We got publicity and recognition which was not expected when we started our trip on 17th May. God is great. He has been very kind to us.

We will be home after 61 days of travel. It included journey with all the thrill, ups and downs and excitement of a long trip. We saw so many places on the way. We travelled two continents extensively.

With this blog, I am coming to an end of the blog writing as we are leaving tomorrow for our return journey to Singapore.
