So off we go heading to our AirBnb in Solihul. But why not stop by Bicester Village since it’s on the way right?

Let’s drive around Coventry...
For halal fast food in Coventry, head on here.

Time to head on to our AirBnb in Solihull. The check in time was anytime after 3 pm hence why we were buying time visiting here and there.

Home no. 1 for this trip!

Here in Solihull town centre. We parked here for £4.50 and walked around the High Street shops/malls.
Mell Square and Touchwood are literally next to each other. And close to the High Street too.

Our next destination is a revisit from our past.

On the way back to The Midlands we were so famished that we had to stop at a service area. It was Costa and McDonald’s for a quick bite/drink and then refuelling.

By the way, fuel is freaking expensive here! It costs about RM250 for half a tank of unleaded! Mad!!

DAY 5

Dec 21 2018
Woke up really early and was still debating whether to take the long drive to Norwich.

Mekala and I actually joined PROTON in the same year so that means we go back a long while as friends.

A scenic drive to Swindon.

Swindon Designer Outlet

When in Swindon this place is a must visit.

Finding food to eat is always easy in the UK if you are not picky or overly anal. Having said that with 5 different palates to satisfy food searching is certainly an adventure. We looked at the offerings in the main eating hall but decided to have some proper hot food.

You can’t go wrong with Pizza Express!
