I first read about the Giant Sequoia trees a few years ago in a National Geographic magazine. I remember it was a cover of a guy hanging from an enormous tree and when I saw it I was just so amazed and never thought such huge trees even exist.

I’d booked a trip to London for 2 weeks, but as usual, I’d wanted to get more out of the 13 hour flight time from Singapore to the ‘other side’ of the world. I remember booking the Caledonian sleeper train ticket at midnight a couple of weeks before the trip, kind of excited and not sure what to expect.
