Ready, set... bye
Rise and shine. It was 7 and my cousin was already in the shower. I'm trying not to let fatigue hit me, but I can feel it a bit. I manage to shower, say goodbye and jump on the bus heading to the airport then tube to Victoria. The que to the tubes were insane. Regardless if you went to a self serve kiosk or to a window for assistance the line was just ridiculous. Half of the people were just coming off planes with all their luggage and the other half were heading to work. I looked at the time 8:30, I was supposed to meet Garry at 9 to drop off my luggage at his work... don't think I'll make it in time. I finally jump on the tube heading towards a connecting tube heading to Victoria at 9. Still hoping Garry would be there to meet with me... his meeting didn't start until 10. The tube was packed, I stood next to the window and just stared out the whole time. I'm a bit of a claustraphobe so being in a little area with people pressed against you is nausiating. I was on the verge of passing out when I decided to transfer tubes early. The next tube that would lead me right to Victoria station wasn't too bad. I was able to sit and breath.
