Going home...

Got my wake up call at 8am, showered, finished up packing and then headed to the airport. 

Well of course, AGAIN, my flight to London was delayed.  I had a connecting flight at 3:15pm to Toronto at Terminal 4.  When we left Amsterdam at 1:30pm, we landed at 2:45pm at Terminal 5 at Heathrow.  All I thought was, 'there is no way that i'm going to make the connection'.  I got on 2 trains, had to go through customs, collect my bag and then make it to my departure gate.  When I arrived at my check-in desk, it was 3:10pm.  They rushed me through security and I just ran my pants off to my gate and thank goodness there were technical difficulties and people weren't finished boarding the plane.  PHEWW!!!

I arrived in Toronto an hour late, got in touch with my mom, which she was driving around and around for an hour looking for me. 

Now I'm finally home and am really missing being in Ireland.  But I know someday I'll be back over there and having the time of my life again. 

I'm now looking forward to my next trip in May to the East Coast!!!
