Enroute back to Merry Ole England

Well here we are back at Edinburgh Airport. This morning has been a trial. I have been nothing but a referee this morning. All the boys are doing is bickering and fighting. Somebody remind me why bringing them on a European vacation was a good idea! We returned the rental car and took a shuttle from the hotel they operate out of, back to the airport. We then checked in (that is kind of neat, they have a totally automated check in at a touch terminal. We checked in for the flight, and then went to check in our large bags. As we stood in line, an airline employee approached us and asked what time our flight was. I told her and she told us we could not check in our bags until 2 hours before the flight. So we had to go sit down and wait. But there was no seating area in this part of the terminal.
We checked in our bags and went up to the gate…to wait. The security check through here is very efficient. We did not have to wait at all. Well not at the security check point. We now have to wait for our flight to board. That will be in about an hour. I guess it could be worse.
When we get to London (Heathrow) we will have to take the Tube back into the city. This time we are not staying out by the airport, but in the city by the Tower Bridge.
