We are so ready for today to come. Actually for the last ten days we have been saying to ourselves, â€śthis sure looked good on paper, but boy will it be good to get home!â€ť :)
We got up and packed and went down for one last very good breakfast at the best hotel we have been in. Eggs benedict, waffles, lots of different meats, fruit, cereals, juices, coffee, tea, and more. It was so hard to chose which to eat.
At 10 a.m. we were down in the lobby for our shuttle to the airport. We were flying out of Gatwick and the driver knew that he had plenty of time, so he took the long way around and it took us nearly an hour and a half to go the 20 miles. But just as we approached our terminal, which luckily was the first drop-off point he realizes he has a flat left front tire. We said our goodbyes, grabbed our luggage from the back and dragged it the last quarter mile to the terminal. As it turns out we are late, and to make it worse, my hubby has packed his carry-on bag with two of the small medieval suits of armor and the metal swords they have. The ex-ray machines spots them and so back we go to check that bag also. A few security people looked at us funny but we knew we werenâ€™t going to do anything weird so we did what we had to do and ran for our plane. We finally made it and got on board and only had to wait just a few minutes before the plane left the gates and rolled out.
The flight home included one stop in
We arrived in
The next morning we were up and ready to head for home. However, we had to wait for a while for our daughter to drive down from
We had lots to share with her and her boyfriend, but we were almost too tired to talk. A thirty-five day trip is hard when you are so busy everyday.
It was sure good to be home!
