We carved out our own little abode under the Departure signs on a back pillar, and settled in for the coldest, most uncomfortable night ever...
Luckily, the staff at Stansted has come to accept the fact that their airport is basically a homeless youth shelter every night, and are kind enough to come around at 4.30am and make sure everyone wakes up and checks-in to their flights in time.
Despite 4 fabulously-interrupted hours of sleep, a large hot chocolate, and a Starbucks, however, I was dead.on my.feet. The moment I hit the seat in the plane, I completely zonked. Which was nice, 'cause I completely missed the pain of take-off. :) The next thing I remember was waking up as we were descending into Eindhoven, and a fantastically gray, overcast, snowy day. :]
