The Flight to England

Just a few days before Christmas we left Auckland Airport on our way to London. We had been planning the trip all year but the last couple of weeks at work had been so hectic that we didn't have time to think about what was happening. Bryn dropped us at the airport and once we got a chance to catch our breath the excitment began to build again.

We spent three hours in Bangkok on the way and after shopping for a while we sat to wait for the plane. I opened my laptop and found Keith Price online so we started a chat. He told us he had just heard that Heathrow was closed due to fog. This was not the news we wanted to hear when we were just about to get on a plane. However we did manage to land and yes it was foggy. It turned out that the long-haul flights were getting in but the domestic and European flights were cancelled for three days.

So we arrived safely on a cold and foggy morning. Great to see Mum and Nick, and a strage feeling to be back in London after so long.
