It was time to start the journey home so we headed across to the airport and checked in before heading to the virgin lounge. We grabbed some dinner and drinks, wrote up the blog and soon enough it was time to board. With the mixture of eating, film watching and sleeping, the 13 hours passed quick enough and we were soon landing in LHR.
After arrival we made our way ...
... was quite turbulent but I managed to get a fair amount of z's,. Ryan, not so much!

Its a long 13 hour flight and the last thing you need after that is Terminal 5. Ponce again we get lost and end up out in the domestic terminal.
When we get back to Aberdeen it is cold and there is a light dusting of snow which makes having been away for three weeks feel all the better.
Picked up our Mercedes rental car and off we went. Left Edinburgh heading for Aberdeen with a few detours on the way and a change of plan more than once!!! Think that's all I need to say.

Who knew I had abs?
