Mum dropped me off at airport. Terminal 5 seems very futuristic.
I spent the day with strong mixed emotions. I was very sad to be leaving Steph behind to the point where it felt like I was making a big mistake, nervous about the next couple of months on my own and out of my comfort zone but also excited at the opportunity of all the new things I would do and see, starting with my first time on a Boeing 747 and first time crossing the Atlantic.
Heathrow Terminal 5 had just opened and just got past it's initial problems. I remember it being very modern and easy. One last phone call to Steph at work, then time to board...
