The plane was living from Manchester airport at 11.30am, so we took the train two hours before and went directly there.
I had to perform an amazing gymnastic with my bag, because for some reason the straps were a problem (it wasn't the case three days before...) and I had to queue two times, one for the standard luggage, and the for the oversized luggages. If you know that my bag is just a small and classical backpack...
After getting rid of all those administrative troubles, we went through the security and customs, Romain had the privilege to get a special treatment with explosive detectors..
And then we headed to the waiting lounge to get the chance to eat something and enjoy a last pint of John Smith before going back to Switzerland.
That was a lovely week-end, and I must say that I was really surprised by the city itself. I expected some industrial city, and it turned out to be really nice (its not Rome of course...) and with quite some tourism to be done.
We got 4 days of lovely weather as well, which was amazing if you think that just 5 days later all england was covered with snow and struggling with winter problems.
