What I did
Gotta Love Heathrow and the economy the only way to get to the Gates was go through ALL the stores, Duty free first, then of course Harrods and all the glitzy cosmetic ones
Found our seats no problem I had window this time just a little trouble finding a rack for my suitcase, but didn't have to go to the other side of the plane in the back to find one this time. Nice plane 777, We each had our own TV to watch movies or television shows and listen to music. The Flight was 9 hours and left at 1:18pm England time which is 7:18 am Chicago. Flight was good little turbulence at first but nothing later. View was gorgeous went up through England over the Isle of Man that right between Ireland and Scotland. South of Greenland but didn't see it. Over Nova Scotia I believe through Quebec and Toronto into Michigan and home. I haven't been on many planes. On three to Miami and home. then on three back home from St. Louis. Wasn't really nervous, a little at take off on way to Europe but not now.
I have included in these photo's not just beautiful scenery but the the first movies are of our Take off and the last of our landing
Ride was great, Attendants were excellent right there when you needed them if you needed them, Food was fantastic for Airplane food. When the plane landed we all relaxed playing a grandma routine being the last one off, which makes sense NO traffic, Less People less jumble. THEN made our way into O'hare to Immigration. I Know I'm and American but we still need to go through when your coming back into the states. Didn't take us that long to get through Immigration and Customs (strangely it took us LONGER to get through Immigration then Custom's That was just hand them a piece of paper if you had food and off you went, MMM makes you wonder, Security???) . Jim had just pulled up as I walked out so in I went and off we went. Danny Picked the rest up and we all headed to Olive Garden in Schaumburg where our Adventure Started and met my dad there for a welcome home dinner.
Now will jet lag hit Stay tuned.
