Dad wanted to leave early to make sure we didn't hit traffic on the way to Birmingham. We got there in plenty of time and I was glad, as I usually get my rucksack emptied by security. I was expecting it this time, especially as I only have a one way ticket and a student visa. But, how wrong can a girl be - everything sailed through without a second glance, so we went for a Ribena, avoiding the kids that seem to inhabit airports just to get in the way of people with trolleys.
So, time rolled on and I said goodbye to dad, bought myself an African adaptor and made my way to the plane. Lovely big seats thanks to Lufthansa, with a tv on the seat infront. It really doesn't take much to please me I realised, which could be a good thing in months to come, when things will be tight to say the least. My happiness was just about at it's peak when the map showing the route came on the big screen. Africa here I come!
