Words can't quite expressed how relieved, tired and cranky we are. We set off at 05:30 British time and have only just arrived here in Memphis at 01:00 local time... Or 07:00 British time if you'd prefer. That's 25 and a half hours travelling.
So I guess this is a just a quick entry to summerise our flights and epic journey. To be honest it can be summed up using the following phrases:
New Tiffany's ring at Heathrow.
Lots of wine.
Stupid man in front of me pushing his seat back so I couldn't even eat comfortably - Dave giving him abuse
Middle aged black woman with sass asking Dave his age on the plane and then telling him she doesn't need to see ID she just thinks he looks good.
An hour and half delay - Flight to Memphis missed.
Dave being told off by a security guard for not seperating his belongings properly.
Poor customer service in Shitcago's O'Hare.
Friendly Southern people... Lots of 'em.
Watching a thunderstorm from above the clouds
and finally... Checking into a hotel at Memphis airport with a giant bed and a shower... We made it.
... and to think, y'all thought it would be me causing trouble ;)
Tomorrow we pick up the hire car and head to Beale Street and Sun Studios and the real adventure starts.
G'night from us until tomorrow. We're gonna have a brew and get some shut-eye.
