A taxi was picking us up at mum and dads house, so we made our way down to them, stopping en-route for an italian meal. The taxi arrived on time, we loaded our bags and we were on our way. As expected, there was lots of excitement on the way to the airport, and we were relaying lots of 'do you remember the time when' travel stories. The taxi driver joined in on the merriment and in no time at all we were in departures checking our bags in.

Dad has booked us into a private lounge - never been in one before in my life and when questioned he said that he got it for free. That is where I am right now, sitting waiting for our flight. Looking around me, I'm not entirely sure about the whole getting it for free thing, as you can help yourself to as much drink and food as you want without having to pay - there is free internet - hence me typing this, free games consoles (Johns been eyeing up a golf game) plus loads of other stuff and we're sitting back in leather chairs soft enough that you sink into them and it might just take me a week to get back out of it!! Every now and then a hostess walks past to ensure we are all okay - man, I'd NEVER pay for this kind of luxury, but since I didn't have to I could kinda get used to it.

This time tomorrow I'll be in Tanzania - last night I was like a little kid on Christmas Eve, I barely slept at all - I'm kinda hoping that means I'll crash out tonight on the plane - I'm not holding my breath though!
