On the road to Rhodes
Well we are finally on the road. A 5 am start for a 7.00 am flight. Have to admit we were a bit worried as there seemed to be a problem the plane which had required engineers to be flown over from Exeter. That said we amused ourselves by looking at everyone else wearing the red and white tracksuits. Plus there were loads of over people we knew at the airport flying to London for the day which included : our next door neighbour; the man who walks his children to school every day with their dog who we don't know but see everyday; Clare Farley off to the UK to get schemes of work. Nevertheless, once we arrived at Gatwick we started the process of queuing to pick up bags, queuing to check-in;queuing to go through to departures. We now have the expensive wait in the departure lounge where new and essential purchases are identified by the second. Hopefully, we will soon be on the plane and experience the joys of airline food eaten in a cramped environment.
