Birmingham Airport, UK
Arrived at the airport too early to check in, so we're sitting in Costa coffee. Indulged in a flapjack and a smoothie :-) Mal's happily reading his kindle (game of thrones) I'm far too excited to concentrate on reading! So I'm doing the usual Facebook, email checking and dabbling for the first time in writing a travel blog.
It's 3:40pm and our flight is at 6:25, arriving at Rhodes around 1am. We're staying at the Royal kresten villa and spa :-) and have treated ourselves to All inclusive 5 star luxury. I'm planning on drinking nothing but fancy fizzy wine and cocktails for the next week, and eating myself silly on cheese.
4:20pm just checked in, my luggage was 4.5k overweight! Had to do a bit of re shuffling with Mal, and finally got down to an acceptable weight. It was that or pay an extra £15 per Kg. The serious airline man thought this was very funny, as I was on my hands and knees rummaging thru my belongings. Mal keeps quite, it's not the first time this has happened, and I'm sure he was expecting it as he's been lugging the case from car to car all morning! As usual I vow to travel light the next time we go away.....
There's also at least an hours delay for our flight, so we now have 3 hours to kill! No idea as yet why the delay has occurred!
