The official start of the trip
So here we go 7 am flight out of jersey! (Up at 5am after an hours sleep, bags of fun, please excuse the pun!)
Arrive to Gatwick with ZERO stress, taxi to the infamous Terminal 5 of Heathrow..... remembering horror stories of millions of pieces luggage apparently deciding they didn’t fancy going on holiday with respective owner and wandering off to live a life free of getting dragged to various countries around the world only to be locked in a hotel room for the whole time, not surprised they jibbed their owners!!
Flight to Shanghai called on time, board plane, sat on tarmac not moving for 2 hours while they “de Ice the plane??! (were they using hand warmers or just blowing on it??)
So a total of a 14 hour flight is slowly drawing to a close (1hr 30mins left) Just waiting for suitably rancid airplane breakfast to arrive (Matt where are you when I need a decent breakfast?!)
Speak soon Peeps!
PS FaceBook is a banned site in China so i will be facebookless for the next 2 and a bit weeks!!!
