Long day
Checked out 7:45
Walked to bus station
Bus to airport at 8:10
Check in - then wait for flight at 11:10
Arrive Stansted 12:30
Get bags and exit airport.
Come back into airport and get some lunch

2:15 - check in for flight to Palermo
Kill more time in airport waiting for 5:10pm flight.
Stand in the "Priority" queue until 5:10pm
Pass boarding check point only to stand in tunnel leading to plane for a ridiculous amount of time.
Flight departs 45 minutes late
Arrive in Palermo just before 10pm (should have been 9:10)
Finally get bags then buy ticket for airport bus and wait for next bus at 10:30

I thought I would sit in the front seat so I can see the way to the city - bad idea. Driver was a maniac doing 100km in 80km zone and then honking (and almost side swiping) anyone that got in his way.

Got dropped off at Central Train station around 11:15 and then had a 15 minute walk with my bags to the hotel.
Checked in and finally in bed sometime after midnight.
