Our return journey looms

This Morning, after our brekky, we packed up and headed out on our 2 hour journey to Heathrow, only stopping to fill up with diesel just before handing back our lovely vehicle.

The sat nav had a glitch, telling us to go the wrong way up a country lane. We didn’t go up that lane, so then she gets that exasperated tone, saying “recalculating”, like we did it on purpose! So the next direction took us through a golf course, a sight for the Sunday morning golfers!! Talk about off the beat track!

So we arrived at the Thrifty office acrosss the road from Heathrow, expecting to use the free “hotel hoppa” service, but Thrifty had their own shuttle service, which took us to Termminal 4. From Terminal 4 we entered an elevated tubular walkway leading to 3 hotels, including the Hilton, where we had a reservation.

It was only 12 noon but we were able to check-in, thank heavens. We spent the afternoon reading and repacking. We had a delicious dinner in the Chinese Restaurant downstairs with a lovely Aussie Chardonnay.

Tomorrow we start our journey home!
