Eight have a blast in Warsaw, Feb 2019. Travel home, Final thoughts and a link to Sandys photos.

Tuesday 18th February

Home time.
We were getting picked up at 12.30 so had the morning to sort ourselves out.
Steph went to the supermarket and came back with pastries for everyone. She also got 2 bottles of 100ml vodka for my Dd. She will be 18 in July and Im doing a 18 things box for her, she said they could go in there.
Tracy needed to buy some cigars and Martin wanted a coffee so we took our cases to Sandys room and headed out. I went to the supermarket and brought 2 more bottles of small vodka for the airport and beers and wine to have a drink in the room.
We had to check out at 11 but we were able to pile in Sandys room until our mini bus arrived.

We walked to our pick up point, just along the road and our driver was there. It didnt take long and we were pulling into the airport.
We went to a cafe just outside for a quick lunch.
I had a roll and a portion of chips, it was really cheap and tasted good.

Tracey and Kim went to check their cases in and we went through security with no problem. It was pretty small but luckily Linda got a table in the cafe. We had a quick look in duty free but didnt buy anything. Martin got a coffee and we got diet cokes to go with my vodka. Also water got the plane.

The announcement came for our flight so we finished our drink. We then had to join a long queue for passport control. It was getting close to flight time and the queue wasnt moving so Sandy asked how long it would take. She was told if they put out a final call we could go to the front. Debbie decided to have another look in duty free and of course we started moving then. Steph called her then went to look for her, Debbie came back laughing as Steph had been shouting and Debbie was coming out another exit.
The queues were all over the place but it didnt take long to board and off we went.
Dd was taking her second theory test but it ended while we were flying.
The flight was fine and we landed before arrival time.
I got a message from Dd to say she had failed again, by one point and she was having a pity maccys and crying in the toilet.
Passport control was quick and luckily the cases came through by the time everyone had gone to the toilet. We called our driver, said our goodbyes to Kim and Martin and waited for the taxi to pull up. Journey home was easy, much nicer not to drive and we arrived at mums. We had a quick chat then I walked home to give Dd a hug and book another test (Im happy to say she passed)

I love city breaks and this was high on my favorite list. The city was beautiful with so much history, it seemed like we did a lot but we only scratched the surface. I would recommend it and visit again. I just laughed so much, it reminded me of my first girls holiday to Turkey. Also for me it was fantastic catching up with Martin and reminiscing about college and our past adventures.
It was nice to try but I couldnt eat all that rich food on the regular. My best meal was the salad!

Most of the photos are from Sandys phone. She has created an album with these and more on if anyone fancies a look.

For the first time in years we havent got our Salou October trip booked. Dd is going to university in September so wont have half terms and his year it is all about her and making sure she settles in.
Oh and I will be returning to Orlando next January so we have something to look forward to.

Thanks for reading.
