In a few months this will be a totally funny story to tell. You are going to Orlando which is super awesome. Take care xx

Enjoy your drinks.
Thanks all 💜

Yes, this will certainly be a story to tell!

Weíre sat in the bar with a Prosecco and Corona now. Pretty good prices for an airport hotel at a total of £9.20 including some McCoyís crisps. We may well have to get a second round!



Iíll join you again from the lounge at LHR tomorrow morning!

Oh no!

There are a few hotels around Heathrow that are still being used as quarantine 😢

I hope you get your money back.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments

Joan, I hope you and Mick are having a wonderful trip so far.

This morning we drove to LHR, dropped our car for meet & greet parking and made our way to have our VeriFLY checked. Everything went smoothly although there were lots of people in the VeriFLY queue who hadnít done VeriFLY which made it longer!

We had fast track security, so luckily didnít take too long there, and then headed to Galleries Lounge South. This is a lovely big lounge and made our morning very relaxed.

I had intended to have some bubbles - there was Prosecco openly available to pour yourself - however last night I ended up having 3 glasses in the hotel so thought I better not

I had a Diet Coke and orange juice (which was very nice), while W had a G&T with bitter lemon tonic which made it a funny green colour!





We also ordered some fruit plus a bacon and hash brown roll each. These were good flavours but the rolls were so hard, I thought I was going to break my teeth!





Then off we went to find our gate in what we thought was plenty of timeÖ but we havenít flown from LHR before and didnít know about the trains to the gates We made it in enough time though and weíre now unfortunately sitting on the tarmac with what we hope is a small delay.

Next stop, Miami Beach!
