Mobile Benalmadena Dec 19. An all includio winter break with friends. Day 5, travel home.

Monday 2nd December

We both slept in this morning until 9 ish.
I packed up the rest off our stuff before going to breakfast.


We popped back upstairs to get our bags then left them in the luggage room.
It was overcast so we sat in the bar with everyone having a couple of drinks before a quick lunch.


The mini bus came on time, ours came first and then the others straight after. It took about 10 minutes to arrive at the airport.
Linda and Russell went straight to security and I tried to find a toilet. I couldnít find any and the queue for security was short so we headed there. As soon as I was through I dashed off and came back to meet Matt. He was being held up because of the 2 bags we had for toiletries. When I said one was mine the guard said it was fine but then another guard asked for our boarding passes and then looked at our passports. He took Matts away for a few minutes, I was terrified but he came back and we were allowed to leave. I then realised matt didnít pick up the plastic bag with the headphones in so I went back and got that.
Honestly, what a nightmare.
We dropped our bags with Russell so we could look at duty free properly. They had 20% Black Friday off certain things so Matt picked up a litre bottle of vodka, rum and gin for dds Xmas present plus I got honey rum and 2 big bars of milka and it all came to Ä55.
We all met up and then went to our gate.
The others boarded first but it didnít take long for us all to get on. The seat next to me was free which was nice.
I think I slept a little and the flight was good.
Once again Matt couldnít get through the electronic passport control so had to queue and we all waited for him. Heís going to call about it when we get home from Orlando as it happens every time.
Sandy called our mini bus and we made the journey home.
Matt and I went to mums and had a roast dinner before going home.

Another lovely little break away for us. Originally Matt wanted it to be just the two of us as now I have changed jobs we donít see much of each other but he was really pleased everyone else came in the end. We had a fantastic time and itís great to get some good weather when itís cold at home.

Next up for us is a belated 40th in Orlando for Matt and I and a family holiday in Salou in June.
I have booked on the annual girls holiday for the first time in 18 years as well in September.
Thanks to everyone for reading.
We loved our second break there and hopefully will return next year.

It sounds like a great end to a fab trip! Not long until Orlando - how exciting! What are you going to do whilst there?

Sounds like a great trip, even with a bit of airport drama at the end. Enjoy planning Orlando!
