Last minute changes to plans saw me changing tickets in Delhi to cancel our stopover in Frankfurt (and therfore Switzerland). Damn. Was looking forward to seeing that beautiful country, catching up with a good friend, sampling the fondue, playing some tunes in the forest etc. Switzerland – until we meet again.
London oh London. can it really be? 3 hours wandering the terminals passing back and forth infront of the tube exit at Heathrow like a caged tiger. So hard not to just grab a ticket and jump aboard a train to Portabello, Camden or any of a number memory filled destinations. Ah well they aren’t going anywhere I guess.
Standby came and went and I was on the next available flight to Calgary. Right up to two minutes to departure and I didn’t know if I was going to be getting on the flight. Standby is a strange way to fly. Sure is efficient though.
Delhi in the early hours of sunday morning. Frankfurt for breakfast. London for lunch. Calgary for afternoon tea. The long haul – but worth it in the end.
Great to be welcomed into the in-laws house and life. Lovely to meet the family after hearing about them all for the last 4 years. A big surprise and it took a while to convince them we were actually at the airport. It has taken a few days for it to really sink in for them.
