My live trip report!!
Hey! I'm going to try to update this when I can. We'll start off with the journey!
Hi everyone! I'm typing this on the plane right now! We're half way to Florida and we're bored now so the kids are watching Night at the museum 2 and I've come on here lol. Hotel was gorgeous, with comfy massive beds. Uneventful journey down, m25 wasn't too bad. Took about 2 1/2 hours, had a drink at the sofitel after checking in and putting our bags in the room. Over £20 for a round! 1 beer, 1 wine, 1 squash and 1 malibu and coke!
Got upstairs about 8pm, rang Ben, watched a bit of tv, then settled in for the night. The view from the window was amazing. We were right opposite the airport and could see all the planes landing and setting off. The room was gorgeous, as was the hotel, got some lovely pics.
I did set a wake up call for 6am but it never came. Lucky I also set one on my phone! So by 6:30 we were ready to check out. Was a bit of a worry trying to get to the south terminal without the monorail. We had to walk to the north terminal, then up to the 2nd floor to get to the buses, and I had to stand up as it was quite packed and I had nowhere to store my suitcase. The kids went to the back of the bus and were perfectly happy there with their crisps lol.
We got to the South terminal about 7:30 I think and got checked in quite quickly. Our plane was boarding at 9:20 for out 10:20 flight and we had about an hour to wait by the time we'd got through check in and customs. So we spoke to Ben again lol. Had breakfast at Frankie and Benny's which was very tasty.
The plane boarded about half 9 and we were one of the first few people on. We've ended up we a 3 seater in the middle, rather than a window seat so a bit gutted about that but hopefully we'll get a window seat on the way back. I'm actually typing this on the plane! Something to do lol. Kids have been ok, a bit annoying at times but they're bored so it's forgiveable! lol
So we're about half way to Florida right now at the time of writing this, looking forward to getting off and stretching our legs in the lovely Florida heat!
Next update should hopefully be when we're at POP!
