Going Home

Heather - Saturday 7 November 2009
A visit to MacDonald’s for breakfast and some free internet :-) then a leisurely stroll around Hounslow (where Heather found herself a nice small purple trollybag for all the souvenirs - Paul.), then off to the airport by train. Paul left from terminal 5 and heads for Frankfurt, then Singapore then Sydney to arrive Monday morning around 7am. I leave from terminal 3 onto Helsinki, Bangkok arriving at Sydney around 6:30 on Monday morning.

Tube to Heathrow Terminal 5

Paul - Saturday 7 November 2009
Another BA plane, an Airbus A320, this time.

At Frankfurt I had a wait of almost 4 hours. A lady passenger who was looking lost asked me for directions. I was not much help so we set off to find the gate we would be leaving from. One that was found Susan, we had introduced ourselves by now, and I went for a bite to eat. there was a nice little restaurant where we had a light snack and a German beer. Our waitress, an attractive German lass decided what beers we should try, taught us some basic German and kept us entertained. 

Susan was on her way to visit her mother who resided in Christchurch New Zealand. We agreed to meet up at Singapore and boarded our  Qantas Boeing 747-400 for our second leg.
