We are still traveling. We had a long, 9 hour flight from Houston to Heathrow, in London, with no sleep. We have been at Heathrow Airport since 7:00 AM (London time). Our flight to Madrid leaves in about 1 1/2 hours. So far, it has already been one very, very long “travel day”. We left our house yesterday morning at 7:30 AM, Denver time, for a 10:50 flight. It was about a 2 hour flight to Houston, with a 2-3 hour layover, then a 9 hour flight to Heathrow, and a 5 hour layover here, with a 2 hour flight into Madrid.
On the plane, excited and refreshed. This is as we were just leaving Houston.
At least we got a meal. It was some kind of an Indian chicken dish.
And ice cream too.
London from the air as we are coming in.
London is one massive city.
All I have to say is we ARE NOT fans of Heathrow Airport either. We were told by someone in Houston how Heathrow was a nightmare to fly in and out of. We definitely believe him now. It has been one confusion after another, after another. We had to take the train from one terminal to the next terminal, and it was a massive pain in the neck to get to and to maneuver all around. When we finally got to the terminal we wanted to be at, we realized we could not use our United Club pass like we were planning on using, because that was over at the original terminal where we landed. We did not fee like going through all that mess again. Then we had to change locations yet again, and we did not know where we were leaving from until about 20 minutes before we were supposed to board the plane since it was not posted until then. I will be glad to see the backside of Heathrow, that’s for sure. I am so ready for Spain.
