the light goes off
and we are told we can take off our seat belts, I watch the cabin crew work like little beavers between the red curtain, the tv comes on and we realsie we have forgotten the earphones haha. I can’t take it all in fast enough, and all I want to do is watch the world pass by beneath us. I see Manchester disappear and as we continue down the length if .england we try to guess where we are. Tea is served and I buy a set of earphones for little legs, who has trouble keeping them on her head as they are a bit big. We have a little turbulance going past Milton Keynes area but it was only like going over the speed bumps on the road, We are served with drinks and try to settle down again but my eyes continue to wander towards the window drinking in the sight as we leave the English coast and head out across the Channel. Over France we are above the clouds, so close you would think you could touch them. The kids decide they want to sit together so whirling dervish joins us in our seats, out come the colouring books and pens and they happily play for ten minutes or so before breakfast is served. We have no sooner finished that when the coast of France seems to have gone and there is the glittering Mediteranean sea.
“Please fasten your seatbelts and prepare to land” comes across the tannoy and as everyone does a hush descends across the plane. One little voice pipes up at the back of me ” Will someone please tell the driver I am just not prepared to land” says whirling dervish and as all the passengers laugh the plane angles and down we go.
The light goes off a second time, belts are unbuckled and we excitedly grab our hand luggage and head for the door, as I reach the door the heat hits me, and I realise that there is no tunnel here we have to go down the steps. I stop at the top in awe at the sight in front of me ……
