    Luggage what luggage!!!!

    February 28, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    The trip home has begun and mixed feelings. Sorry to be leaving such a wonderful place but glad to be seeing my boys again!! Chris and I have had a great time. 5 weeks in a camper van could test anyone but we managed to survive without an argument. The trip from Aukland to Singapore was uneventful, sleeping ,eating, drinking, watching films.....A star is born, Mary Queen of Scots, Mama Mia 2.We had a few hours stopover before our next leg to Paris. On we got and I fell asleep straight away , which is unusual for me as I rarely sleep on planes. I woke to find we had landed??? No we hadn't even taken off !! Due to Pakistan shooting down two Indian planes all flights had to be rerouted away from northern Indian/Pakistan border .😠This resulted in nearly a 90 minute delay . We eventually landed in Paris with no time to transfer to our flight to Manchester. As we got off the plane we were met by an airport worker who took us and two others through the maze that is Charles De Gaulle airport jumping all the queues to get to our flight which was already boarding😱We eventually arrived in Manchester and went to collect our luggage ...what luggage?? It wasn't there...It was still in Paris 😬😬We filled out our forms.....we ll courier it to you when it arrives....Chris was ok she was going to York..I still had a flight to Dublin to catch🙁Yes we ll get it to Ireland don,t worry . So I got my flight to Dublin, waited 90 mins in the cold for a bus , my coat was in my suitcase😖 2 1/2 hours after I arrived in Kilkenny and was met by my nephew who drove me to my sister's .I arrived back after 44 hours travelling happy to see everyone and ready for bed😴😴😴Chris got her luggage at 10pm that night ..mine is still travelling🌍🌎🌏Read more
