  • Day29

    Journey home continued!

    June 29, 2017 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong at 7.20am, but didn't make it til about 12.20pm - and consequently missed our connecting flight which was due to leave at 12.45pm. Put on a later Qantas flight leaving at 8.00pm but had to stay in the transit area as they wouldn't issue our boarding passes til an hour or two before departure. Very long day! Set off from Hong Kong on time at 8.00pm.Read more

    Journey home

    June 28, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Left Moyra's about 8.30. Quick unannounced stop at Mum's to say final farewell. Just one major jam on the way to Gatwick and arrived in plenty of time to return car and check in. Flight boarded on time but then went nowhere! After a couple of hours we were taken off the plane supposedly so they could replenish the oxygen supplies and then we'd be on our way. Another three hours before we were back on plane and on our way about 6.00pm.Read more
