14/09/17 – After finally getting to sleep, we woke up extra early to go into town and get some last minute bits, especially some much needed Thank you gifts!
Dan’s parents had very kindly put us up in their house for a generous 2 months whilst we saved extra hard for this trip. We fully appreciated that it could not have been easy, having your fully grown son back at home full time with his Girlfriend in tow, they were truly saints & deserved much more than we could afford to give them as a thanks! After getting those bits and bobs, we returned to them and Thanked them for everything they had done for us, they appreciated it very much.
We set off for the coach station, with Dan’s parents to catch the coach to Heathrow airport where we would finally set off on our much anticipated adventures!
After a very worried mummy (Dan’s, as he has never been on any long distance/time away from family) see pictures of her loitering by the coach door double/triple checking we had everything (so sweet)! What was in store for us, we never could have guessed….
After arriving nice & early for our flights we had a pre-drink to set the tone for our adventures, toasting to our new found freedom, after that at 8pm we boarded a Cathay Pacific flight heading for Vietnam, it would be 12 hours until we would do a 3 hour stop off in Hong-Kong… The flight was great, excellent Service, with great food & free drinks, which went down nicely! 🙂
1st day down… More to come!
