The Begining

Day one starts at 11:30 pm as we head across the world.

sunny 18 °C

So three days to get to Brussels. The up side is we are going Business Class. Wow. I can't wait. We were to have left at 8:40 but due to a combination of mechanical troubles and strike we left late. The connection to Manchester would be missed so we were rescheduled. No problem. A light dinner and Peter picked us up for an easy drive to the airport. An earlier flight would have given us a view of the Canada Day fireworks.
We did not request assistance and Grandma was fairly knackered by the time we were through security. We did relax in the lounge and arranged assistance through to Manchester at that point. Travel with a senior in a wheelchair and you get to bypass lineups which is especially nice for the line up to get through immigration in Heathrow. The downside is I don't get to go for a walk so I have to make an effort to walk around the airport while we wait. Business class ruins you for economy travel and I'm not just talking about the free drinks. The flat bed made for five solid hours of sleep! And who should be on our flight with his wife and three children? Daniel Sedin. We actually exchanged a few words. They had two more flights to get to Sweden. The kids were great on the flight even the baby.
