Monday 30th July - Pit stop in the Fatherland!
30.07.2012 - 30.08.2012
A Day in some airports
We made it to bed at 11.30pm and awoke for showers at 3.30am, still incredibly tired from not only the lack of sleep, but also the post wedding excitement.
After parking the car, we arrived at Birmingham airport with plenty of time to spare. Once through security, we purchased the obligatory Boots meal deal before making our way to Whetherspoon's for breakfast.
Finally we boarded on the 7.15am flight to Munich with Lufthansea. I was asleep before take off and awoke briefly during the flight, but not properly until landing.
We arrived back to the Fatherland, where we had about 5/6 hours to kill before our next flight at 15.50. We wandered around, contemplated buying watches, before sitting down to read and have a nap.
A little late, we found an internet point where we were able to look at the wedding photos already on facebook. Can't wait to see the rest!
We boarded the plane in order to commence the 10 and half hour journey to Tokyo.
We had dinner on the plane with some rather tastty sparkling wine to toast. I had a delicious Japanese curry and Chris had a paprika based German chicken dish.
We both watched a film. Chris watched 'The Hunger Games' and I chose 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'. We both slept for some of the flight; however the plane was very cold and you remained aware of this while sleeping. Grr!
Breakfast was a jam and a strange combination of omlette, spinach, tomatoes and noodles. We landed on time a little after 10am.
