A Long Day!

100_3591

Boy … it certainly has been a long day!

Up at 3am [UK time]…a 1.5 hour drive to the airport … meeting up with Anneliese … then check in … coffee … a whole shall we shan’t we breakfast discussion … more nattering … locating an internet connection … which is actually hilarious … because Anneliese looks like she knows what she is doing here … and we sooooo did n’t … apparently you had to pay … DOH! Who’d have thought :0)

Then … get this 100_3595… too busy posing for piccies and gossiping … we only nearly went and missed the flight … so we had a mad run to the departure gate … just in time for final call.

A seven hour and fifty minute flight … too excited to sleep so I watched Alice in Wonderland … and a couple of other movies … then we arrived at Newark around lunch time [NJ Time].

100_3598 Once we got our bearings we managed to check in … lounge by the pool … locate some fab Kiwi and Melon Sangrias … pose for photos … all purely in the name of research for you guys. Don’t let anyone tell you … I am not good to you!

And guess what … I have just bumped into THE Wendy Vecchi in the lobby … How totally cool is that?

Sorry it is just a quickie post … I shall be back tomorrow with more … but for now … I really need to get some sleep …  Laters!
