On my way

After a flying start from York at 6am this morning I arrived at Manchester airport and everything ground to a halt.

All the computer systems were down so check in had to be done manually. This meant that instead of having a leisurely breakfast with ken and Irene I spent 3 hours queuing and then straight onto the plane. They also tried to charge me extra for the bike which was supposed to be included in the flight. However by the time I reached thr check-in desk they seemed to have forgotten about it.

A smooth fairly uneventful flight, no problems with immigration and an easy transfer to Richmond. Most importantly bike and luggage made it too and finally arrived at the hotel about 12 30 am UK time.

So the adventure begins!

Didn"t see anything of the Royal wedding. Did I miss anything?
