Arrived in Portugal although a day late

We all arrived at the airport in Liverpool with hours to spare so make a couple of duty free purchases – sun glasses, LEGO and aftershave / perfumes – only to find a delay was placed on our flight. There was a fishy smell given that we were told there was an engineering issue on the plane yet when looking outside there was nobody working on said plane πŸ™ 

We waited around an hour and a half before we were advise we would be sleeping in a nearby hotel and flying the next morning πŸ™

So, we waited to collect our bags and made our way over to the hotel across the street. We enjoyed a drink and pizza before heading to bed as we needed to be up early for the 8am flight the following morning. We also calle the car rental company and hotel to let them know of the delay in the hope that they would keep our car and rooms in situ for us as that would have further tested the start to our vacation πŸ™

This morning was relatively uneventful as we got over to the airport in good time (a small issue over seating but it was solved after about 15 minutes) and had breakfast in Frankie and Benny’s.

The plane set off about 20 minutes late and was pretty comfortable, arriving roughly on time πŸ™‚

Just to collect our bags and car….
