London & Scotland: Day 16 - Fly home

May 28th    


Having packed the night before, getting ready in the morning was fairly easy. We left some food we didn't need, but took everything else we could. I had booked our transportation on the internet and he arrived promptly at 8:00 AM. But, he was really annoying. He fancied himself a tour guide and asked us all sorts of questions about Iain, which I really did feel like answering. He asked how much he cost, where he took us, blah, blah, blah. We were all thankful he wasn't our guide during Scotland. Yuck.

One the way home, I knew it was going to be confusing for the person at the ticket counter. We were all on the same ticket back to Heathrow, but Allison was on a separate ticket after that. Mom and I were on the ticket back to DFW, Lisa was on a separate ticket to DFW, then another to OKC, and Mom and I on yet another back to OKC from DFW. Well, the ticket counter person was very good, but it did take her about fifteen minutes to figure it out. Once we left the counter, the line was very, very long behind us. Doh!

The flight from Edinburgh to Heathrow was uneventful, as well as the flight from Heathrow to DFW. We flew back in economy, which was horrible. It just a little hard to sleep sitting up. We got Allison on her flight to Amarillo without any problem. On our flight from DFW to OKC, there was another guy with my name and they mixed up the board passes, but not too much of a problem. The flight was delayed about one hour, but all our luggage was at OKC and we got a van home. It was almost 24 hours since we woke up.

All-in-all, it was a great trip. I was so glad that I was able to travel with my loved ones. It was a good day.
