Up early before most of the passengers are awake

TV

Heathrow closed again

Straight to the Airport

No queue yet

Strike it lucky, on a plane for tonight

Another day in Dusseldorf

1 week before Christmas

Head to town to finish shopping

No luck here…

Discover Germans laws are crazy

Shops can open only one Sunday a month

and it’s not the Sunday before Christmas

Everything is closed

Back to airport

Wait

Wait

Our departure time passes

Wait

Wait

Finally we board

Wait

and then

a cheer goes up

as the plane leaves the tarmac

We were some of the lucky few to get home…
