Trip Home

Up early this morning for breakfast and out the door for a bus to the Mainz Hautbahnhof. Quick ICE train to Frankfurt airport only took 20 minutes. You exit the train underground from the terminal and then I checked in for flight home.
Flight flight is to London Heathrow was over 30 minutes late taking off and then we were backed up for 40 minutes circling around Heathrow. We finally landed and I had to wait in line for 40 more minutes for entry, even through I am just changing planes. Then re-enter through security again and instead of a 3 1/2 hour layover its lede than 1 1/2 hour. That may sound good but it wasn’t not enough time to eat at a restaurant and I had to go from Terminal 5 A to C which is another 15 to 20 minutes. Heathrow is huge and they just don’t have enough personnel to handle the large number of passengers that come in and out of terminal 5.
Plane finally did depart 20 minutes late they they were able to make up a little time as we landed in San Diego only 10 minutes late.
Very tired as I went to bed at 9:00 and awoke after 8:00 am next morning.
It was a great trip and I did a lot of walking but worth it. The food and beer was all very enjoyable. I ll have to give it some thought as to what I like best and what the next trip may be. It all needs to sink in.
