Day 129 LHR to GRR

Well the time has come to leave the Viking Sun and head home.   

The big suitcases are gone and here we are leaving with the carry-on bags.  Not sure he is smiling.


Goodbye to a wonderful room.  That’s Greenwich out the window.  Our departure from Heathrow started ugly and ended wonderfully.  American Airlines had made a change they forgot to tell us about, so our 10:00 pm arrival into Grand Rapids had changed to 2:00 am the next day with a 7 ½ hour layover in Charlotte.  We were able to change flights, go through Chicago, and arrive in GRR at 6:00 pm.  Super.  Getting all our bags to the new terminal at Heathrow, schlepping them on and off the train and up and down elevators was a real negative hoot, but we made it.    

Our wonderful seats on British Airways Business Class.  Those seats go completely horizontal.  Great drinks and great naps ahead.


The entire Oliver family greeted us at the airport in GRR for a great homecoming.
