As I had about 4 hours to wait once I landed in Malaga, I decided to spend some time in one of the bars in the arrivals area, which had outside seating. A large beer and coffee were about €8, and there was plenty of action around the terminal to me amused. It turned out… Read More A Golden Trip Part 2 – A Finnish Night
I had booked my original trip about a year ago, so it is not an understatement to say that I was looking forward to starting. In true toddler fashion, The Poppet decided that she would wake at midnight the night before travel. After an hour of cuddling and settling in my bed, I was able… Read More A Golden Trip Part 1 – Positioning Inverness to Malaga
I’ve stayed at, and reviewed, the Sofitel before back in 2016. Nothing can beat the convenience of being able to walk to the terminal, and the hotel is luxurious. I stayed there again with my daughter and my parents in December 2021. The stay was good overall but not without issues. We had adjoining rooms,… Read More Review: Sofitel Heathrow Terminal 5 with a toddler
There is always something to be said for the Friday night get away from work, whether is it to Rome, Stockholm or, this weekend, back home, to stretch out time and relax. With Inverness as my destination, but unworkable flight times, I took a route I’ve travelled before, consisting of a late flight up to… Read More Aberdeen – the perfect Friday night getaway gateway
I once did an unexpected back to back in Rome when I went to collect my iPad that I had left on a plane. I was not planning to do the same on this time!

One of the nicest things to be able to do after a long haul overnight flight is to have a shower which is, I guess, the point of an arrivals lounge. I could have tried the American Airlines arrivals lounge when I flew back from Miami last year, but as I was travelling with my… Read More Lounge Review: American Airlines Arrivals at Heathrow T3
Christmas in the UK always seems to bring up images of travel chaos in the media, with a sprinkling of snow shutting down roads and disruption on the railways due to engineering works making things difficult. A week or so ago was no exception, with a particularly cold spell hitting London leading to long delays… Read More Flying BA this Christmas? It is meant to be almost but not quite entirely unlike BA!
You would have to be hiding from the media for the last two days if you have failed to read about the issues that British Airways are having with their IT systems. This resulted in an almost total cancellation of the schedule on Saturday and chaos today. Unsurprisingly, given that this is the start of the… Read More MisterAirmiles: Live BA Disruption Update!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love the Heathrow Express. I even once spent £225 in one go booking up transfers for my summer of travel. An offer came through for me to get a free business class upgrade on my next journey, but I didn’t pay much attention to it as… Read More Is Heathrow Express Business First worth the money?
This was my final day of flying for #7flightstoABZ, having flown into Heathrow the day before. It was an early start to drive my hire car back to the airport, but it was a smooth journey, both to Heathrow and through security to the North lounge. The lady on the desk told me that the… Read More #7flightstoABZ – Day 4 – LHR-AMS-LGW-JER-LGW
