This trip started out two years ago as a provisional cruise booking from Costa Rica, up the Pacific coast calling in at other Central American countries and docking in San Diego. On her trip round South America in 2016, the cruise line was promoting future cruises and new destinations. Costa Rica took MummyAirmile’s fancy, to… Read More GUEST POST – Another year, another holiday for MummyAirmiles
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
I used JustPark for my parking at Gatwick recently. I had been slightly dubious about the exit procedure, given the fact that the instructions on then website don’t make sense.

The drive to Gatwick took just over an hour and at that time… Read More #7flgihtstoABZ – Day 1 – LGW-JER-LGW

My route, over 2 days and including a night in an airport hotel, looks something like this: LGW-JER-LGW-AMS-LHR-GLA-LSI-ABZ. Why?! Good question.… Read More Why take one flight when you can take seven?!
Normally I take the train to the airport. It’s so quick and easy; regular readers will know how much I love the Heathrow Express! I have an upcoming flight leaving Gatwick at 0715, which probably means being at the airport by 0600. I’ve taken a taxi from home before, but that was about £45 and… Read More JustPark – leaving your car at the airport is cheaper than you think!
