    Wink Rich & Ann's American Adventure '10 - TRIP REPORT

    ORLANDO, FLORIDA 2010.
    Thur 28th Oct – Travelling.

    The day has finally arrived and after 18 months since we first book and after little over a two year wait we are back on our travels again to Orlando and WDW!

    We don't actually fly until tomorrow but today we will be making our way to Manchester Airport where we sill stay the night in the Radisson there:



    But before we get there we have a lot to do... My firts job at 10.30am is to take Nala & Simba to a local cattery and then once back home we will clean and tidy the house before we pack our cases. We have lists ready for what we are taking and so this shouldn't take too long. It is amazing at how much electrical stuff we are taking!!...

    I also have a check list for little things that need doing before we leave too. (like windows to lock, central heating to check etc...)

    My Dad will be passing by to pick us up at 15.30pm and take us to the train station. From there we will catch the 16.24pm to 'the Airport. It only takes 15 minutes to get to the station but we'd rather be there early rather than late! We will be travelling on a First Transpennine service and not Virgin:



    Having said that, we still get free travel as I used to work for 'British Rail' before the railyways were split up and privatetised in the early 1990s. As part of that process, our free travl on any new rail company was safe-guarded.

    Anyone who is interested in tracking our progress across the pond can do it here:

    Track Flight Status


    Airline name: VS (Virgin Atlantic)
    Departure date: Oct 29th
    Flight number: 75


    Click on 'Track', click 'Track' on the disclaimer and then wait a few seconds while the page loads up.
    One thing to note is the time of departure is UK time!

    I hope they are having an awesome time, and maybe they had a breakfast with Chef Mickey, or a Tonga Toast. (don't like it but hope they do)
