Zoltan's 40th Birthday Ski Trip

2 February 2017

What an amazing 2 weeks! 5 flights, 8 trains, a few taxis & a broken toe. Skiing was awesome, but seeing friends and family was even better. I hope Zoltan had a great 40th Birthday trip, now onto planning the next amazing Journi! βœˆοΈπŸ‡«πŸ‡·β›·πŸ·πŸ»πŸ§€πŸŽ‚πŸš‚πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸΊβœˆοΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Home!!! 🏑
Almost home, just a quick stop in st Thomas to drop off some fighting cockerels (NOT happy)!
Love the Dreamliner plane! Seats, entertainment, service all amazing, and the Windows don't have sliding shutters, they have tinted windows you can change by a push of a button!!!
Bye bye rainy UK, see you in October!

Bloc airport hotel Gatwick, actually really nice & it's right inside the terminal by departures!
Technical issues! The plane couldn't connect to ground power when it arrived at Gatwick, after 45mins just sat at the gate waiting to get off, the pilot decided to just shut down the engines so we could leave meaning with no ground power, the plane went into emergency lighting.
Smoking room at Munich airport! Can't believe they still have these!
Ship on a roof!
I'm looking sad by the Glockenspiel and it's the last day 😞
