On the way to London’s Heathrow Airport, Nils took us the downtown London scenic route. So the kids got to drive over the Tower Bridge, then by the London Eye, past Big Ben and Harrod’s, before deciding to head towards Windsor for lunch.
At the airport we found a kids area at A7, but with Soren’s broken arm, he was very cautious so we were only there for a bit until we had to make our way to the gate, which was pretty far away at B46. On board the plane, we had seats in row 53 which was the very back row, which thankfully it did recline. I also booked three seats with one in the middle hoping that no one would take that seat and they didn’t so part way through Maebh was able to lay down.

As our flight left at 6 pm, I was convinced that the kids would be tired and want to nap. But as we were flying above the clouds, it was full sun streaming in the windows so they kept saying it was morning. Finally both kid slept for a few hours. During that time, I was able to watch Dallas Buyers Club – what a movie! The food on-board was great. Soren had an adults meal, Maebh a child and me a vegetarian. I think on the return home, Soren will get a kids meal too as they had more “treats”.
Over all while it was a long journey, it was okay and the kids did great!
