Heathrow, terminal 5, originally uploaded by Blair Necessities.

OK, so I am going to try and blog the trip. In some form of order.
We first landed in the UK on our venture to the “other side of the pond”. We even made it to that crazy place that is known as the new terminal five… and all those stories you may have heard… well, they do not do this terminal justice.
We did not, however, lose any luggage.
We did, though, get searched twice (as a standard procedure).
We also, had to wait for our gate to be posted… now I know this is not all that unusual… but I have a tendency to be a bit obsessive about not missing flights.. but the thing is that they only tell you where your gate is about 20 minutes before the gate closes… which SUCKS, especially when traveling with small children (I realize that I may be making excuses here). We also paid $30 for coffee, juice (x2) and ONE bowl of oatmeal.
More pictures taken with a crazy lens that makes Squink and I look somewhat like aliens from another universe and of terminal 5 at flickr
