Greetings from London’s Heathrow Airport where my husband and I have just toured the airport, via multiple buses, for the last three hours. The giant tour was unintentional. We have a 7 hour layover and had heard of a ‘Yotel’ – a short stay sleeping pod – in Terminal 4. We chased the rumor down, with the aid of the Yotel website and several kindly (but misinformed) airport employees, only to find that we had to leave passport control to get to the sleeping pods and that it might take up to 3 hours to get back to our gate. So, no Yotel for us.
We fly through the night tonight to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and arrive at 4 a.m. By that time, we will have flown through two different nights in two different time zones (Washington State night and London night). We are already flagging a bit but are still in high spirits. Though I am not wearing my abaya yet, I will be sporting the fashionable garb before I step off the plane in Jeddah.
I am looking forward to the learning and education that the Entrepreneur’s Organization has planned for us and hoping to be able to blog from my trip but if not, you’re in good hands with Amber who will be supervising and writing the blog while I am gone. As for me, I’ll have the sleepless-night-on-plane thing down pretty well by the time we land.
