Turkey by Spursfan on 11 June 2009 8:43am
Off to a hotel at Manchester Airport this afternoon, then fly to Turkey tomorrow morning about 11 a.m.

I will try and 'pop in' before we leave, but if I don't get time, see you in 2 weeks!!

Turkey's loss is our gain. :)

Ta everyone! We had a great time, the weather was sunny and hot (the first week it was in the high 30s).

Drove to the airport (75 odd miles - there is one closer but the airline doesn't use that one) early hours of Friday to find an 8 hour delay and that we were being bused to the nearby town (45 mins away) to 5 star hotels. Free buffet brekkie and a few hours kip (very welcome as we hadn't been to bed since 8 a.m. the day before!!). Then back to the airport in coaches so no chance of getting exit seats ! (We try to get there before the buses normally!). Never mind, we managed to get a whole row on our own, i.e. 3 seats for him and 3 for me.

In the end it took off 9 hours late, and we arrived in the UK at about 6.30 last night (UK time).

We thought that the hotel was more 4* than 5* (although very nice) and I have just googled it and found that it WAS 4*!! What a cheek. They said we were going to 5*.

Oh and I've just remembered something else - we woke up and Zak found our passports (that we'd had to give in at reception) on the table in our room so someone must have come in the room while we were asleep! And there we were sleeping on the top of the bed covers, me in bra, pants and rather fetching flight socks, him in pants and flight socks!! Could have been worse I suppose!!!

That would be breaking and entering here! HAHAHAHA

I reckon they probably knocked and assumed we were out - we were completely zonked!!

I was mortified, I can tell you!!

Glad you had a nice time - apart from the journey back.
