back in blighty
12 November 2012 | Ipswich
we have arrived in the UK, and its freezing, not use to having to wear so many layers of clothes.
trip back started a 3am Sines, to catch the 5am bus, which arrived in Lisbon around 8am, followed by short bus journey to the Airport. Check in was 11am, so had a few hours to wait. Flight went at 1.30 arrive in Gatwick at 15.40, train from Gatwick to Victoria at 17.42. Underground to London Liverpool street till 2100 ariving at ipswich at 2200, Taxi from trainstation to house arriving 20.00..... boy were we knackered! We have decided national express all the way to gatwick on return journey !
So from 6th to 19th in Suffolk and 20th to 27th in Leicestershire, were trying to get all jobs done and see as many people as we can and if we haven't made to everyone were sorry advance.
The bus from Sines to lisbon takes 3hours and cost 14.30 euros each, not bad really. the bus from station to airport took 20mins and cost 8euros for both of us.
On the way back as we arrive at 17.10, we will miss the last bus to Sines, (next one is at 7.30am next morning) decided a night in a Pension will have to do as i do not wish to sleep at the bus depot!
Can't believe we've been here almost a week, time has flown by, been to see a few people at Fox's Marina and OYC. Rob's helping his dad on his boat and we've been to see Mongy.
Been in to Ipswich and we've only been a way a few months and are supprise how much has changed. Biggiest shock is paying for coffee lol as we are so use to paying 90 cent for a cup not nearly £2.00 !
Now getting things ready for return journey, trips to chandlery as cheaper over here and having to go shopping for the essentials ..... teabags, marmite, stuffing, birds trifle mix and sweets for Rob !
