Zimbabwe departure

It all went a bit too quick. One minute I was at the church, next I am sitting on my plane seat.

After loading all our heavy bags on to the mini bus (we all took 2 23kg bags, a laptop and hand luggage) and being waved off, we were starting our first leg of the journey.

We easily transferred our bags on to the National Express coach with the driver joking around saying he didn’t have enough room for all our bags, and headed to Heathrow airport.

Once we had checked the weight of our bags in the re-bag area, we went onto standard airport procedure: self-check in, bag drop off, security (one person had their laptop inspected), walk to gate, board plane. For some reason, the board was blinking ‘flight closing’ an hour before the plane was due to lift off.

Now for an 8 or so hour journey to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Ethiopian Airlines.
