Greece...

Errr... OK... It's 2:40am... I can handle this... Honest... Of course I can... Because I'm off on holiday to Corfu for a week with some family*... Yay!

I've never been to Greece before, so I'm quite excited, although I've got to be at Birmingham airport for 4:30am to catch the 6:30am flight! ZZZ... Too early

I'm not sure what plane we're on, although Corfu International airport looks rather cool, as it juts out into the sea, and I believe it's one of the shortest runways on an international airport!
Hehehe... lots of reverse thrust may be needed on landing then, cool! Although, it must be a smaller plane than normal, on such a flight, as to use the short runway.
(Not that I've been practicing taking off and landing at Kapodistriason on MS Flight Sim or anything... Honest)
I've got three and a half hours to admire the views, read and chat on whatever plane it is, regardless! :-)

Looks like I'm going to have a fight on my hands, as I will be jostling for window seat position with my nephew. I would be like a dog in a car with ears flapping in the wind if it were possible to open the window, but that wouldn't be a good idea now would it!
It makes me laugh in any turbulence, as apart from adding to the excitement, it also causes my niece and sister squeal, hehehe, how cruel! ;-)

See ya all in a week or so!!!

[* Not just any family I could find to tag along with hehehe. Some of my family of course!]

Today, I'm Most Angry About: Having to set an alarm for 2:30am, Monday morning! Is that the worst alarm call EVER? At least there's no work though!

Have a great time in Greece. We have friends that are moving back to Cyprus (he is from there, she is from Cuba). We have an open invitation to visit, they built a huge house over there. We are hoping to make it next summer or if not, at least our oldest son may get to spend a month or two there.

Patience is a virtue,
Posess it if you can.
Seldom in a man,
But never in a woman.
