Off the boat early to get the ALFA bus to the airport (runs once an hour leaving the stop near the old town at 30 minutes past the hour, but remember to buy your tickets before you go for the bus)
Standing at the bus-stop thinking that a hard hat might be a good idea, as branches awere getting blown off the trees, weather forecast has started warning of impending Severe Gale Bf9, good job we are going home, assuming that the airport is open..
Onto the 737 and up and away. Garmin takes a bit of time to lock on to the satellites but comes on line as we pass Corsica and confirms our position. I hadn’t realised the mountains there were so high, but there is already snow on the tops.
Hit the French coast at Antibes and I’m running out of charts…
Back to find London in the grip of a blast of Arctic winds, you could see the Italian passengers wince as they opened the door…
Pity it was just a week due to lack of vacation time but I will probably think of contacting Tim again next year when I have more time available..
