Boxing Day saw us heading off to Heathrow.
We waved goodbye to the Little Dog who we won’t see for two weeks. We’ll miss Agnes but as she’s off to stay with the dog sitter she stayed with in May, she’ll have a great time.
We arrived early and so had time for dinner at Oriel, a bistro in Terminal 3 before boarding our ten hour flight to Colombo. We felt much better as we were cold, tired and feeling fragile from the day before.
We were flying Sri Lankan Airlines and had our first taste of Sri Lankan hospitality and food. Both were very good and it was a good experience all round.
And after three tear jerking films (sobbing at altitude as usual) and a couple of hours sleep we were catapulted into the tropics, we arrived in Sri Lanka.
