World Trip 2006: Day 118: Finland to England to Canada

The very long day beginning at 5.20 am in the morning.  I walked to the Finnair airport bus which got me to the airport at around 6.30 am.   Using the Finnair lounge I had my first shower of the day (not enough time at the hostel plus lounge shower was always going to be better).

The plane left on time at 8.05 am and I arrived at Heathrow Airport at 9.05 am local time (3 hours later).   It’s very hot in London at the moment.   They had fans on everywhere; obviously the airport is not designed for hot days.   Checking into the British Airways First Lounge at 10.00 am I had 7 hours to kill before my 5.15 pm flight to Vancouver.   I’ll be making the most of the waiter service and the great showers they have here (8 different points of water coming out!)

I’m chasing the sun today.   I’ll be arriving in Vancouver at around 6.35 pm, this is just over 25 hours after I got up and the sun will be up all the way.   The time difference is 11 hours (with 12 hours being the most possible) so very close to be the exact opposite.   Jetlag will almost certainly be an issue.   Hopefully my baggage will make it to Vancouver and I’ll find my hostel so I can crash.   This is my longest travelling day.

Well they lost my luggage, it’s never a good thing to hear you name at an airport after a flight, before a flight it can be good (upgrade) or bad (overbooked flight).   Hopefully it will show up tomorrow as promised.
