Having arrived at Luton late last night, Alex and I were joined by our riding partner, Ant. Ant is a good friend and previous travel partner of mine who will be joining us to Baku before flying home for further studies.
Having played the obligatory game of frisbee in the airport and keen to catch a couple of hours of sleep on the cold granite floor, we created an Afrikaner-style laager (wagon fort) with our bikes and trolleys and promptly fell asleep to the dulcet tones of the tannoy. now heading to check our bags in!
Checked in and through security having jumped the queue due to bulky items and then been asked the weight of our boxes rather than having them weighed. The true answer was far larger than the check-in lady realised!
