It's Vicky's 60th birthday coming up, so we decided we would head out to enjoy some sun in Seville. We are going away with Andrew and Sam to celebrate this big event in style.
I woke earlier than I had planned to - 3:30am - so I had over 4 hours kip, and as long as I don’t get any more screaming babies, I might be able to catch up on a few Zs on the flight to HNL.

So I now had the challenge of getting across New York from JFK to EWR. If you look at a map, the two airports are (roughly) equidistant from Manhattan and (roughly) on the same level.
Once we got the call to reboard, we were back on the plane within a minute, and it was only another 5 or 10 mins before we were taking off for JFK. I didn’t notice the time, but it felt like we were about on time.
The hotel bed was very comfortable – I woke at 5:30 – a touch later than my normal time of waking – although I had two beers the previous night, and that’s a lot for me on a school night.
I spent about an hour in the lounge at Brussels Airport - it’s an ok lounge but there’s nothing much going on - the views aren’t that great and the food/drink isn’t that good either.
I found my way to the Galleries First Lounge at T5. I had enjoyed my first Starbucks of the trip. Jim is my Starbucks name!
Woke up just after 4am and after some last-minute packing I was ready for my taxi ride to MAN airport (well Vick was taking me). BPs had been printed off, laptop bag was packed, and we would be off very soon. I was starting to get excited…
