Your Boarding Pass Please...

my dear friends...as we left athens reality came crashing down. hard. the idea of flying from athens to london seemed simple at first. what we didn't factor in however,was a layover in copenhagen with 20 minutes in between to catch our next flight to london, then flying into london's heathrow airport and continuing on the underground for an hour and then catching another hour long train to a different airport and then looking for a last minute hotel in the middle of nowhere, in order to catch a flight out the next morning. *please note- this was all done on empty stomachs and our now non-existent trip fund in the most expensive city in the solar system - all hail the mighty pound!
at our wits end and having just survived our own version of 'the amazing race,' we got bamboozled into spending 75 pounds for a crappy room at an old deserted farmhouse in the middle of nowhere, since "everything else was booked." we only had 4hrs to sleep until we had to be up for our next leg of the trip and at the airport at 5am, we tried to put the sad thoughts of the end our trip out of our minds and try to catch some shut eye...things wouldn't have been that bad if the morning hadn't turned into such a sh*t show. our bags were packed and we were patiently waiting for the shuttle to come get us. realizing that our ride was late we went to look outside...only to discover we were locked in our room. yes, that sounds strange, and hard to believe, but it was true. the deadbolt only worked from the outside. quite a genius invention really. we went macgyver on the lock...but no avail. we cursed, we pounded, we tried the to open the windows, but they too were sealed shut. panic was setting in when finally our shuttle showed up, and the driver unlocked us from our cell. we got to the airport with seconds to spare, we ran through check-in and security but of course, anna got picked for a random body search...front of the hands mind you and a serious pat down...lucky gal! but in the end we got on the plane and arrived safely in amsterdam...coming full circle from the beginning of our trip. like the circle of life...round and round she goes... like a spinning wheel...
