Blog Post by: In Africa and Beyond.
When I started my blog about 3 years ago, I had to learn to take good photos. It took some time and I had to learn some new skills. I still cringe when I see some of my old photos. Then my husband bought me a Canon Powershot SX50 HS for my birthday. Itâ€™s easy to use and has a great 50x OpticalÂ Zoom lens. No, I donâ€™t use a DSLR yet because itâ€™s more difficult to carry around and more complicated to use. And Iâ€™m quite happy with the compact-ness of my camera. Maybe one day, Iâ€™ll advance to that levelâ€¦
It had not been long after we boarded our British Airways flight in Orlando when my son put his hand into his seat pocket and exclaimed â€ Mummy see what I found hereâ€. I looked inside and pulled out a Nintendo DS. â€œWow, some child must be crying out there for his DSâ€ I mused. â€œOr some adultâ€¦â€ added my son.Â I called the air hostess and gave it to her. She made a note of the seat number and a thought flitted through my head that if I had to leave something behind in the plane, I hoped that someone would be honest enough to return itâ€¦karma and all that. Little did I know that karma would be coming back to me very shortly thereafter.
We had our dinner, watched a movie and fell off into a fitful sleep. The next morning, we landed in London at 7am GMT, but it was still 1am in Orlando, USA which meant that we hadnâ€™t had much sleep. And that means that I was tired and disorientated.
We disembarked at Gatwick Airport, got through immigration, freshened up, and spent 3 hours waiting for our taxi to arrive at the appointed time to take us to Heathrow Airport.
