Couple of pints of Magners washed down with a Strongbow or two would be nice if you have the time.

I shall follow Lion's UK culinary adventures with attention and try to tick off a few more requests when I am there in September/October all being well. Lion could always delegate some of the calories to the Little Lion as I'm sure he will burn them off in short order.

On my list is a portion of UK Chinese chippy deep fried crispy beef in chilli sauce, just can't get it quite as my taste buds desire anywhere near us, also Holland's peppered steak pie.

( remember Lion you can sort the weight gain out when you get back. Extra rowing will help)

I assumed your flight would be mid evening.

We expect a day by day…blow by blow account.

Happy flying. ✈️

Thanks. There wasn't a lot of choice, so late afternoon. Not my favourite, but it's going to the right place. Airport's pretty quiet, at least the international terminal.
