Last day of our holidays and we can’t believe it has gone so quickly. We have loved every minute of it and being able to share such a long holiday with the boys has been magical. I know we all feel that we could have kept on travelling and also could have stayed longer in each place along the way. Thank you to all the people we caught up with for making us feel so welcome and at home. We will miss you and hopefully it won’t be so long until we see you again.
On our last morning in San Francisco we had to have a ride on a tram. We caught one at the start of the line, near our hotel, but unfortunately so did everyone else so we started off inside the tram As soon as someone got off we headed outside and at least managed to have part of the journey sitting on the outside, Andy even hung off the side holding tight to the handrail. We stopped off at Union Square again where we had spotted an American diner. We had breakfast in the diner and the boys were impressed by the real parts of cars and motorbikes hanging on the walls. They also had great fun playing with the individual juke box in our booth! We then caught the tram back to the hotel just in time to check out and head to the airport.
San Francisco airport was a dream and the staff at the Virgin check-in were so lovely. The boys were so chuffed when an American cop on a segway and one on a bike stopped and had long chats with them, they even gave them junior police officer stickers. Then it was onto our last long flight for the journey home.
Back to reality in old blighty and Andy’s Dad greeted us at the airport with a name card….cute! The boys were so pleased to see him it was quite emotional. Amazingly nothing was much different back home and it was hello to the awful jet lag again.
The end of an amazing trip and possibly the start of many more….where to next year…….who knows!
