Back in September we decided to spend Christmas away from the UK for the first time ever. This seemed like a great plan until last Saturday 5 inches or so of snow fell on most of the UK in little more than one hour. This caused havoc on the roads and crippled Heathrow airport. Our travel plans looked doomed!
We got lucky… We were one of the few that managed to get away from Heathrow on 21st December which meant that our travel plans were going ahead. We eventually arrived in Wuxi yesterday evening roughly 24 hours after leaving home!
The journey was not without it's tales, Heathrow was packed, as was the Shanghai Metro….however the new train station at Hongqiao Airport was simply one of the best I have ever seen.
