So as the plane soared higher and higher we relaxed in our seats!! Zack was sat next to the window and was amazed by the scenery!! Thankfully it was clear blue skies ad we could see everything below.

Air hostesses came with drinks and me and Ginger tucked into our first holiday JD and lemonade ahhhh this was the life!!
He ordered another round of drinks and ordered the lovely lady they were sat with a Vodka tonic.
Ginger explained to her that it was his first time and that he had been somewhat nervous about the flight, she reassured him no end......10 minutes with a few good JD's in him and a nice friendly chat to the lady, he was vowing that he couldn't understand why he had put it off for so long!!
I was relived!! I couldn't imagine staying off planes for the rest of my life

Bradley soon fell asleep on my knee, so I got my MP3 player out and got the tunes going.... Ahhh bliss.

2 hours and 25 mins later we were touching down in Palma. The landing was a fantastic one.....smooth as a babies bottom.

As we stepped off the plane we felt the heat instantly..... all jackets were off! phewww it was a relief from the chill back home.
We had a quick smoke outside Palma airport
( best ciggy I have ever had ) 5 hours without one!! Then we went to collect our luggage. Now when we went from Manchester we had straps wrapped around our bags, now there was only 2 bags with straps on God only knows what beatings them bags get when we hand them over.... Not to worry!!

We all got onto our coach, ready for the 1hr journey from Palma to Alcudia. We were all quite tired from our travels so we all just sat gazing out the window and relaxing.
It was an amazing traffic system...... just drive anywhere, go round round-a-bouts and forget about lanes!! just all drive into each other To say I sat with my eyes closed nearly all the way is an understatement

There was approx 5 drop off's from Palma to our Hotel in Alcudia...... ours was nearly the last drop. We finally pulled up outside out hotel and finally got to stretch our legs ( and have a ciggie ) We were impressed with the outside of our hotel .......... so we grabbed bags and trudged them up the walkway and into Reception we went.

To be continued................

    Sounds like a smooth journey, you'll have to talk Ginger into a nice long haul flight, own tv in your seat back with movies, games etc, free drinks, colouring books and crayons for the kids. I just get drunk and watch old films from the 80's... bliss!!!
