THE ROAD TO NO WHERE! We sat patiently waiting, listening for the bell to confirm take off! As the bell rang I sighed with relief but was nervous as it was only my second time to use a plane. I glanced at my watch reminding me I had 5 hours to get to Egypt, as always I was very rushed for time and needed to attend the meeting. As we got higher the white fluffy clouds distracted me. I got comfortable and let my eyes shut, not long after a polite young air hostess asked "if I would like any refreshments" I eagerly replied "yes please, could I have a bottle of water and a ham sandwich. I hadn't eaten all day and my belly was roaring, I shovelled it in and was gone within seconds but it hit the spot!
