A surprise trip for my birthday couldn’t have started off worse. We arrived at Heathrow airport on Friday night to spend two hours waiting to be checked in due to an accident, which meant that tankers couldn’t get to the planes to refuel.
In the end the whole airport was closed. We came home and rebooked for Saturday lunchtime. At this stage I knew we were going to Brussels but I was not sure where this was and believed it was Germany until we arrived in the country.
