Time To Go Home!

Well, the time has come. Back to Toronto we must go.

Thank you Netherlands, it’s been a slice!!

Leaving Central Amsterdam

We were up at 7:00AM this morning and had breakfast at our hotel, the Linden. Leaving the Linden at about 9:00AM, we walked to Centraal Station to catch the train out to Schiphol Airport:

We checked in OK but there was a slight delay as Security scanned Vince’s CPAP and thought it suspicious (believe it or not).

Our plane back to Toronto: Air Canada flight #825
So long from Amsterdam!!!!

We boarded the plane, buckled in and waited for take-off. We were about a half-hour late lifting off, but finally pushed back about 12:30PM (local time) for the flight home. It was a beautifully smooth flight on return; fairly uneventful but when you’re flying, “uneventful” is usually a good thing.

Home Again

We landed at Pearson and got through Customs without incident. I’d prearranged a car with Toronto Airport Limo to pick us up, and they were waiting upon our landing. We arrived home at about 3:30PM to find all was well with the condo. We had to run out to Rabba to buy some food – there was no food in the house (at least nothing that wasn’t frozen)! Robert brought Sophie home at about 7:30PM; she too was glad to be home.
