Getting to Portugal

Flying into a foggy London

Travel  to Portugal went off without a hitch!  I got more sleep than I expected and our bags arrived on time and intact.

We flew from Calgary to Heathrow, London over night on Wednesday (nine hours).  It was my first time in Heathrow; what a maze of an airport!  It took us a train and two buses to get to our gate.  Luckily we had a three hour layover.  After our layover, we hopped on  a two-and-a-half hour flight to Lisbon followed by another layover and an hour-and-a-half flight from Lisbon to Madeira.  We got a quick glimpse of the  Christmas lights lining the streets on our way to our hotel in Funchal .  It was about 1:30 am on Friday morning before we were happily laying in our hotel bed (the time also jumped ahead seven hours).

Marko’s Notes

We had a bit of a scare when we were picking up our luggage from Madeira’s airport. We waited by the carousel and watched everyone pick up their suitcases. Ours never dropped and a sign flashed “Last bagged delivered.” It was midnight and there weren’t too many people working at the airport. We watched the pilots and flight attendants from our flight leave the airport earlier. Only two security guards seemed to be present and they didn’t seem to speak English. I thought our luggage was gone, and there was no one we could talk to for help. Just as panic started to set in, a man pulled up with a cart containing our two bags!
