Our summer holiday this year was merged with an IT conference that the hub was invited to in Crete. Not a bad place for a conference. Of course it meant that the hotel and dates were chosen for us, but seeing as the hotel was 5 star and it was taking place in september which is when we would normally take a summer holiday it wasn’t really a hardship!
One of the (many) advantages of living in Switzerland is the fab public transport, so we were able to hop on the train to the airport with a minimum of fuss.
Geneva airport always strikes me as an airport that has planned for large capacity but doesn’t really live up to it, hence a less than 5 minute wait at security, but a 20 minute walk to the gate.
There was the usual scrum at the gate when the first announcement was made (it being Easyjet), but still having a toddler has it’s advantages so we were one of the first on. I’m not the best flyer so the hub sat with the kids and I sat across the aisle.
The 3 hour flight was fairly uneventful, although I did get a few strange looks when I brought my crochet out (its okay, I had a bamboo hook!) and ma boy had horrible earache on the way down, not solved with sweets or water.
So, touch down Heraklion airport, and off to find the hire car which was a tedious 90 minute wait. Hotel here we come!
