Myanmar Trip; Day 1 With Michael Hewitt

Last updated : 11 May 2018 By Michael Hewitt


It’s 2:30am my alarm is ringing and it’s time to embark on another epic journey.
Shower and a shave I’m ready for action. I pick up Alex and
Matthew McIntyre and back to my house. Snod Dave and Jimmy are on time and Tony Short and Pete Jenkinson are aboard and we are underway. Phil our driver recalls trips gone by. Early pick-ups, overnight trips, straight from pubs and states on return from European trips. Great days everyone.

Bri,Niber and Pete at the home of Mr Heckingbottom. Seven more In Leeds with Rich, Dave Waterworth,Edwards, Ian Coke, Keith Keith Gaunt, Danny Daniel Brown and a new edition to our trips Mick.

I collect the dues and a smooth trip to Stockport airport. Pete Southam Danny Connell and Scone Hartley meet us there. 21 on the trip.
We get a jobsworth on-check in But I let it pass. A few beers before set off and the planes not full. Uneventful flight with Macca and Alex going for most drinks on a single flight record. As usual I slept most of the way and we are in Abu Dhabi on time. That’s when it starts going wrong. One hour delay turns into 2 we are going to miss our connecting flight in Bangkok. It’s one of those things we have another 5-hour flight to bat. Again, I’ve got sleeping sickness we land 805 flight 850 no chance. We have boarding passes to collect so we are raced through to check in. Great they are holding flight. No such luck. Flight closed and re booked next flight 6 hours.

Shit happens. More tomorrow.
