Meeting up with the family

Atlanta, United States

After packing we went downstairs for some tasty brekkie for checking out and leaving Hotel Monaco Alexandria for our 20 minute walk down King Street to catch the metro. We arrived just in time to catch the delayed rush-hour train all the way to Green Belt, the last of the day which was perfect for us as this meant no changes.
Then, just a short walk to the bus stop which would take us straight to the airport. Easy and in fact faster and a lot cheaper than our shuttle to Alexandria. No queues at security so time for a quick coffee stop before boarding the plane bound for Atlanta.
We sat right at the back of the small aircraft and I was surprised at just how polite Americans were letting all the other passengers off the plane in order with no pushing in. Quite a pain as we were in a rush though. Then we ran through the airport, caught two shuttle trains to the hire car companies running the whole way as we knew Chris’ family would’ve been waiting for us; exhausted having flown from London. We then collected our two cars and took the two hour drive to Auburn with two very tired yet excited children. Once we’d arrived in our hotel, time for a quick change and shower before a tasty dinner down in the restaurant before we all collapsed in bed.
