Good afternoon...finally arrived in a rainy London and we are now in Winchester and the sun has arrived with me....about to visit the local pub for lunch...
We had a wonderful flight on Emirates...as an early birthday present for me and a celebration of Robs retirement we flew 1st class via Dubai. The A380 is a stunning experience and I even had a shower at 35,000 ft above the earth. The bathroom was bigger than most of us have at Home. Must say the bar was also a great feature on board...the flight was a really lovely treat...
This is an image captured with my cell phone at the Dubai airport...will upload a few images of the interior of the plane..you have your own little pod with doors that close and inside you have sweets and chocolates and a make up mirror with products as well as a writing desk as well as ones own mini bar...you also get pajamas and slippers.....all I need now is to win the lottery, going to be hard to fly Economy in future knowing whats up front GrinGrinGrin
I am meeting Martyn from epz at the Winchester Cathedral on Monday morning with my camera ...
Have a great day...catch up later.

You'll enjoy Winchester and the cathedral. An old stomping ground of mine. I used to have a pub in Easton (Chestnut Horse) a couple of miles away. Your flight and goodies looked incredible. Have a great time during your stay.
