We landed at Heathrow Airport only half an hour later than expected, at just before 7am. Our pre-arranged taxi was waiting for us to to take us to Tilbury, to pick up the van, a journey along a not-too-busy M25 that took roughly an hour.
After that, all we had to do was drive home; 4-5 hours up the A1, to Richmond in North Yorkshire.
And so ends another adventure.
While we were on the Columbus, I had my next cruise assignment confirmed. In June, I will be running painting classes on board the Marco Polo as it sails North, to Norway, The North Cape and Spitzbergen; the Land of the Midnight Sun.
Until then, I just have some jet-lag to shake off…
