Bearing in mind I'm on crutches I had a 55L backpack and some hand luggage to carry. Gets to Newcastle train station for the 6am train. I then realise that I have 8 mins for the changeover at York! No assistance to be found, thankfully a fellow passenger carried my bags on. I slipped getting off at York and one of my crutches almost when on the track. Again no assistance but kind passengers saved it and helped with my bags. I caught the train with 3 mins to spare. Manchester airport... what can I say. A good 10 mins to the check-in desk. There were 12 wheelchairs and about 50 people wanting to use them. Must have been the geriatric party to Benidorm or something. A woman asked all of them if they were sure they needed a chair which they all said they did. BS. I had to queue 90 mins with my bags to checkin. Then I get told my bag needs to go to a different place because it's not a case. I made them take it as I was so pissed. I nearly collapsed on the plane I was so tired and painful around my ankle. Plane was shit, had 3 or 4 TVs playing some shit movies which kept buffering but I was too ill to take notice. One had Will Smith, another Jennifer Lawrence. Got to Chicago airport which is the size of a city. Find my bag and can't move anymore. From this point wheelchair assistance is brilliant - but they want tips so it was going to be. Flight from chicago to orlando was A+. TV in front of me, all cool. Got wheeled to baggage and then very grateful to be collected by Iain at the entrance. Iain took us to the Hotel - think Prisoner Cell Block H but I'm sure Grant or Jez can tell you more as I lasted just one night there. I was so ill that if someone said they'd take me home I would have gone.
