The week has finally arrived – we’re flying to Portugal today! We arrived at uni at 10 in the morning, to give ourselves a healthy three hours to pack everything before our taxi shows up. Once that was all done, and the Black Python was safe and secure in its box, of which was bubble-wrapped, we got into our taxi, and off to Stansted.
Got stopped at the security over all of our electronics, as expected. But apart from that it was a (relatively) speedy stroll into our aeroplane, and off we flew!
Landed in Porto safe and sound. Found our taxi man and had a beautiful night-time drive up the country to our hotel. It was already 10:40 at night when we checked in. We got into our rooms and immediately slept in order to be up early tomorrow morning (ideally).
