Arrived Safely Thu 26th Feb 2015
This is the first time we have ever flown to Japan using this route Norwich to Schiphol then Schiphol direct to Fukuoka, and i must say we will be using this route again as it saves us so much time,and as you can see by the pictures Norwich Airport was so quiet straight through check in ,nothing like the hassle of going to Heathrow.
Managed to get 3 seats to myself on the long haul flight to Japan this always makes life a little more comfortable than sitting squashed next to someone,so could lie down and take in the view from the window,tomorrow we are off to Okawa Koi Farm so hopefully post more pictures tomorrow once we return.
