Moved In! by Fiz

Made it here in the U.K. with my fiance safely, despite a bunch of bullshit happening on the journey.

Here's a summary:

We were supposed to go from the local airport in my home city to Chicago, and then Chicago to Dublin and then finally to Birmingham. However, the flight to Chicago kept getting delayed to the point that we would have missed our flight to Dublin (in fact we saw the AerLingus plane take off just as we were getting to Chicago). The people at the desk tried to help and put us on a flight to Munich that would go to Birmingham. One problem: that flight to Munich DID NOT EXIST. So they had to pull that and put us on a plane from Chicago to London. Okay, whatever, we got there eventually.

We then had to take the London Underground tube network from Heathrow to Leicester Square which had no elevators so we had to lug a good 100+ pounds of luggage between the two of us up a bunch of flights of stairs. We then had to take the tubes to Euston and then caught a few trains to Birmingham and eventually made it home intact.

The easiest part of the journey? The border patrol check in point. Usually that's one of the hardest parts for me since the border patrol officer tends to play 20 questions with me despite the fact I have like 7-8 stamps into the country already lmfao. But since I had a visa sticker, they let me in easily. Our conversation with the officer was just about people losing their fingers/hands for finger prints since they required two of my finger prints at the desk.

So yea, I'm here and safe! Thanks for everyone's well wishes regarding the trip. I'm sort of unpacked now, will be unpacking more throughout the week (mostly finding space for all my toys).

Also would like to thank all my new watchers here. I've pushed over 400 watchers since I've been away for the weekend, so yea, cool beans. Thanks for trying out the site and thanks for all the support!
