Once again it was another early morning flight - we have got quite good at these flights over the past few weeks.  Up at 5, down in reception with bags by 5.45, then on the road.  As it was so early there was very little traffic on the road so we arrived at the airport with loads of time to drop off the car and fill ourselves up with coffee!

 I was a pain through security yet again - set off the alarm again - searched again...............  Jeff and the kids have got quite used to it by now!

Once on the plane we settled back, however, this plane did not have the TV screens in the back of the seats, so the children ended up sleeping for much of the journey to Apia.

We were a bit gutted that we hadn't known about the stopover as we would have liked to have spent a few days here.  Samoa looked beautiful as we came in to land, the sea was the most amazing colour.  At this point in time we had gone back another hour so it was still Friday but we were now 12 hours behind the UK.

On landing at the smallest airport you could ever imagine we had to line up to go into the airport 'terminal' (room really) and all of our hand luggage had to go through security again - just to get in the building!

Once in the building it was a visit to a Samoan toilet and then crisps from the cafe - then within about half an hour we were back on the plane!

A very short visit to what looked like a very beautiful country - we will have to visit again in the future.......................onward bound for Fiji 12 hours in front of the UK????
