Once I made it through security, I was happy to realize that I still had plenty of time to catch my flight to Stockholm. I was unhappy, however, to realize that Terminal 5 at LHR is a massively crowded airport with very few places to find peace and quiet. Even the lounges were packed to the gills! I had about an hour to kill, so I just moved around from spot to spot to get away from the crowds and chaos.

Boarding was eventually called and I took my time boarding the aircraft. Having just spent 10 hours on an airplane, I was in no rush to get on another one.

We took off without much of a delay, and were soon airborne as the skies started clearing around London. It was turning out to be a pretty nice day as we departed.

The flight was completely uneventful, made pleasant by the delicious afternoon-tea service (with finger-sandwiches) and beautiful views out the window as we made our way over Scandinavia.
