Rotterdam, Netherlands Oct. 2008: Arriving in Heathrow from Rotterdam

05OCT08 Heathrow International , London England (LHR)

By 9:15a, we arrived at the gate. I collected my bag that I had gate checked from one of the rows in the plane as the flight attendant had stored it there.
I then made my way out of the plane walking on the ground then up to the terminal. This was actually quite cool. The weather was overcast and slight rain, but did not feel as cold as Rotterdam.

In no time, I was in the Immigration Hall. I tried using the Iris machine, but twice it failed to recognize me. I think I will have to re-do my biometrics. I then went to the regular line and waited for a about 10 minutes to be processed.

After all that was over, I made my way to Customs and then out to the arrivals hall. As I had not listed for my return flight just yet, I did so at the kiosk and collected my boarding pass for tomorrow. Now I don’t have to worry about it tomorrow. I then headed for the Underground, where I topped up my Oyster card and boarded the waiting train to the city. In an hour or so, I’ll arrive at my destination.
