Counting down to warm weather

Garry and I have checked in online for our flight to Cape Town. In less than 24 hours we'll be jetting our way down the planet to South Africa's iconic city. The weatherman is promising clear skies and a toasty high of 24 °C. We're in for a treat tomorrow. I've cashed in a fistful of Virgin Atlantic frequent flyer points to secure Upper Class sleeper seats for both of us. We'll then return to London ten days later flying First Class with British Airways, again using frequent flyer points.

The last time we flew long-haul on points was April 2005 when we flew business class to Hawaii courtesy of Air New Zealand. My first day back at work after this trip was the day I was asked to consider relocating to London. How times have changed!
