Back to the hotel now to collect my bags and make my way to Chambers Street station.

Before I leave I take a few final pictures around Battery Park.

So I get to Chambers Street and guess what I get on the right train.

Guess again.

Anyway, I wonít bore you with all the drama suffice to say I share the rest of the journey with a lovely young lady, from Austria, who is in the same boat. We say goodbye at JFK terminal 5 and I continue on to terminal 7.

So with plenty of time I buy some duty free and head for the departure gate.

Guess what. Was I at the correct departure gate?

Guess again

So here I am sitting there like a delusional arsehole when I get my wake up call. Over the tanoy comes the message "Mr Forrest Gump please make your way to Gate 9, immediately!

I had to run all the way all the way from Gate 1 to Gate 9. I have to swerve to avoid a small child, my bag nearly topples over. I bitch slap some old lady in a wheelchair. Nothing is going to get in my way.

I get to Gate 9 in world record time. What happened I ask? , I thought it was Gate 1. The correct answer of course is " You were at the wrong Gate you dozy limey prick". But I get the diplomatic answer.

Before long I am on the plane and 10 hours later I arrive home exhausted but safe and sound.

So thatís it. Despite the hiccups I had such a great and memorable trip. Iíve had a blast writing this and hope youíve enjoyed reading.
