Travel to Peterborough - pictures and mishappenings

I already told about the Peterborough convention and shared all my pictures of the convention called "The Greatest show in the Galaxy" here:

But is anyone interested in hearing about the actuall travel? Considering how much went wrong, it is amazing I still got everywhere in time. Hear my story:

The plane in Dresden was supposed to leave at 12.50 PM. When I arrived they said, 20 minutes later, due to some repair work. Now I appreciate that they won't let us fly with broken plane, but then again I only had one hour in Frankfurt before the next plane left, and whoever has done the walk from terminal A to B knows it is a long one.
Amazing enough we still arrived at the right time, maybe we had some wind from behind! Oh, while I was on the plane they announced that it was now gate B47 I had to go to, not B23. Small detail.

So I made it, and even had time to eat a sandwich with Parma ham. Out of all the other options, this was the cheapest one. Tell you, Frankfurt airport is quite an expensive area!

Thanks to my co-worker I only had taken hand-luggage with me, as it would have been awful if I made the connection but my suitcase missed getting on the second plane. So when I arrived in Heathrow I could go straight to the tube station and go to King's Cross station. There I wanted to take the train to Peterborough. And there it was where all went wrong.

That's it, that's my travel report. Wonder what will happen in two weeks when we fly to London for the John Barrowman concert. At least I know the way from B to A and vice versa now ;)
