Scotland to Sweden, Day One

Scotland to Sweden, Day one. Early start this morning, up at 4.30 am to catch my flight to Manchester at 7am. Final Destination? Falun! Via Stockholm Arlanda airport though. This meant catching an SAS flight at 10.05am to Stockholm’s main Airport, Arlanda. After arriving in Manchester, ahead of schedule thanks to bmi Regional i might add, I had to pick up my bag then walk from Terminal 3 at Manchester to Terminal One where the SAS Check in was located.  I thought it would take a lot longer than it did, flight got into Manchester just after 8am and I was all checked in and heading through security in terminal 3 less than 45mins later! The SAS flight to Arlanda was on an MD-80, It was perhaps just over half full, and the crew were very friendly and the flight was 20mins quicker than was advertised, which is always a good thing when you still have to collect a train ticket and catch a train to my final city of the day, Falun. After leaving the SAS flight I headed through passport control, collected my bag, went through customs, and was heading for the Arlanda C train station which is handily located in the airport, although it is a bit of a walk, maybe took me 10 minutes from customs to get to the ticket desk for the train....
