    02/02/09 - Geneva

    Supposedly our last day, but due to the the snow in the UK our flight to Luton was cancelled. All Easyjet could offer was a flight to Gatwick tomorrow, so that it had to be. Good spotting time was lost however in long queues for information, returned baggage and hotel allocations.
