He may have millions in the bank, but Paul McCartney isn't above carrying his own luggage. And with his smiling girlfriend Nancy Shevell by his side to help share the burden he looked happier than ever as he arrived at Heathrow Airport today.
The heavily loaded couple were returning from a romantic month-long road trip around the U.S.
Shunning luxury hotels and ditching their entourage the no-nonsense pair fulfilled Paul's lifelong dream of travelling the remains of the legendary Route 66 highway.
They made the trip in an old Ford Bronco truck - the vehicle in which they were first spotted kissing.
The former Beatle and his heiress girlfriend set off from the rocker's home in The Hamptons, New York, joining the Route 66 in Illinois. They then followed the route, which was decommissioned in the mid-1980s, through seven states to Santa Monica pier in Los Angeles.
