Flying visit

July 8th, 2016 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

I had a day trip to Scotland today to go to a meeting in Glasgow, which made it quite a long day, although not quite as long as that day trip to Hengelo earlier in the year. I have still ended up with a carbon footprint of clown-shoe dimensions though.

It should have been easy. A short bus ride to Gatwick, flight to Glasgow with time to meet up with some colleagues who were flying up from Heathrow and still get to site a little early. Unfortunately there was some sort of incident that closed the runway at Glasgow for a while and my plane ended up in a holding pattern for about half an hour, so by the time I touched down I was already a little late.

No sign of my colleagues. I assumed they managed to land just before the runway troubles, but it turned out that their plane did not have enough fuel to circle for as long as my plane did, and they got diverted to Edinburgh instead.

It was still less hassle than getting a Southern Railways train at the moment, so I am not complaining.
