Today did not get off to a good start. I'm off to Florida for five days to attend a conference on "America & Europe: The Ties That Bind". I got up at 5.30 under the misapprehension that my flight left at 8.55. It doesn't. It's at 10.35. And furthermore, it turned out that the ticket had been booked for tomorrow instead of today. I daren't even tell you how much it cost to change the ticket.
And on top of that I left my Blackberry on the back seat of the car that delivered me to Terminal 3. Luckily I eventually managed to retrieve it. Can you imagine the pain of five days without a Blackberry?! The only saving grace of the morning so far is that I am not flying with Air France.
I don't know what it is about me, but I seem incapable of going on a foreign journey without some incident or other.
Anyway, this is a roundabout way of saying that blogging will be taking a back seat today unless Virgin have installed internet access in their 747s, which I somewhat doubt. Is it even possible?
