Journey from hell

Remember that quote from last February? My epic, 44 hour, journey from Holland to Stornoway? Last February, it was 7 inches of snow that caused it. I can see a repeat coming up when I fly to Holland for Christmas next week. British Airways cabin-crew are going on strike from December 22nd to January 2nd. Perfectly timed to cause the maximum of disruption, and an excellent example how to shoot yourself in the foot. Like turkeys voting for an early Christmas. "Oh we're really reluctant to strike", like hell you are. Nearly a unanimous vote in favour.


  1. Oh Guido, I am so sorry...what date do you were you thinking of flying ? what about any other airline ? but 'spect they will be well booked up by now....Don't tell me you are going to have to go by boat/train/and sea again...It really is the pits for anyone to do this
    Love Sybil x

  2. I'll be saying a little prayer you are not tied up with your travel plans like it was last year. That was horrible. I remember reading about it all.

  3. Oh Guido ... that sure stinks. Perhaps my prayer for a speedy and safe trip will help.
