Friday, March 24, 2006Well, I'm back from Glasgow. I tried to get a flight to Athens/Lanarca to fill the days off but the girl I offered to swap with took too long to reply. I hope she knows she's flying and not sleeping in thinking she has a day off. Hmmmm.
Glasgow would have been very nice had I ventured outside to see a bit of it. It was around 2 degrees Celcius, and even though I had my lovely warm coat back from Perth my body could only tolerate going to the local Woolies and back to grab a coke, chocolate and a Sudoku book.
You could see from the crew bus though that it was absolutely gorgeous outdoors - view-wise. From the airport to the hotel we passed these mountain ranges and a couple of them were snowcapped. The were so beautiful, I'm still kicking myself for not getting a picture.
I did, however, snap a picture of the hotel room we stayed in.
It was very nice, although the pillows had too much stuffing in them which totally wrecked my neck for the return flight. They won hands down for the best buffet breakfast, and got extra points for forgetting to charge it to my room upon check out :-) The burger I had for dinner though was very disappointing, even with bacon. I had to put on tomato sauce and mayo - Eeek! You know it's bad when I have to resort to condiments to make something taste better. Wouldn't happen with Metro food, that's for sure...
My next flight is Istanbul, which has a bit of a reputation. I have a slightly sliced hand (believe it or not those wheelie cabin bags are very dangerous if you're not careful. I've drawn blood from them twice already) so I hope it will heal adequately in time for the flight. I also cut myself opening a wine bottle whose lid refused to budge. I'll have to get Dettol next time I'm in Perth. They have Dettol handwash here but not the antiseptic. Work THAT out.1 comments
