Hmmm, the best laid plans, eh?
Arrived at the airport at ridiculous o’clock on Tuesday morning, got as far as the departure gate only to be told, after much waiting around, to return to the departure lounge as there was a four hour delay due to the French air traffic controllers’ strike. An hour later, our flight was cancelled completely!
Although obviously I was gutted to miss out on a much-anticipated few days lounging by the pool and spending some time with my parents, my disappointment was mitigated as there were families with kids on their annual summer holidays, a group of four sweet teenage lads so excited about their first trip away without their parents, a little old man nearly crying because he couldn’t get hold of the people meant to be meeting him at the airport in Spain to tell them his flight was cancelled …. it was a lot worse for all these people than it was for me.
So, yeah, annoying, but not the end of the world.
As to why I didn’t get on another flight, before anybody asks – there are only two flights a week to Reus from Bristol, and the next one was today, which was when I would have been coming home!
Anyway, I’ve just remembered that I never uploaded my May Empties video, so here it is – enjoy!
