I won’t be posting in this space for a few weeks but for good reason as I’ll be going to Europe! There will be a lot of talking and selling for work which can be very tiring but I know how lucky I am to be able to go. And for a travel-lover like myself it’s a blessing. It’s so nice to take a break from the routine and from sitting at a desk in front of a computer all day.
It was the perfect thing. We didn’t have to wait very long in a line to get into The Orangery in Kensington Park. For six pounds, we could get a large scone with clotted cream and jam and a pot of cinnamon tea. It may not seem like much but it meant a lot to us.
I was sure I was going to keel over right then and there in the customs line. I was hot and nauseous and the line was moving at a snails place that I didn’t know if I was going to actually make it onto the Heathrow Express. When it was finally my turn in line, the desk agent took just a few seconds to check my passport and BUNAC work visa and with a smirk, reminded me to write the day’s date in reverse from now on – 7th of September 2007, not September 7th, 2007.
