After the last trip, I’m praying for something a bit simpler this trip (as well as making the plane there and back… I don’t think I’m going to live that down in a hurry).
The prognosis however is… iffy.
- Firstly, I’ve had issues on and off with the Brussels Airlines website for one silly reason (where to enter my miles and more number). This isn’t a biggie as I’ll get a grand total of 250 Miles and More miles for this whole trip, but its nice to have the status in the package. What was more annoying was when I was trying to check in earlier today, and the web site wasn’t playing well on a mobile device. In the end I had to use an old copy of Internet Explorer 7 to make the check-in happen.
- Secondly, I no longer work near Birmingham City Centre. This does impact when I need travel money – so I headed off to the local currency exchange outlet in deepest darkest Sandwell – to find they had all closed… necessitating a trip into the city centre.
- Thirds, there’s a dress code of “smart casual”. This actually has a major impact to me due to my crap left foot (of which the tendons still are healing), meaning I live in trainers/sneekers. I’d rather be comfortable and learning, rather than uncomfortable…
- And finally, it’s a 06:00 flight – which means I have out of the flat by 4:30 for a taxi that no doubt is going to rip me off to the airport.
An iffy prognosis if any. At least I know where the hell my passport is…
Umm. I think I do. I’ll double-check after this has gone live
Anyway, if you’re at TravelMagic tomorrow, hunt me down! I’ll be in a Boarding Area Polo shirt looking half asleep… and if you say hello, you could be the recipient of one of these lovely “Remove Before Flight” Keyrings.
Yes, I’ve added branding. Next Step: Custom ones! 😉
If you’re at TravelMagic, I’ll see you tomorrow. If not… there will be some live updates during the event and my travels 😉
