OK – so my post wasn’t so wonderful today – no content, no pictures: goodness me! You readers are so picky! Can’t a girl have a bad hair day? Or, in my case, I actually had to leave the comfort of my home office and fly to Gothenburg on business. That meant getting up early, putting on my clean clothes (not my ‘doggie’ ones) and trying to find matching socks.
I dozed off in the taxi and woke up as we drove into a very large … well, shopping area. Huge warehouses of food, computers and sporting goods. And there, tucked behind the warehouses, was the airport. This is the first thing you see as you turn into the city airport. Not a comforting sight if you happen to be afraid of flying. Luckily, I’m not, but it fooled me for a second in my dozy state of mind.
The flight was delayed and when we did get off the ground, it was bumpy.
Landed. Rain. The taxi driver got lost. But I finally made it – and was only about 10 minutes late!
Same procedure on the way home. Delayed. And then in the air: “Ladies and gentlemen, we may experience a bit of turbulence as…” The rest was drowned out by people’s screams.
The taxi driver on the way home talked to himself a lot. Sometimes he directed a comment to me. It was difficult to tell. I had to spend most of the journey giving him directions! (Mmm.. you would have thought that being able to find places was an integral part of their job description.)
As for the meeting? It was successful! We nailed a complete web-based learning program that really will have a lot of content – and some pictures too!
