If we were having coffee we’d be looking at the departure board, a tinge of excitement and a modicum of apprehension in case we miss the gate.
I really struggle with the airport scene. I’ve done it enough to know the drill but not enough that it’s become 2nd nature. The leaving enough time to get through security, the lure of duty free as your forced to walk through it to get to the lounge. The spotting of an empty seat not too far away from the board, but close enough to keep a nervous eye and away from anyone who might invade the reading space.
Today we are straight through security, a minor blip as one of the boys pencil cases needs to be searched…..but aside from that I’d almost say it was pleasurable. We headed straight for coffee, we’d brought some homemade Banana and Chocolate loaf to accompany (a great recipe from Nigel Slaters Kitchen Diaries II)
Destination Lake Como flying via Milan……
The flight came in a little early enabling us to catch an earlier train from T2. Unfortunately the connection we needed in order to claim a score at the change over station didn’t run on Saturday….so were we’d gained time, we lost waiting for our original connection. Hitting Como at 6pm local time.
We are in an small apartment in the centre of the town and can’t believe our luck. Bakery and ice cream shop on our doorstep. The lake 5-10 mins away…this is going to be a lovely break from the norm.
