Half a world closer to home

Just Five More Sleeps

I had a safe, long and uneventful flight from Buenos Aires to Madrid.

I got to the airport in BsAs extra early because I was claiming tax back (these things can take a LONG time). I checked in, and because I was so early I got a great window seat that wasn’t obstructed by the wing.

Trouble was they also gave the same seat away to someone else (we both had the same boarding pass). Some how they decided mine was the erroneous seat and sat me way, way, WAY back, on the aisle, with a broken seat, and a fair mix of annoying passengers.

ho-hum, I’m here now!

The train from Madrid to Barcelona cost me twice as much as my flight from Barcelona to Bristol.
